  1. Hi guys, Been awhile since I've been here and upgraded my rig. Because at the moment, its still runs really solid. So Im looking for a whole new build. That is Oculus compliant What are your thoughts on this build: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/M4BhnQGot this info from https://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/wiki/requirements From that list above you can remove the OS, CPU, cause i have a i7-6700 (8MB, bT, 3.4GHz, 65w) cpu. I also plan on uping the video card to a GTX 1080 if $$ left over. Any thought??? Thanks!! Here is Oculus requirements: Video Card NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD R9 290 equivalent or greater CPU Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater Memory 8GB+ RAM Video Output Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output USB Ports 3x USB 3.0 ports plus 1x USB 2.0 port OS Windows 7 SP1 64 bit or newer
  2. Sorry for bringing this post back but i need suggestions. I like this setup. This will be for my son. Ive already bought the Case, GPU, HDD, DVD Drive, & PSU. I just wanted to get your opinions if I should go ahead and buy the CPU + MB + RAM now or do you think it'll get cheaper in a few weeks? Since IB is out. As of now MB has a $20 rebate, CPU had $10 bucks giftcard. What do you guys think?
  3. TigerDirect Deal let me know. Thanks!
  4. Great pointers guys. will definitely save the $$ til next year and wait for the new technology thats over the horizon. I do prefer Intel over AMD. So after reading all the above post. I will stay with Intel. But of course that can always change with whats coming next yr! =) Thanks guys!

This is a sloooooooooow project that should be completed by July 2012. The son only gets a "better" pc if he gives me a report card of A's & Bs, nothing below. =) Any recommendations or changes you think I should consider? Thanks in advance!
  6. Can somebody please explain to me the difference if any between the two sata types: ICH10R and JMB322. which one is best for front or rear case connection. Which one is faster? Thanks
  7. OK, I think im going with the Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 anyone used or have any opinions on this mobo? Thanks
  8. You mean Rampage 2 gene right? is that a type err? Googled it and nothing III came up. I was heading towards the ECS X58B-A after reading the X58 Motherboard Roundup Review any other opinions on that mobo?
  9. Ok, i bought the card recommended. now can you guys recommend a good mobo? Thanks!
  10. I bought it =) met with him and paid cash! now i need recommendation on mobo. please post on this thread Thanks
  11. what mobo would you recommend with this video card? And will this card play Crysis on the highest settings fine? my budget is not to go over $1k, but flexible. my monitor atm is a dell 2001fp and will probably upgrade in the next few months to a 23"er.
  12. Is that card any good? Better than the Galaxy GeForce GTX 260+ 896MB Im thinking of getting?
  13. what site is that order from? Thanks
