CPU now, GPU soon*. I had a 2500K OCed to 4.7 GHz and upgraded it last year. Then I upgraded my GTX 970 a couple months later after the Super cards were released. I wouldn't do it any differently.
Your 2500K will bottleneck any new video card you pair it with. There's no point in spending $500...
I foresee a ~40-50% performance gain when utilizing RT and DLSS over the 20x0 non-Super cards as they'll be better tailored for those now more mature technologies. But without these features enabled the gain in overall performance will only be another ~30-35% for each card tier.
I also predict...
Are you proud of being a hypocrite? You aren't really "taking a stand" if you only do so when it's convenient. For Christ's sake Google practically invented this shit and I bet I know what your default search engine is and maybe even the browser you're using to read this post.
People are so up in arms about this, but I fail to see why this is such a big deal when ad tracking has been a thing for over a decade and nearly every company with an online presence is either buying, selling, and collecting their own information.
As it stands there isn't anything Facebook is...
There are a lot of good articles out there about how to get your "VR legs" and not get motion sick when using artificial locomotion in VR. But the short version is:
Don't push yourself - take a 15 minute break the moment you begin to feel uncomfortable or you will risk feeling sick for hours...
I have about 30 hours into it already and I'm still making my way through the main campaign. I haven't been in a few optional dungeons yet either. Officially there's over 40 hours of content.
Who cares if they know the difference or not? If anyone has a reason to care, it would be Nvidia since it makes real, hardware backed Gsync look less valuable. Those who *do* care are probably looking at Freesync 2 and Gsync 2, both of which cost more due to the more ridged standard, or in the...
It looks like this Link software will work with any good USB-C cable, and there will be a fiber optic cable later this year.
It'll be interesting to see what the trade offs are. The Quest uses 72hz screens. Would they be bumped up when connected to a PC? What about added latency?
If you need the extra speed PCIe 4.0 offers then yeah, AMD's x570 chipset is your only option right now. However only you will know if you will actually be able to utilize that speed. It will be another 8-10 years before GPUs and other components surpass PCIe 3.0.
The waterblock on your 2700k will likely work with a modern Intel system as the mount holes haven't changed.
I just did the same thing coming from a 2500K/GTX 970. I upgraded the mobo/CPU/RAM to a 9700K, and bought a RTX 2800 Super a few weeks later.
