    VR with prescription glasses

    If you don't want to spend much money get these cheap ass zenni glasses. https://www.zennioptical.com/p/metal-alloy-full-rim-frame-with-spring-hinges/5500?skuId=550021 They are very small and the lens are very close to your eyes so reduces the risk of scratching your headset. They fit perfectly...

    Quest now supports Oculus Rift VR Games

    The SDE and god rays are much better on the Quest when compared to CV1. The Rift-S has even less SDE than the Quest and the screen is a lot more crisp. I tried the 3 meter Anker cable and it worked well but the screen was a lot less crisp than my rift-s. Text that would be clearly visible on...

    The state of VR - Lost it's steam?

    I have about 15 hours so far and have only made it through like %25 of the game. From what I've read there's around 40ish hours of content with all the side stuff. You can grab a Rift-S on black friday for $350 if you're looking to get into VR. Everybody is different and it might be my age...

    Which game are you asking about?

    The state of VR - Lost it's steam?

    Asgards Wrath is worth every penny. Have also been playing a ton of Synth Riders. It supports cross buy between rift and quest which is nice. Thrill of the Fight on Quest with room scale is also great and has cross buy.

    Rift S

    Got a rift-s last week to replace my CV1. The screen is so much clearer, you can actually read text. Only downside so far is the shitty audio but I 3d printed some mounts for a set of koss headphones and that fixed the issue. CV1 is boxed up for good, couldn't see going back to that blurry...

    Thinking of upgrading my i7 4790k to Ryzen

    I think I figured it out. I usually have my OBS footage set to save as mp4. It was set to mkv which hitfilm doesn't recognize so I used VLC to convert to mp4. Those videos were choppy in hitfilm. I set the output in OBS to mp4 and those files are not choppy in hitfilm.

    Thinking of upgrading my i7 4790k to Ryzen

    So I ended up going with a Ryzen 3600, 16GB GSkill PC-3600, Gigabyte Auros Elite B450, and also decided to add in an Adata XPG SX8200 Pro 512gb M2 drive. All in I spent $600 CAD and this thing is noticeably faster than my i4 4790k build. I installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 pro from usb in...

    Thinking of upgrading my i7 4790k to Ryzen

    Good to know. The Ryzen 3600 seems to keep up within %10 of an i7 8700k from the benchmarks I've seen. I figure I can upgrade mobo/cpu/ram for about $550cad and get $300cad or so for my current mobo/cpu/ram. Is there a benefit to 32gb ram these days? I've never seen my ram usage go over...

    Thinking of upgrading my i7 4790k to Ryzen

    I haven't upgraded my cpu/mobo/ram in like 5 years and am thinking it's time now. I have an RTX 2070 and 3 x 500gb SSD's for windows and my games. I'm looking for a good price/performance cpu and from the bit of research I've done it looks like the Ryzen 5 3600 or Ryzen 7 2700x are a good choice...

    RTX 2070 Driver Won't Install

    I can't believe I didn't think of that. Cards already back on it's way to amazon.

    RTX 2070 Driver Won't Install

    I solod the 1070 so I can't try it. I just found out that if I uninstall the drivers and try to get windows to update them it crashes and gives me an error: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. Code 43 I guess this 2070 is faulty.

    RTX 2070 Driver Won't Install

    Hi guys, I just upgraded to an MSI Duke RTX 2070 from a GTX 1070. Before swapping cards I uninstalled nvidia drivers, booted into safe mode and cleaned out the old drivers using DDU. I've tried installing the drivers with Geforce experience, by manually downloading both standard and DCH...

    Oculus Quest

    I bought a new ac1900 5ghz router just for this purpose. Pc is hardwired to the router and I'm standing in the same room as it maybe 5 feet away. I've tried alvr and just bought virtual desktop. The latency is not bad but the image quality is kinda shitty. Some games I don't really notice but...

    Should I pull the trigger on this MSI RTX 2080 card?

    Thanks for the input. I don't need ultra settings at 4k just mostly looking for a better VR experience. I have enough points on my visa card to deduct $600 from the 2080 and can probably get $300cad for my current GTX 1070 so I think I'll go for it. Just been out of the PC loop for so long I...
