I am planning on ordering the bundle thing.
Gaming pc +oculus rift for 1600.

Anyone else here planning on getting that.
It looks amazing.

If you see any cool games for it. I hear they are working on SAO for oculus rift.
Mostly I want VRMMO's. But some of the other games look cool aswell.

I was interested but it's just way too expensive for what is still a pretty big question mark as far as what content will be available for it.

anyway there was a similar thread, but this one is a bit different:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-934163/thoughts-on-oculus-rift

not really any cool games yet but there are some interesting ones could not wait until we get to maybe 2017 or 18 for such good gameplay moments?

you need an OP computer just to be able to run the Rift, and there's barely anything available for it.
maybe in a few years, when the costs go down and more games become available that uses the rift, but not for now.

Biq question though will my 12 core , dual titan x, and now 20 gigs of DDR4 run this thing. I am not really in the mood to build a bigger pc at the moment. Unless they do make an SAO thing..then I will build a Supercomputer if need be.

I'm definitely getting one; my ship date is out in the late April, early May window.

I found that once I was in, I didn't want to leave. It's just too good. I can honestly say content won't be a problem just from how addicting the experience can be.

I would have to say that anyone that is still questioning VR needs to go out and find a way to try it out. Try out the Rift if possible (should be easier to find someone that has one once they ship the consumer models here in a couple months), the Vive once that gets out, or at the very least find someone that can show you the Gear VR.

If you like horror stuff; try out a game called Dreadhalls. It's pretty much just jump scares, but the atmosphere and stuff should provide a good look at whats to come with the horror genre.

Videos; try out a series called "Gone." The first episode is pretty sad (you get a view of a park with a bunch of kids, two mothers) and one of the kids goes missing by the end. The second episode is of some scientist researching some kind of medicine, you then find he's out in some camouflaged bunker in the middle of the woods. So, there's a bit of variety in from episode to episode in the setting and stuff. You get to look around in a 360 degree sphere, with some focus/clue points you can jump to throughout the videos to get a better idea of what happened.

The of course there's the stuff that Oculus, HTC and Valve have been demoing too (although it's unlikely most of us will get to really try out the Vive until it's shipped; there are just too few dev kits out in the wild currently).

I was actually just watching the new Gundam series (Iron Blooded Orphans) and was just couldn't get rid of the desire to be able to look around during the battle scenes in space. THIS NEEDS TO BE A THING LIKE NOW! Oh, well... I'm sure we'll get a mech warrior style game or something at some point.

If you are on the fence about this stuff; pull that trigger and go for it. If you are still pretty skeptical; definitely try to find a friend or some way to try it out.

This. Everything is shit when it first comes around. I'll wait for now. I've tried a couple of the current VR tech and I'm not impressed yet.

Besides... what I really want is "Full Dive" VR but that's still a decent ways off. Hopefully before I'm not ancient lol.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they only sell kits of ram in 8, 16, 32, and 64 GB. Also, I don't think they sell 12 core CPU for desktops, servers they do, but not for desktops!

You're assuming I am running that kind of hardware through a desktop..Ya know nothing stops anyone from building their own server for shits and giggles. Having a private cloud rocks, ya should try it some time . Also having your own dedicated gaming server is fun as all hell as well.

No offense mate but you still haven't came up for an excuse for the 20 GB of ram. Also, servers don't need GPU's because they are all processing and or storing data. What you means is,.......

You have an I7 5960x (eight core with multi-threading = 16 threads), Two GTX Titian x's in sli, 32 BG of DDR4 ram, 1500 watt power supply, one 500 GB of PCIe SSD and two 1Tb SSD drive in raid 0 confiq. You also have the Phantaks Entoo Primo and a internal blu-ray drive for shit and giggles.

Total price= $5239

Because I don't know about you, but this is totally my build

I don't need to come up with an excuse for the 20 gigs of ram. Let's see two sticks of 8 gigs, and one of four.. and look I even have a slot for another eight for some reason. I mean am I not nobel prize laureate but 8x2+4 = 20 unless ya know the sum of 16+4 has changed recently. And also what in the name of all that is holy do you need 32 gigs of DDR4 for, you hosting some illegal Wow private server or something?

Because they only sell kits of of ram in single, duel, or quad channel, man. You can't take a duel channel and mix it with a single channel. Then you get an all fucked up configuration (seriously either it wont work right or not at all). I've tried this before on my mobo and it kept on flashing Mem-ok light on it then would take for ever to boot. installed a an actual quad channel ram kit and booted up like a dream, lol. Why not have 32 GB of ram? I can four different games in window mode at the same time and still have some ram left to watch a video with, or you know..... even work on a spread sheet lol. Or hell even having all of your ram slots filled looks BA. Nah..... I'm just f$$king with you I got 16Gb in my real PC, but I can still dream!!!!
