Or get a cheap barebones prebuilt to throw it in.

 

I run my original Vive on an i7 6700k and a GTX 960. 95% of the time it's perfectly fine, but it struggles a little when it has to render the holographic "out of bounds, you're about to physically hit something" wall.

Good day Tech Tip Enthusiasts,

 

I have some parts for a gaming PC that I want to gift to my little sister. She has an Oculus Quest 2, and uses it in standalone (standard) mode. She has been wanting a better PC to try PC VR games that Oculus supports, but she can't do that on my old laptop with an i7-6700HQ and GTX 960M. Really, I just want to know if I should even consider buying the extra parts I need to put this computer together to gift to her.

 

What I have:

  • i7-4700
  • Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY Nitro
  • A case

Of course I'd need to buy a motherboard, RAM, power supply, and some storage. I have searched online and found conflicting forum posts about how well the R9 FURY runs Quest VR. It's about as fast as a GTX 980, but I am under the impression that nVidia cards are better for Oculus VR. Do y'all think these parts could build a decent Quest 2 VR rig? It would mostly need to run VR Chat, but she has some other games she wants to try. Nothing like Half-Life: Alyx, though.

 

Thanks for stopping by.

If a mod reviews this Post, can they move it to New Builds & Planning? That was where I was trying to post it. Oops.

Pictures (particularly front panel) and/or model? If it has garbage airflow it can also be thrown in the trash

 

 

Budget?

Country?

Uses other than vr?
