TechPowerUp shot pictures of the upcoming EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti VR Edition graphics card. As the name suggests, this model is designed to accomodate VR headsets, it comes with a 3.5/5.25" front panel that gives you a front-facing HDMI 2.0 port and two USB 3.1 ports. Furthermore, the card itself also has a second mini-HDMI 2.0 port to help with certain headsets.
EVGA wil ship the VR Edition in two versions one with a blower-type custom-design cooler and one with the ACX 2.0+ cooler. Both models stick to the reference clockspeeds.
One thing to keep in mind is that two USB 3.0 ports may not be enough, the Oculus Rift with the controller requires three USB 3.0 ports plus one USB 2.0 port.
