VR build+headset

Frosty!
 Share

Hey there,

 

Recently I saw the video of "VR on a budget" and I decided to also get in the VR world. I did the steam vr ready test and resulted in an totally ready build with a very high score.

Since Linus used a 1060 6GB and I have a 1060 3GB I don't really know if that's enough for a great vr experience, so I'm looking for some opinions on the topic and tips for a better experience.

I know i won't be able to play the games on their highest settings therefore i'm gonna use the Oculus since that is the lower spec headset. 

 

My current build:

i5 6600K

GTX 1060 3gb

16gb ram 2133MHz

VR is not really worth it. not enough devs that make good games, its just full of reskinned shooters and stuff like that,

 

I bought a vive at launch and played it maybe 12-15 times in total. I dont use it and I wont sell it since they only go for like $400 when I paid $1k for it

Ive played tons of games. all the arrow shooting ones, Arizona sunshine, HH&H, a bunch of defense games. not sure if beatsaber was one unless that that guitar hero-esk thing then yeah I did.

 

out of the 27 VR games I own on steam The Lab was the best and that was just a demo made by valve to show off what you can do in VR. though I will say I did enjoy the movie type things in VR, it was like really being inside of the movie/short.

 

at first VR is amazing. seeing it feeling it, getting super super immersed. but after you play it and get used to it its not as cool anymore. its like oh im used to this so its not really exciting anymore. also the games have to be made really well or its just hard to play them in VR. the star trek game was really good too I thought.

 

its like listening to a song you love, you play it over and over and over again to the point you just get sick of it and don't really bother with it anymore.

 

I will say its super fun to use if you have friends or family. taking turns and seeing peoples reaction is pretty fun. my dad hates video games but a few times I caught him in my room playing my vive when I got back from being out.
