    IMHO, You really can't get more full-on in VR right now than Lone Echo and Robo Recall. If you are into sims, then Elite Dangerous is also a really great choice - but you'll ideally want a full HOTAS setup to go with it. There are lots of...

  2. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Oculus + Touch for 1 week while my buddy is on vacation.

    Relax Troy talk, most of the VR driving games all support a very wide range of wheel/pedal control accessories. And flying games such as Elite Dangerous support just about every HOTAS out there. Steam doesn't really go beyond identifying...

  3. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Rift announces "Summer Sale", drops Rift + Touch price to $400.

    ^^^ Pretty much this for folks that have never tried it and expected a 3D TV like experience. What blows my mind is that this is just Gen 1 VR. I want Gen 3 VR so that I can throw away all of my monitors. :D

  5. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread NVIDIA Announces The New Titan X.

    ^^^ This. If you are going to waterblock, then a Titan X (Pascal) is faster and also has more VRAM. If you don't go H2O, then go for a new 1080Ti with a warranty.

  6. Supercharged_Z06 liked thesmokingman's post in the thread NVIDIA Announces The New Titan X.

    Under water and overclocked the Titans are faster. Refer to the 3dmark HOF, all around single gpu 1x scoring, there are hardly any 1080ti on the leaderboard. Look at the heavier Firestrike workload tests like Ultra and Extreme, hell even regular...

  7. Supercharged_Z06 liked westrock2000's post in the thread 3 or 4 cameras for Rift? recommend cables too pls?.

  8. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Best GeForce GTX 980 Ti?.

    I'd add the EVGA Classified 980 Ti to the list. The Kingpin was targeted a bit more towards the crazy LNO2 benching crowd.

  9. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread 3 or 4 cameras for Rift? recommend cables too pls?.

    Agreed, but it's not the lenses themselves that would get destroyed - the Fresnel lenses in the HMD are great at focusing light in the opposite direction as well - right onto the surface of the OLED displays, which are much more susceptible to...

  10. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Confimed: TPCast is coming to Oculus Rift.

    While the concept of completely cable free VR'ing is very intriguing, I'm not 100% sold on it due to a number of reasons that everyone seems to be ignoring for the most part: 1) Cost: It adds at least another $300+ for the necessary hardware. 2)...

  11. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Inateck 5 port USB 3.0 PCI-e card - anyone using it?.

    Good point. Yes, the quad channel card does eat up PCIE lanes, so there is that trade off - especially if you already have them dedicated to other things like an M2 socketed internal SSD drive. If you can spare the lanes though (which I...

  12. Supercharged_Z06 replied to the thread Inateck 5 port USB 3.0 PCI-e card - anyone using it?.

    I started with the 4 port Inateck card, but ended up upgrading to the 4 port Startech card. I had lots of driver issues, but ultimately, it was the fact that the Startech card offered a separate/dedicated USB 3.0 controller for each of its 4...
