Do you mean 5? There is 1 DVI, 1 HDMI, and 3 Displayport outputs on the GPU. However I guess it would be possible to use the iGPU.

Do you plan on watercooling for aesthetic or for overclocking performance? You could also invest in a custom loop which can be a bit more work and a tad more expensive but it can have better performance and look a lot better.

I think RDR1 might be playable using Xenia/RPCS3. I would have to look into first though. Also depends on how beefy your PC is.

My guess is that Ampere will be released/announced around "Big Navi" so they can steal AMD's thunder. If I were you I would get a used 1070 for around $200 and just wait until the new GPU's get released. By then you will have saved up more money as well and will be able to maybe get a stronger card. Or who knows, maybe the 1070 will work just fine for you. Depends on your resolution/refresh rate, the games you want to play, and the settings you want to run them at.

That should not have an affect on your performance. Your PC will run fine without that software. You only need that if you are overclocking or monitoring something (but there are better alternatives for monitoring).

Its probably much more hassle for you to send it them. Better off unplugging the fan connector and then undoing the 4 screws, then installing the new fan and screwing 4 screws in. Takes about 2 minutes at most.

You didn't mention the resolution your playing on. Try monitoring your GPU and CPU usage while you play. If you have low GPU utilization but high CPU usage then it could just be that your settings are too low. Make sure your on the newest drivers. Also check if anything is thermal throttling, as that could also be a limiting factor.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Buying older VR headsets now"

  • 2 months ago

New odyssey literally just got leaked/announced. If I were you I would try to save up until that comes out. As many people will be selling off their old headsets for it and you can get a good deal.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Buying older VR headsets now"

Personally own a Odyssey+ (The arguably top of the line Mixed Reality headset other then the HP Reverb).

Pros and Cons of each headset.

Lenovo Explorer: Best screen, Worst Tracking, Worst support. OK controllers (subjective).

HTC Vive: Worst screen (Can be improved with GearVR lens swap), Best tracking, Good Support (notoriously bad customer service). Worst controllers (subjective).

Oculus Rift CV1: Ok screen, decent tracking (better with more sensors, standard is 2 with a max of 4), Best support, Best controllers. Facebook.

All in all, it depends on what your looking for. If you will be playing SIM games (Racing, Flying, or something that you want to have the best graphics), than I would go with the Lenovo. If you plan on playing roomscale games, then I would go with either the Vive or the Oculus. The comfort on the two is similar. Also if you get an Oculus try to get one that comes with 3 sensors as it greatly improves tracking. If I were you, I would either save for a Rift S, wait for the new WMR coming out (hopefully), or get a used Odyssey+ (better tracking, MUCH better screen quality and resolution, and subjective comfort (similar to the PSVR fit). If you can, try to see if you can try the headsets before buying to see how they fit. Make sure to measure your IPD as that can affect buying decisions. Lastly, make sure you have the PC that can run the games you want to play (I used to use a 1050ti and with some tweaks it can run most popular games. Although would struggle in games like Asgards Wrath or Boneworks).

Hope this helped. If you have any more questions feel free to reply to this comment or PM if you feel the need to do so! :D

You could use a GPU upgrade. However, I ran my odyssey+ using a 1050ti (which is a decent amount more powerful than your R7 370), and was able to play most games. Beat Saber and Superhot both ran perfectly. Given the fact that the Oculus Rift S has a 2560x1440 display instead of a 1440x1600x2 display (aka 2880x1600) and has a 10hz lower refresh rate. It will be much easier for you to run these games. If I were you I would save up for a used GTX 970/980/1060 or a RX 570/580 if you plan on playing more intensive games like Boneworks or Elite: Dangerous. You don't necessarily have to listen to game or software requirements, aslong as you have a good knowledge of hardware then more often then not there will be some sort of workaround that you can use. Have fun with your new headset! VR is becoming the next big thing!

Yeah it isn't possible to use a Xbox 360 wireless controller unless you have their proprietary adapter. What controller did you end up getting?

Xbox 360 controllers do not have bluetooth. You need the wireless adapter. Your best bet is to use a wired controller or if that is not possible, use a different controller. The 360 adapters are hard to find unless you want to get one from ebay.

But they also don't list the full system specs. The point is, if you want a real graphics card comparison with how it will actually perform. Look at reviews on youtube by well known creators. If you want rough estimates, then userbenchmark is ok.

