Price drops? Lol.. that rarely happens anymore. It's more like "do I want to wait and pay maybe $50-100 less, or play now and eat that cost", and has been that way for a long time.
Also, if you can't differentiate 60fps and over, more power to you for staying at where you can play. I can notice the difference. 90fps is the threshhold for me to keep things smooth.
Sidenote, have you actually seen anything on a monitor that has higher refresh rates than 60hz? Usually I see this argument (incorrectly) thrown around by people that never have.
Anyway, VR also gets served better by higher frame rates. Same issues, motion sickness, fixed by HFR gaming. That's one reason why I went with a 144Hz monitor.
There are certainly tiers in gaming where people want to be. I'm not looking to game at what my 780 could have done, which is 1080p60. My GTX1080 is at the limit for what I like in 1440p/4k30/60 gaming without reducing settings. That's why I was asking the people that game in that tier for their real world experiences. Also, you might want to consider gsync or freesync. I don't get smoothness issues until frames frop to around 39fps with gsync enabled. It was worth the price.

But honestly, my 1080 on this monitor of mine always looks smooth as silk and keeps me a lot more than just satisfied. It looks great and plays great so I'll try and keep my money a little longer before forking it over for an expensive GPU upgrade.
Game on, bruthas.
Play the Shadow of games (Mordor/War). They're amazing at 1440p. At 4k, it's no contest.
