Hey there, i'm looking for a GPU (or more if necessary) that can play VR, but for 2 people (me and my brother) in 1 rig, cause of space issues.

So i was thinking that in order to play VR (solo) you need, at least, a GTX 1060,so a graphics card that has double the performance of a 1060 will do the trick ;)

Which GPU/GPUs should we get ???

Thanks

It doesn't work well for gaming, as I said, Vr is just a monitor, so if you can play 2 games similtaiously using both GPU's separately with 2 different sets of inputs on 1 copy of a OS, then there is a chance. Odd's are, it won't work.

Multi-player VR on a single PC is not currently possible. Also even the fastest video card (a 1080ti) would not have enough horsepower for this. And your assumption that a 1060 is capable of VR is not correct. For VR you really need at least a 1080 for a single player.

I think you're wrong. But even if you are not, it would have to be one monstrously expensive system to even have a chance.

I've tried VR on a low end system like that and was not impressed. I can get a 4k game to run on a similar system but it is not really any fun. NVidia says a 1080 or above is required for a single player VR.

Well a 6600K OC to 3.9 and a GTX 1060 6GB isn't considered a low end gaming pc.

You are right, I don't think it will work. You will need something like this.

I meant two different computers in on chassis (to save space)
I dont know if VR can work multiplayer on the same computer, it really depends on the titles.

I though it was a revolutionary idea :p

VR is just a monitor with an input device. Can you play the same copy of BF1 on the same PC on two different monitors with two different people using two keyboards and mice? Not really, so I would say VR would follow those same restrictions.

When it comes to VR it is. 3.9ghz isn't very fast, it is average for most here I think. A 1060 is not a 1080. Bench mark your system against a modern i7 with a 1080. Because even on the i7 system VR is not just dial everything to max and game on.

As said above, you'd need a case that allows you to build two systems in it. Or get a beefy CPU to host two VMs and two GTX 1060s, with one graphics card assigned to each VM. I think that would work.
