    Is the HTC Vive affected while using a connection with miniDP to DP?

    I'm wondering if an adapter for my monitor would be best, my GPU only has one HDMI slot, and my monitor is using that up. Currently I am using a MiniDP to DP cable for my vive, but my computer keeps crashing. I mainly think that is because I am using an MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti now. I'm also...

    Will the HTC Vive have "real games" not just tech demos?

    I know from the reviews that the HTC Vive is a great experience, if money is no object. What concerns me is that all the reviewers say there are only "tech demos"/ really short games to play. I have heard rumors that in 5-7 month we will have full sized games. Can anybody confirm this?
