With the massive amounts of overtime coming in these past 3 weeks, it seems like it’s finally time to build a VR capable rig. This will be a scratch build, maybe only reusing the same beige giant full tower case I’ve had various machines in since '99.
I’m not wedded to AMD, Intel, etc. Generally the most hardware intensive titles I run are DCS and probably MS FS2020 moving forward. Possibly whatever the latest Total War title with the eye candy turned up as well. I’m not an overclocker, so pretty much whatever is says on the side of the box is what it’s going to run at. At the moment 2K/4K isn’t really a concern, but I will probably upgrade my monitor at some point as prices drop.
Total budget not counting VR hardware or a monitor, I’m thinking about $1500. Certainly not going to complain if I can do under that, and I do have room to go over that as well.
I am also totally fine with buying a built system. I have built enough rigs in my younger years to not feel the need to have do it all myself. If a turn key options works I’m not going to complain.
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
No clue on a MB
RTX 2070 Super
2-4GB hdd (I have to see what I have laying around)
850W power supply
Any thoughts or suggestions?
