    This is THE video I needed to find. My Sister wants to get a VALVE INDEX. for my Mom. We are clueless what the PC requirements are for VR

    Thanks for the info guys! Any opinions on buying refurbished gaming/VR PC? In order to get a really nice System I’m thinking I’m going to go that route to hopefully save some money

    VR rig that I’m hoping to build after the new year :

    Ryzen 9 5900X
    Radeon 6900 XT
    Trident Z Royal 4000 128 GB (16×4)
    An X570 board
    3x 2 TB WD Black NVME 4.0
    1000 W 80+ Platinum PSU
    And not sure either a custom watercooling system or an AIO cooler

    HP Reverb G2 with knuckles and 4x lighthouses

    Any suggestions? Lol.

    I’m planning on selling my quest 2 and old pc because my pc isn’t able to run Vr in the slightest and I’m trying to find a pc to run an HTC Vive on so I’m able to get full body tracking for Vrchat but I honestly am not very good at pc parts and I am on a budget, yes I am very poor I get it, I have about $1200 saved up but I’m planning on selling my pc and quest for about $700 in total (500 for pc and 200 for quest 2 maybe)

    I was going to order something from digital storm but I’m sure I can either build it cheaper or find another brand just as good for less

    have an oculus2, but my laptop isn’t up for running it so I need a tower setup have everything else but I need either a parts list or an already or pre-made vr ready desktop 2 to 3k or is that too much I would like a decent destop

    Actually I’d buy the CPU to power the graphics card you want first this thinking is kinda backwards.

    Making a new pc build for 2020-2021, I’m upgrading from a i7 3770 and gtx 680. I plan on getting a ryzen 5600x and 3060Ti/3070 for 1080p gaming and using my Quest 1 via oculus link to play VR games. Wondering what would be the better price to performance, knowing that there’s a $150-$200 price gap between the two graphics card what would the better card be?

    Nice video. I have no ides what i’m looking for and was hoping to see some recommendations

  15. pakonicoco on November 3, 2021 at 10:44 am

    Got a cyber power pc for 800 and runs contractors vr with no issues

  16. Mischief on November 3, 2021 at 10:45 am

    Thanks guys. I’m looking for a PC to connect to my Quest 2 (either via Link or Virtual Desktop) – I feel like I’ve got somewhere to start now (especially with the gfx card and RAM recommendations).

  17. H202 VR on November 3, 2021 at 10:48 am

    Thx 4 the tips! The pc that I’m looking at only has 8 GB of Ram but I can always upgrade to 16.

  18. Certified Loser on November 3, 2021 at 10:50 am

    Me who spent 800: 😐

  19. Barthvader Halloween on November 3, 2021 at 10:51 am

    2:51 why do people not like the quest 2? It’s perfect for people who are on a budget, it’s portable, it runs pretty well, and it has some pretty cool games.

    Buy a decent desktop pc made in last decade hahaha can be a older i7 as long as it’s haswell or newer you good, then add a gtx 1060 6gb or Rx 580 8gb or better ( last year they were $120 everyday, but with mining all gpus are in demand ) if you want a great VR experience for cheap windows mixed reality headsets are actually amazing of course a index is better but it’s not so muchbetter that yocan’t enjoy the experience with a wmr headset I have put together 4 setups for my kids and there nephews
    As far as computer being good like I said above if you have a haswell 2012? Or newer intel 4 core you will be fine the difference in the newest and them is really gonna be minimal in vr gaming it’s all the gpu that make a quality of life improvement on having one of the older pc’s will be add a SSD hardrive as your main boot drive and install steam on it and you will have a great experience. Of course if money isn’t a issue order a valve index and a pre built pc with a Rtx 3080 that’s what. I

  22. Emmett White on November 3, 2021 at 10:59 am

    I have a 1660 super so not as good as the ti. Would that work fine using it with the quest 2?

  23. Dagen Hill on November 3, 2021 at 10:59 am
