PLease help me buy the right vr computer

Jan 22, 2019
I am doing research for a 2ed vr computer. a lot of miss info out there for a newbi like me. Im hopping this form can help me. Im using a Vive pro w/ lens Mod

i have this now, and i want the next one better. this HP is challenging to upgrade the gpu

Im just using this for Vr nothing else. not sure if gtx 1080i is better for vr then rtx 2080ti. Buying a pre build off amazone is my preferred option but im open to all suggestions.

i might go this way if no one has any major objections

Looks fine to me, you don't mention what kind of VR but both the HTC vive and Oculus Rift work fine on anything from a 1060 6GB or above.
I'm sure a 2080Ti is better than a 1080 Ti and easily good enough for VR, probably overkill.

I have a 1070 and an Oculus rift, everything runs fine.

Your rig looks good though, no issues obvious to me.


Well, if I had $2500 to burn on a VR Ready System, I'd probably look at something like this:

I'd want it small and unobtrusive so as to fit in with the rest of my living room components and my big-screen HDTV.
