Elite Dangerous VR Rig?

 Share

Budget (including currency): $1800

Country: United States

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Elite Dangerous, No Man's Sky, and others.

Other details : My build concept for my future PC. My main objective with us build is to access and play games in VR. Elite Dangerous, No Man's Sky, will be the focus of this build but I also want to play other titles such as Mount & Blade II: Bannerlords, Anno 1800, and other similar titles. For the price point can I play these titles at relatively high settings? Or do you see room for improvement? Thanks in advanced!

It has been a while since I played Elite Dangerous, and not in VR as it gave me very bad motion sickness when I tried. From memory the game isn't very CPU intensive. Space travel isn't demanding on the GPU but it does increase a lot on planets. 2070S is probably fine, although I can't be sure as I never tried it in VR. 

 

Some thoughts and suggestions:

  • If you can, wait a little and see what B550 motherboards come in at.
  • It'll probably be a bit of a long wait to see what next gen GPUs are (assume towards end of year). 
  • I'd consider getting an upgraded cooler for the CPU as it will help with cooling (and potentially higher typical turbo clocks) and noise over the stock cooler. 
  • A 1440p display can help a fair bit with the extra pixel area, although I don't know how that works with your budget.

So maybe Noctura CPU cooler (I've only heard good things). I am in the early stages of prep, and was hoping Nvidia would have announced something about next gen consumer GPU's but I get it, waiting for AMD to drop their GPU to immediately say "yeah we'll look at this" is smart. A's for the monitor, was just getting an idea of total packages. If I could have added the Oculus, and a HOTAS to the list I would have as well just to get an overall price. Thank You!
