I don't know what to build... VR related

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'll be going with intel and nvidia for this build. I am looking to build a dedicated PC for VR gaming using the Vive. But I just don't know what I should build. I am on something of a budget, because I already have to buy 2 Vive VR headsets. That is why I can't just use my sig rig, because it is located in my small computer room, which wouldn't even be good enough for 1 VR player, let alone 2. And nobody wants to lose their computer room. So I'll just build a VR rig, to put in the larger, 2-player capable room that I have available. But I'm kind of at a loss as to what I should build.

Is there any reason I shouldn't build basically the same thing that is in my sig? Just an I5 3570k, with a GTX 970?

What's your budget? I'm not sure how well that build would for.

It takes a ton of. Computing power to run vr for one. Are you okay with limiting the type of games you'll play?

I wish you the best of luck. Let me know what you end up going with it. Though I'd recommend saving for better hardware.
