VR Racers! Will getting a Valve Index solve my clarity problems in the HTC Vive?

Hey VR racers, I need some help determining what to upgrade.

My original Vive has some seriously disappointing, screen door, low-pixel clarity in ACC and iRacing. I can see black dots trailing cars and can't see any dashboard text without leaning forward. Everything is also just a little bit blurry, at best. I can't identify any cars more than like 3 seconds ahead. It makes me wonder if my GPU is having issues. Still, VR racing is incredible, but I want a visual upgrade.

I have a 1080ti and i7-7820X. I know the 1080ti is a beastly card, but I don't know much about VR's preferences.

Would getting a Valve Index solve these clarity issues? And is a 1080ti enough to make ACC and iRacing look good in the Index, preferably at 144fps or more?

Thanks for your help!https://nox.tips/ https://xender.vip https://testmyspeed.onl

There is no PC in the world that can handle VR in 144 FPS at high setting in any simulator. With the now-getting-old 1080Ti you can forget even about 90 FPS in the titles you mentioned.
Of course things change if you decide to lower the settings, but I assume from your post that you're after the eyecandy. 

So it's up to you to decide what you want... if you're okay to lower the settings you can achieve the higher frame rate, Index has the best spec from the mainstream headsets available,
so you will remove the most of the screen door effect, and you'll get the best tracking, but you will have to sacrifice when it comes to the settings of the particular game/simulator.

Generally all the current headsets are the first generation HMDs, so no matter which one you choose, there's gonna be some drawbacks. 

For the reference I will just say that I use the original Oculus CV1, HP Reverb Pro and the Index, and for the quality/clarity I prefer my Reverb, but its tracking is inferior to the two other options.
