What are you talking about? That cpu/ram/gfx card combo is perfectly fine for VR - yes, not on ultra settings maybe but most competent Vr experiences are optimised more than the usual non-vr ports.

Essentially £600 for that pc, not too bad.

This is a nice deal - perfect base for further upgrades later and no hassle of building a PC (along with all the liabilities).

Wrong. I can run every VR game I've tried so far on high if not highest settings:

i5 7600k
1060 6GB
8GB memory

You won't be maxing out a lot of games with a 1060 but will be able to play any VR game, I would pay the extra for a 1070.
1060 is basically the same spec as a 980 so can max nearly everything at 1080 and max most vr games (which tend to be pretty basic graphically) you can also play nearly everything at 2k on high to max. 1070 is certainly better but then again so is a 1080ti, where do you stop?

1060 is nowhere near 980... 970 maybe but not 980

1060 is nowhere near 980... 970 maybe but not 980


got any links to back that up? from what I've seen the 1060 is marginally behind the 980 (a few fps/% in benchmarks) but always above the 970

for example see here where they try to see whats better an overclocked 980 or 1060. You can see both before and after the OC they are near identical

I have a GTX970 myself and have been enjoying VR without any real issues, so that 1060 should be fine, not like VR games are pushing 4k textures anf resolutions.........YET!.

I do have a icore 7 though so that might be helping somewhat.

Think you're getting confused between a 980 and the 980Ti
the specs of the PC are near enough the same as mine i got an Intel i5 7500 same gpu no idea what PSU it has 16gb RAM but I also got a 240gb SSD. total is around £760 so this isn't too bad

Whatever you and the rest of the PC peasants in this thread think you … Whatever you and the rest of the PC peasants in this thread think you know, you don't. A 980 was sub-par for VR, and a 1060 which is LESS well performing than a 980 is even lower par.Just because your poverty spec PC's can run a VR game does not make it enjoyable. You need supersampling at a high level to enjoy the experience, that is unless you are sporting cataracts and double lensed glasses in which case you need to stop arguing the toss over graphics with videophiles.



Please noone listen to this nonsense. Supersampling is nice and I can push around 2 on my 1080ti, however, it's nowhere near essential and does not make as drastic a difference at your suggesting.

A 1060 will run almost all games at standard setting. My only concern would be whether it could handle fallout 4vr.

I was researching the 1060 a couple of months ago and the difference between the 970 & the 1060 is slight, infact, I noted some charts, where under specific conditions, with specific titles, the 970 nudged ahead (not often, but yeah) ... so? I see the 1060 as a minor upgrade to the 970 and a way for Nvidia to cater for that end of the market, as most of us can't afford to drop 500 notes on a GPU ... being the peasants that we are.

Nvidia themselves tout the 1060 as a direct replacement for the 980 and there's only a hair's breadth between them when measured. Sometimes the 980 wins out, sometimes it's the 1060, but they are basically at parity.

The 1070 is a better card, of course, but the 1060 is more than enough for VR, moreso now that devs are learning how to optimise (to the point where Nvidia have *reduced* their minimum VR spec from a 970 to a 960).

No one is disputing games will look better on a titan xp over a 1060, but current VR titles on a 1060 work well, The experience is extremely enjoyable.

90FPS in the 5/6 games I've tested, occasional dip to mid 80s haven't noticed the dips so far after around 10hours game play

Doesn't seem that great of a spec for the price.

You're paying quite a premium for today's inflated GPU prices and convenience of prebuilt.

Bad time to be building a new pc for vr.

That's where you've probably wrong, I reckon the PC was this price (e.g. a little pricey) before the spike - prebuilds seem relatively unaffected from what I can gather. It's still pricey, but if you're looking at this kind of spec right now its probably cheaper than you could build (depending on the Mobo used/RAM used obviously). Win 10 already installed is a nice touch for those that want something that will just work too.
From someone who upgraded from a 970 to a 1080 (after hearing comments like the above) I can say the difference was slight at the most for VR.

Yes I could use super sampling games which produced a slightly higher fidelity but trust me it wasn't worth the upgrade, not for VR anyway.

Basically a 970/1060 are more than sufficient and provides an almost identical experience. It was flawless for me and regret wasting money on such a pointless upgrade, at least none VR games look better



It's a good price for the system + VR gear if you are into that.

One thing I would check before buying is some reviews of the PSU and who the OEM is. Last thing you want in an expensive PC is a crap power supply. Perhaps ask OCUK to put a better one in for you for a cost.
Looks like an ok price nothing amazing?

What a load of tosh.

Super sampling makes it look marginally better but it's very minimal. It doesn't impact the experience whatsoever.

Had both a 970 and 1080 so speak from experience. Lol what a troll

By the very fact you are promoting a 1060 for anything, let alone VR, makes your points of view completely redundant when it comes to graphical fidelity.

Take a step back boys. Your patter is akin to console kids defending their product as a viable competitor to PCs. Step it up.

Anything designed for VR from the ground up is polygon hell. Any games retrospectively adjusted to work with VR is stutter hell without a decent card. Go play nvidia funhouse to see if your card is worthy. If its left wanting, good luck with Fallout VR when it's out.
1060 or higher is the recommended GPU for Rift.
Pretty terrible pc
i5-7400 and 8GB RAM, in case anyone is misreading that it has 16GB

Yeah my gtx 1080ti really struggles with fun house.

Clearly from your comments your rocking a TNT Riva. It's like when blokes boast about how well endowed they are when they are packing a tiddler.

Now crawl back under your bridge little troll.

He knows how to go WHAAAAA WHAAAAAA WHAAAAAA
Had a 970 when the Cv1 was first released last year, it was ok but not brilliant. Upgraded to a 1070, was a big upgrade but still couldn't play decent games on the highest settings. Just bought a 1080ti and i think it's the sweet spot for what's to come.
Werent these guys banned forever
It all went a little bit twilight zone after post #35.

Not worth mentioning the multiple accounts spouting the same bile, but the fact stands - 1060 is **** for VR. Get over it, girls.