  1. Yes, very much so. Its still in its early stages but god damn is it amazing. I started with the phone vr stuff but it was absolute garbage. Then took the plunge and got the Oculus Go and that enabled me to get a better feel. That in itself was immersive but the only way I could use it with my PC was by using a software called ALVR and even than I couldn't play games that required motion controls. Only things like War Thunder or Elite Dangerous. But then I found Driver4vr and I hooked up my Xbox One kinect to my PC and it gave me full body tracking. However it was very slow and wasn't very immersive. I then sold my Oculus Go and got a Samsung Odyssey Plus. Nothing compares to it. The display is amazing, the tracking could be a bit better but for inside out tracking its pretty good. There is nothing else like it. The immersiveness of shooting guys in Superhot VR or doing crazy stuff with Rick and Morty. Still haven't tried some of the more AAA titles such as Asgards Wrath or Fallout VR but thats because I am waiting on my GPU upgrade (getting a RX580 8gb instead of my 1050ti). All in all. It is definitely worth trying, even in its early stages.

  2. I would start with the Oculus Quest, it is completely wireless so you can play games on the go or wherever you want. But also they added the ability to connect it to your pc for it to act as a Rift. IMO its your best bet to get into VR and its very versatile. If you are more on a budget then I would look into the Windows Mixed Reality options (which is what I have). A full set is probably about $100 on the used market, which is a steal for what you are getting.

  3. I myself like Beat Saber, Elite Dangerous, and Superhot VR. But there is plenty of games and other software. Some interesting ones are Budget Cuts, Google Earth VR, Asgards Wrath, Stormland, Fallout VR, Skyrim VR, Doom VR, Gorn, Pavlov (basically CS:GO VR), War Thunder, and many many more. I myself have a racing wheel and HOTAs so it allows for much much more immersion and I would say if you are interested in racing games in vr or other simulators, then those are a must.

Quick note: Valve is making Half-Life: Alyx. Which is a new Half Life game exclusive to VR. Might be another good reason to join the VR community.

Anyways, hope this helps with your decision. reddit.com/r/virtualreality has some good information if you are looking for more info. Also feel free to PM me if you have any other questions.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Razer Kraken Gaming Headset"

If your looking for audio quality in a headset. Never ever ever ever ever ever ever, buy something that is marketed as a "Gaming Headset" by a company such as Razer or Steelseries. For the price compared to something not geared towards gamers, it will almost certainly be inferior. Do yourself a favor and get something like the PC37x or similar. The sound quality will be leagues better and the soundstage will also be much wider as its open back. If you have lots of outside noise in your living space and can't use an open back headset then there are plenty of good closed back ones aswell. A good idea would be to go post over in reddit.com/r/headphonesadvice . The people over the can give you some great recommendations, just make sure you read the post guidelines beforehand.

I think the one you are referring to would most likely be Pokemon LeafGreen, or Pokemon Emerald. Those were both for the Gameboy Advance system. However take a look through that page if it isn't one of the ones I said.

I used to be really into LEGO as a kid (or at least younger kid). I had a bunch of Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Avengers sets. I had a cool Hogwarts set . Now it is unfortunately in pieces with the rest of my sets. Also some of my cooler sets were The Battle of Endor , The V-19 Torrent , Malibu Mansion Attack this was one of my favorites because at the time I was obsessed with all the different iron man armors. Hulk's Helicarrier Breakout , and then a whole bunch more Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit sets, Lego Ninjago, Lego Chima, and a metric ton of Halo Mega Bloks sets. Now that I look at it I had a lot of money spent on toys as a kid. Don't even get me started on the beyblade and pokemon card collections.

Its a great learning experience imo. Since my first phone repair I have done many and almost every time it was successful. Except where I punctured the lithium ion battery in my iPhone 6 during its removal. That was the last straw and now I am happily on Android!

You can probably get a half decent one for $15-20. Pretty much just need a couple bits (don't remember off the top of my head), some sort of wedge to get the screen off, and a suction cup usually helps.

Why not replace the battery yourself. A new decent quality battery costs about $15 and the repair is pretty simple. iFixit and Youtube have many great guides.

Only pro for the 2700x is that its cheaper because its an older model. The 3700x is either the same or better in every way. Currently the 3700x is $100 more which I would say isn't worth it unless you need the upgrade path to the 3900x.

PC37X is a good choice. I will be using a Philips SHP9500 and a Blue Snowball once it arrives. The SHP9500 is $85 CAD rn and its open back and really comfortable. For a mic you can get the V Moda Boom Pro (I have heard good things about it). Sennheiser G4ME Ones are good I have heard aswell.
