  1. They are similar (i.e. browns are much closer to reds than blues). However the tactile bump of browns is at least *noticable* for me. That being said, browns are my favourite, so I'm a little biased.
  2. I would go 3600 as it's slightly better for production and similar gamaing. 3500X don't bother, its simply not worth giving up multi-threading for such little difference.
  3. Well in terms of quietness, it goes linear < tactile < clicky (aka red < brown < blue). Rubber o-rings also help remove a good portion of bottoming-out noise. If you are looking at Corsair, then variations of the k70 are usually most popular.
  4. Realisticly, GPU prices are only going down when (or realistically IF) crypto crashes. CPUs are actually pretty reasonable ATM (at least where I am). RAM however, depends on how much price fixing SK Hynix and co to currently up to... as well as how much RAM phone manufacturers are gobbling up to make their stickers look better than the competition.
  5. Well technically yes, but thanks to plugins it is a pretty damn smart editor, and can run programs as long as dependencies are installed like you say... You *will* need a c++ compiler [e.g. Clang or MinGW (I recommend Chocolatey MinGW)]. These days I really only use (proper) Visual Studio for .NET development.
  6. As far as I'm aware the Cosmos Elite has no FOV adjustment. A lot of people with an OG Vive try to increase FOV by moving the headset physically closer to their face (thinner gasket and such), so you might try that.
  7. Damn... well I didn't know you could even get a 4200U desktop CPU *or* a Gt 720M desktop GPU. At that level I'd probably just go for a 750ti, otherwise I would guess you would run into a CPU bottleneck in most games.
  8. Yup. My controller rankings would go: Vive < WMR < Oculus < Index
  9. Well I mean I'm just here crying b/c your "old" laptop would probs beat my PC in a drag race
  10. Based on this AND your last post, I'm going to say your GPU is definitely having a bit of a problem. What temperature does it get up to during load? Have you tried giving it a slight overvolt (+no OC) or a slight undervolt (+slight underclock). It *is* possibly you just lost the silicon lottery in a huge way... in which case RMA may be next in the toolbox.
  11. Unless you are buying from a retailer (which is perfectly ok), the base Quest 2 should be the same price as the Rift S. Oculus Link doesn't use the port on your graphics card, it uses a standard USB-C port ( or potentially USB-A with connector). However, if you have doubts about Link, or only have USB-A ports, then I would probably just stear clear of the Quest lineup then.
  12. The 750ti is great bang for your buck (it was my last GPU). Unlike the rest of the 700 series it is based on Maxwell rather than Kepler, so is closer to the 900 series. The 1050ti is 60~70% faster than a 750ti and a worthy upgrade. Don't bother with a new 1030, at this price bracket def go for a used higher spec gpu.
  13. While the Rift S works nativly with PC, Oculus have shown a clear 'you are the favourite child' preference to Quest / Quest 2. Supposedly getting a 120Hz option soonTM, alongside having a larger resolution would have me seriously considering a Quest 2. - A Rift CV1 owner Edit: There Is also a new Vive headset on the way (rumoured to be a Quest 2 competitor), but nobody has any idea how far off that is.
