Just another run of the mill pre-built for people who haven't learned what happens when you run computers on 30 cent power supplies.

Granted, I do all of my gaming on my FX 4350 + HD7950 happily still to this day, it's not as horrible as people make out, all of my games run 60 FPS at 1080P, only some need mildly dialed back settings like GTA5 or TW3. biggrin.gif

Also, the amount of times in my life this VR hype has come and gone... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfHMSqQKg6s&index=3&list=PLR6RS8PTcoXTjJLrdJ8oHiK5nxfitLtvu

This is a partnership with CyberpowerPc and AMD. So it is not a "another run of the mill pre-built for people who haven't learned what happens when you run computers on 30 cent power supplies".

The people that buy these kinds of computer don't know anything about overclocking. The people that build these computers hardly ever put decent enough power supplies in them.

Untrue, pairing a powerful GPU with an average CPU is more than enough to pull off high frames. Consistency may lack a bit but you will still get high frames unless the game is optimized like trash or at the very least pushing the complete limits of your HW.

Is this the PC from the article? It's $650?..

Edit: Never mind - have to purchase it and the Rift at the same time.

Why not go for an 880k Athlon? It's superior in ipc and can clock at least as good.

only if the core2 in the 4ghz range which is way above an "average" overclock for one.

After a bit of thinking; terrible promotions like this, that give emerging products a bad first impression, are killing them before they get off the ground. This system will not provide a comfortable VR experience, it isn't capable of doing it. Compounding that issue is that these deals tend to targets a customer that might not be familiar with the ins/outs of VR, like how to properly configure the entire user-pipeline.

So you take an inexperienced user without them even knowing better and give them a horrible time, because they lack the hardware and knowledge to do it right. Do you think they are going to want to ever support that again?

A small quick money grab now, the only potential downside is you turn people off to a new tech. I suppose the saving grace here is that this promotion isn't likely to move many systems, so any impact is going to be pretty small.

I "didn't even know" they made an FX 43xx CPUs, even the FX63xx are turds, I guess this is some 4 core EOL CPU.
I wouldn't recommend this machine even to an enemy.

So you know better than cyber, oculus and AMD?

All 3 are behind this system. Can't settings be turned down to achieve playable gaming?
