Go to solution Solved by Tedstonegenious,

Yup. also, there is one for each chat box. the one you clicked on is marked as the best answer. 

i’m conflicted.. should i buy a PSVR (which has VERY cool games coming out soon, which i wanna play) or a PC (which has even MORE games i wanna play)

 

i dont wanna make a bad choice and get the VR but then hate it, or get the PC and hate it (i’ve never had a PC for gaming before, i am new)

 

 

 

PLLLLEEEASEEE help...

 

pros? cons?

 

what do you think i should do?

 

 

 

 

ps.. the main game i want on PSVR is Zero Caliber

PC if you can afford it, even then you could still play VR pretty well with the WMR headsets on a cheap PC. Contrary to popular belief, lower-end GPU's like the GTX 1050 Ti can run VR just fine, just don't expect to super sample.

if i get a PC, i won’t want a VR anytime soon, maybe in a while though.. but i will still need to adjust to the whole “PC gamer” if i do..

 

is this a good starter build?

It's not terrible, but there are a lot that needs to change. What's your total budget?

Why not? Is it because of cost? I understand that you'd be hooked into PC gaming in general, but going into VR is amazing.

Gaming PC 100%.

 

More longevity, more games. Cheaper games, modded games, better controls, etc.

 

Also the PC can do infinitely more stuff than a console can do. You can use it for school, etc.

Ketchup is better than mustard.

GUI is better than Command Line Interface.

Dubs are better than subs

partially the cost, but also the fact i want to know if PC gaming is something i am willing to invest time and money into. if i just buy a $600 pc and a $300 VR headset, and it turns out i DONT like it.. that is $900 at least wasted.. so i’d say i wanna keep it as cheap as possible for now.. i will upgrade soon

That is so similar to what I'm using. Same motherboard and ram. better processor though. I would switch the SSD with an M.2 drive, though. That motherboard has a port for that. It'll be better than a SATA SDD, but more expancive. For example, I can do a cold boot in about 5 seconds.

That motherboard has a port for that. You'll have to sacrifice the capacity of the drive a bit because M.2 is more expensive/GB, but your system will be soooo much more responsive if you put your OS on it. 

isnt m2 what laptops use too?

 

 

what processor do you have?

 

and is the motherboard good?

if it goes too far above 400 you can downgrade RAM to 3000mhz

here is a link to a video that explains  M.2 

 It is basically an SSD that is capable of becoming much faster than what SATA allows. I got a Corsair MP500 in my system, but I would go with SAMSUNG 960 pro, they are cheaper per GB

You're confusing M.2 for NVMe.
M.2 is the connection type, and you can have both NVMe and SATA based SSDs with an M.2 connector. An M.2 SATA SSD has the same speed as a 2.5" SATA SSD.

Intel is better at gaming, but it does depend on the CPU you're comparing to. The Pentium G4560 runs games just fine with it's 4 threads. The 2200G is also a good option, but it's $35 more.

Intel's better instruction per clock performance makes them better for gaming. But Ryzen is also good for gaming. Especially on a budget.

Eh, if he keeps the video editing light, and the game dev work. He can make it cut. But he'll definitely need more than 8G of ram

well game development isn’t intensive (much) my laptop with Celeron 2.16ghz 4gb DDR3 can run Unity 3d at about 30fps, blender also runs perfectly..

 

the budget is $400 FOR NOW, i will put something like an rx 580 in it later when i have more money.. this is just for me to dip my toes in PC life. 

 

when end i build it, i will start with benchmarks, testing games, then recording those games.. if that works i will do a live stream to see if THAT works.. i’m looking to play small games (csgo minimum -med settings, minecraft low settings, and indie games from itch.io)

 

again, my crappy laptop can edit videos with... okay... performance.. and this is MUCH better than my laptop.. so it should not have THAT bad of performance

you think so? would 12gb work? 2 for Vega 11 until i buy a dedicated card?

12 GB would offset the channels and getting a build with a 2200G with no dedicated graphics will be MILES better than that laptop.

12 Should be fine. But 16 will give you room to breathe. And I am not sure how good Vega is so I cannot say,

Oh yeah, vega isn't worth it for the value. Sure it's come down in price but also the 1070 and 1070 Ti, even in the used market.
