Serious Sam VR
When I set up my VR system I was on a budget and when you add in the price of the Vive it’s not a cheap setup for something to play games on! But for me, VR is more than just games it’s an experience. It’s something I just had to have. I have worked in tech all my life. I have built some of the fastest gaming PCs in the world over the years, so tech like the HTC Vive is just something I could not miss out on. Then I had the dilemma. My budget didn’t allow me to get the fastest GPU on the market. So for me it was a no brainer. I went with an AMD FX-8370 CPU and an AMD Radeon RX-480 GPU. Why not a GeForce GTX-1070? Well for me at the time it was an extra $200 I just couldn’t justify. So I was stuck with my budget VR PC but has that turned out to be a bad thing? Let’s find out!
