Oculus Rift: Will GTX 1050Ti be enough for movie/netflix watching?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Do you guys think a 1050ti will be enough for watching movies with Oculus?

 

I have a "spare" HTPC that doesn't do much at the moment equipped with a 1050ti. I was thinking of moving it to my bed room and just hook up the rift to that one to watch movies/netflix in my bed. In my mind, it should be more than enough. But just wanna double check if anyone here has done this previously.

 

NOTE! I don't care about gaming; 1050ti is obviously not enough for that. I have my main rig with 1080ti for that task. All I care about here is for movie watching.

we all know what content you will be watching with it 😉


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

Well.... Question remains the same anyhow, doesn't it?

 

But I admit; watching DC's Legends of Tomorrow is a bit embarassing. 😚

well it should work just fine, the 1050TI is more than capable of playing back video at that resolution so the extra VR bitts shouldnt be too hard
