Help with GPU upgrade for use with the Oculus Rift

Empedio
 Share

I'm in a bit of a dilemma, I recently sold my 1060 3GB to upgrade to a better card, because I had a bit of performance issues with my Oculus rift with the 1060 3GB.

 

I've looked a bit into my options, but i'm so torn on which card I should go with. I don't wonna use that much money on it, since I plan on saving up to build a completely new system. The absolute max I wonna spend Is around 3000 DKK (around $450). I'll probably be buying it used on DBA.dk (Danish version of Craigslist)

 

Specs of my current system

            CPU: I5 4670 non K

CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken M22

        MOBO: Asus H81M-Plus

           RAM: 2x Corsair Vengeance 4GB

       Storage: Samsumg 860 Evo 250GB

                     Seagate Barracuda 1TB

                     Seagate Barracuda 2TB

           GPU: GTX 660 (My old GPU i had before i had the 1060 3GB)

           Case: Phanteks Eclipse P300

            PSU: FSP Group FSP500-60HCN 500W

I would worry about upgrading the CPU first, as that will limit your GPU options a little more.

 

An i7-4770 would be a good option.

After that, hunt around for an RX 580 or GTX 1070.

Quote or tag me( @Crunchy Dragon) if you want me to see your reply

Agreed on everything except the 580. Imo VR is only worth it with 1070/980ti/V56 level of performance and up.

I upgraded from an i5 6600 to a 4770 and it's noticeably faster from the extra threads, and that advantage is only going to increase. 

 

As I said above, I would recommend at least a 1070/980ti/V56 or up.

That's an F in the profile pic

That's fair.

 

580's got plenty of VRAM, which is why I recommended it.

As i said i'm a little bit tight on budget, plus it will only be kinda temporary, but i will keep that CPU on mind if i find a good deal.

I will probably be able to get an i7 3770 plus a motherboard from my dads work for free, will that CPU be good enough? ?

 

PS. I got a palit 1070ti from DBA for only 2000DKK (around $300)

Inn my mind i will have kept the i5 4670, it is a slightly bether cpu then the i7 3770 the i7 3770 have bether multicore performance then the i5 4670, singel core performance is the same for both, but if you get it for free just try it for fun, put i wouldnt expect much
