  1. It most certainly will do the job. It's on the recommended by oculus list, so it shouldn't be a problem at all. In fact they did their in-store demos using GTX 970s which are potentially even less powerful than the 1060 6GB. https://support.oculus.com/326247701060681/
  2. Yeah, try wiping the drivers with the Utility I linked and then try reinstalling them when the card is connected properly
  3. If the Drivers are already installed, if you for example still use the same Windows Installation try the Display Driver Uninstaller. https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
  4. You should add an SSD to your build. One of the recent high end samsung/intel ones would suite this build nicely, at this price without a ssd makes no sense. IMO much more important than a Liquid Cooler.
  5. Since you already have a amp I would rather recommend a dac, as with a dac you will have even less em interference as it is outside the case. A sound card wouldn't make a huge difference and for the price a decent dac would be better.
  6. Meaning that they are trash. The ONLY secure way to get rid of the chance of the data ever being read is to destroy the platters. Either by shattering them, scratching them or otherwise completely destroying them. Useful tools could be: Hammer and Nail or a drill.
  7. Best way to prepare them for scraping? Smash them. Its the only very secure way to get rid of the data. See this https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/jan/31/footage-released-guardian-editors-snowden-hard-drives-gchq
  8. I am currently storing in excess of 70 games on my 1TB HDD in addition to a shit ton of programs, isos and other stuff. Its nearly full, but not quite.These games include a good mix of large games like AC:SYN, GTA5, THE CREW, FC3, etc. as well as a few smaller games from around 200MB (Cook Serve Delicious) and Space Engineers (Cities Skylines). This is in addition to my massive 18.8 GB ISO collection as well as documents, projects software like Autocad and Visual studio. For me 1 TB was the right choice, especially since I can just pop in another 1 TB or larger drive if i ever need it. 1 TB should be enough for most users and in most cases even gives a bunch of headroom to expand.
  9. Also, IMO it depends on your use case. Depending on where you will place the computers, what case you are using and what hardware.
  10. It depends. What kind of results are you expecting from the machines? - What games, resoultions, etc.
  11. I actually had a windows (non-rt) tablet with a similar configuration at some point. It is more than adequate for web browsing and media consumption. https://www.amazon.com/Intel-NUC5PGYH-Complete-Preinstalled-BOXNUC5PGYH0AJR/dp/B0150OL7D4/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1475874239&sr=1-1&keywords=intel+nuc&refinements=p_n_operating_system_browse-bin%3A12035945011 EDIT: Its not the best value. But you are getting it in a very small form factor with basically zero noise. EDIT 2: This might be better value if you can throw in some cheap RAM and an SSD/HDD. Complete it would be 330$, but it would have an i3, although I am not certain that it is really necessary.
  12. Ok, maybe consider going for something like a compute stick or a nuc? They are fairly cheap, performance is decent and they are super quiet and power efficient. They are more than enough for browsing and watching videos.
  13. I have build my PC in it (well technically the tempered glass edition, which is internally identical) and it is absolutely amazing. Probably the easiest build I have done so far and I have done quite a few. My only very minor complaint is the SSD mount on the front, as due to the location of the cable management hole the Samsung logo was upside down. QUick tip if this is a problem for you: Pull out the bottom HDD tray and route your cables through there.

I had the 390 Nitro and could't be happier about it. On the Nvidia side I can only recommend EVGA, as they are to Nvidia what Sapphire is to AMD. I currently rock a EVGA GTX 1070 right now, but would in your situation really recommend going with the RX 480. Many will tell you that the 1060 performs better right now and that that is all you should care about. However, in 1-2 generations the RX 480 will very likely be ahead by a lot. This has been seen multiple times both in the 700 series (Nvidia) / 200 series (Amd), where the 200 series cards are still relevant and perform excellent, while the 700 series 780, etc. have vanished off the benchmark list. The same has happened in the last 900 series / 300 series, as the 390 has stayed at its place in the performance chart, while the 970 fell behind.I am not saying that one or the other is better or worse in every case. I just believe that with a tight budget, an AMD card is a wiser choice.
