    What was your least favorite graphics card?

    I'm part of the MX400 group. Taught me so much about not just grabbing what my friends suggested and actually researching myself. After that I saved up till I could afford a used 9800pro. OMG the difference, the Difference!

    Any HTC VIVE charging and headsets mount available

    I'd suggest getting the best HMD you can reasonably afford or wait if we have a close launch date if something decent is coming out. And if the vid card can't keep up, then I think most people are just dropping the resolution to compensate.

    Ya the early 1060 mobile adopters actually came out better as you didn't have to worry about the Max-Q's yet, still kickin along with my i7 6700hq and 6gb 1060. Can even handle most VR games.

    Nvidia Expands G-Sync Support to Approved Adaptive Sync Monitors

    My thought process? Samsung has already added VRR (freesync) support for their higher tiered TV's so that XBOX and such can take advantage while in game mode etc. Which means there's a really good chance a lot of the new TV's at CES this week will show off their VRR support too. That's too...

    The allure of VR

    Speaking of beating on Ony's toe, still one the fence to shell out for that new VR MMO. You literally have to have endurance for a long stints as everything you do is manual in the game, from physical attacks to spell casting. Oh, Orbus, that's it.
