  1. Should i buy a gpu used by miners?

    If it's still covered by warranty and it's significantly cheaper than the rest, go for it. If it's the same price as the others, do a bit more gpu hunting.
  2. Oculus only using iGPU

    Lemme tell you a post 970 story. After Ray got bored of his 970, he decided to save up for a new gpu. He started fixing his neighbour's computers for £15 each. He helped them install windows, clean out their PCs and he taught his older neighbours how to use the 'internet'. He finally saved up enough to buy a used 980ti, which he still uses to this day, although said 980ti also likes turning off randomly and artifacting...
  3. Oculus only using iGPU

    So I came up with a stupid idea. I'm just gonna use my main rig for vr and my laptop for everything else. 7300hq and 1050ti makes a respectable gaming machine. I did not expect that. I expected playing on a 1050ti would be like having a botched circumcision. It's not surprisingly.
  4. Oculus only using iGPU

    Changed it to my dgpu. Didn't do anything. Vr ahem.. 'adult material' works though. It works fine. Boy does it work. Now if you'll excuse me
  5. Oculus only using iGPU

    Since i'm bored and depressed rn, I'll tell you the story. The story of a 15 year old amd fanboy. We'll call him Ray. Ray built his first gaming pc in summer 2015. He was proud of it. It had an i5 4460 and an r9 270. He then switched to a GTX 970 in November 2015. He saw the light. That was Ray's first high end gpu. He joined the green team. BUT WAIT. Ray already had a ltt forums account, from his AMD days. So he decided to be the mother of all irony. He changed his pic to an Nvidia logo. And it stayed like that until now, and it will stay like that forever. Confusing people far and wide.
  6. Oculus only using iGPU

    I've disabled ths igpu from device manager. Now the oculus app says that my rift is not connected to the hdmi port.
  7. Oculus only using iGPU

    Cpu: i5 7300hq Gpu: gtx 1050ti 4gb I did the steamvr performance test. Smack in the middle. Thr gpu is the minimum oculus spec so it shouldn't be a problem.
  8. Oculus only using iGPU

    Checked the bios. Doesn't even have an option to disable the igpu. Guess i'm screwed.
  9. Oculus only using iGPU

    Well... s**t.
  10. Oculus only using iGPU

    Aand how would i do that? Bios?
  11. So I hooked up my oculus to my laptop. Everything is detected, the ports are just fine. But when I put my oculus on and actually try to run some games, it lags. Even if I'm not playing anything, I get like 3 fps. I've went into nvidia control panel and selected my dedicated gpu as my default gpu. My oculus still lags, with my dedicated gpu at 0% usage and my integrated gpu pinmed at 100%.
  12. Will a laptop with a 1050ti be able to run some VR games?

    I didn't buy it for vr specifically. I bought it to play games like HOI4, CS, chivalry, some gta 5 on medium-high settings. It's just that I was wondering if it'll be able to play some vr games. If it doesn't, that's not that big of a disadvantage. A laptop with a 1060ti costs like £1300, by the way. Mine has a 1050ti and costs £853. The £450 difference isn't really justified in my book.
  13. Will a laptop with a 1050ti be able to run some VR games?

    Well, I mainly play games like Roborecall, Modbox, and Onward from time to time.
  14. Will a laptop with a 1050ti be able to run some VR games?

    That's not a problem. It has 1 type c and 2 usb 3.0 ports. It also has an HDMI port.
  15. So I've ordered a PC specialist with the following specs: i5 7300HQ 8gb RAM GTX 1050ti 4gb 1tb HDD Total: £853 The other option is buying a second hand laptop, which has a 980m in it. They are very similar in price. I'm buying the laptop because I travel quite a lot, especially during summer and christmas. I've also been looking into getting something that'd run VR, so I can finally use my Oculus in my living room without moving around my PC, so getting a laptop that's able to run VR games as well would be hitting 2 birds with 1 stone for me. So my question is, should I stick to the 1050ti laptop or swap it for the 980m
