    Should I?

    If you're a fan of Skyrim, then playing it in VR is absolutely amazing. Download Wabbajack and you can choose from a few different mod packs on there. I'm currently playing with FUS and it's great.

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    Now, I'm second guessing the 1600 P+. For some reason I thought the OEM was Super Flower for it. It even has that "rough" look of the G2, P2 and T2 variants. For $30 more, I can get the P2 and send back the P+ that already shipped for about $20 in postage. Is it worth the $50 swap? The plan is...

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    I pulled the trigger. $179.99 after 10% off associate code for a 1600w 80 Plus Platinum with 10 year warranty. Yes, please. Thanks OP!

    eVGA Supernova 16OOw P+ $199

    Running my 3090 on a 1000 G6. I'll probably be going 4090, and really hope my power supply will suffice. I'm very tempted to grab this, and sell my current one and only be out $100-$120 for the upgrade.

    11700K + ASUS Z590-P Prime WiFi - $270. Microcenter - In Store Only

    My friend is thinking of picking this combo up today to put in a 3U rack case for a multi-purpose server. It will run a few things in his house and he would also like to run some VM's off it etc. I don't see him pushing it very hard. With that being said, do you think this cooler would suffice...

    EVGA SuperNOVA P6, 80+ Plat 1000W - $129.99 (less w/code)

    Great price on this PSU. I thought I did good a few months ago scoring a G6 1000w for $120. This is a no-brainer.

    Oculus Quest 2

    Definitely pick up Golf+. I play that game more than any other. Plus, it's cross-play, so if you purchase it on the Quest you can also play it on the PC, if you'd like. I do that with Air Link and it looks much better.

    Microcenter: 11700k for $199.99!

    This, and the 11600K at $149, have been these prices for almost 2 months. So, no need to rush.

    EVGA B stock GPUs on sale now! $1199 3090 FTW3

    My bad. I read your whole post EXCEPT for this part "are playing at too low of a resolution and/or capped frame rate". Apologies.

    EVGA B stock GPUs on sale now! $1199 3090 FTW3

    Not when you're gaming in VR. You need a lot of headroom so you don't get slowdowns, which can mess with you and cause motion sickness. I usually target 60-70% utilization, on average, to ensure I have a smooth VR gaming experience.

    DEAD: EVGA 1600w PSU Sale (T2 $259, P2 $239)

    Gah! I just got my EVGA 1000 G6 a few months ago, in anticipation for a 4090. I should be ok...right? ;)

    Oculus Quest 2

    Those are two of my top 3 games on the Quest 2. If you love real golf, give Golf+ a shot. It's fantastic.

    HP Reverb G2

    I sold my G2 after getting a Quest 2 and using it wirelessly. After playing without a wire, I just couldn't go back. Yes, the G2 has a better screen but it's not that much better, in my opinion. Maybe if the G2 is a 10, the Quest 2 is an 8, which is fine. I've owned a CV1 Rift, Rift S, then the...

    First world problems...(to keep or sell?)

    I recently landed a new job that is going to take up ~60 hours/week of my time for the next 4-6 months, until things settle down. I have a 10850K with a 3090 that I use 90% for VR gaming (Quest 2) and sometimes a AAA game like God of War or RDR2. I'm going to have almost zero time to game until...

    Playstation VR Thread.

    After having 4 VR headsets, the last two being a Reverb G2 and a Quest 2, I can no longer use a wired headset unless I'm sim racing, which is less than 10% of my usage. I sold the G2 because I only use my Quest 2. This is with a 3090, so the G2 looked amazing but the wire just annoyed me to no...

    WD 18TB Red Pro 7200 Rpm, $251 at Amazon

    Something doesn't add up. Zepher's screenshot at the top shows the seller as Chaste. Then, the $251 deal a few hours ago had a different seller listed. Now, the seller changed again to Unbeatable Sale and the price went up to $256. This has to be a screw up on Amazon's site for a smaller drive...

    Whoa! Any way you can check if the serial number shows as valid for warranty from WD? If so, this is smoking hot.

    What game have you put the most time into?

    I played Asheron's Call for almost a decade (taking 2 breaks), and I don't even want to know how many hours I put into it. I've also been playing Heroes of Might and Magic 3 since it released back in 2000. If I had to guesstimate, I would say I've put at least 1000 hours into that game.

    Varjo Aero

    How do you guys feel the optics compare to the Quest 2? My story: Bought a 3090 and a Reverb G2 a year ago. Loved the visuals, but hated the mixed reality interface and controllers, and how poor the edge-to-edge clarity was. I like being able to move my eyes in the headset and still see a sharp...

    It Takes Two

    I just finished this game and let me tell you, it's a masterpiece. I don't use that word very often with gaming, and I might only give that privilege to less than 10 titles in my 30+ years of gaming. Yes, it's that good. The graphics are absolutely incredible. The gameplay is fresh, and there's...

    Two great power supply deals at Newegg (Super Flower 1300 & EVGA 1000)

    I ordered the EVGA 1000 watt yesterday, as the Super Flower 1300 wasn't on sale. Now it is. I still have time to cancel the EVGA and go with the Super Flower. I run a 10850k and 3090, and will likely go 4090 when it launches. I highly doubt the 1300 will make a difference, but just knowing I...

    I'm at a loss here...

    EDIT: I figured it out! I was just testing and turning the PC on first and quickly turning the second power supply on like 0.5 seconds later. I found a post online stating that they have to be turned on simultaneously, or the secondary PS a little before. So, I turned the Corsair on then about a...

    The state of VR technology

    I'm in complete agreement with Chief Blur Buster. I've had a 3090 and an HP Reverb G2 since late 2020. My brother and my best friend both purchased Quest 2's, and convinced me to do so, right after Christmas as they were having a blast playing Top Golf, Walkabout Mini Golf and Eleven Table...

    Witcher 3: GOTY Edition $9.99

    I just picked this up, as I've never played it. I have a 10850K with a 3090 and will be playing on my Epson 5040UB "4k projector". I'm very familiar with modding Skyrim and the Fallout series and see there's quite a bit of modding with this game. Do you feel it's worthwhile to mod this for a...
