This is the way it is because of hype. The hype brings everyone from both ends. Does hype do us a damn bit a good?

Yeah it's all about this dreamed future of mobile that has a very good chance of not happening like they and other predict. This is what you get when the market is based on Free with micro-trans and advertising.

As for on the PC, doesn't matter to me, don't need them.

Well good news for everyone, plenty of race games to choose from now and more coming. Not like this is a big need for us.

Best NFS game was Porsche Unleashed, but Hot Pursuit was very fun. It was also the last NFS game I ever bought. By the looks of things, that isn't about to change.

Which was one you bought that you didn't like?

I made that mistake in the past and paid dearly for it.. and for the minor expense of getting a mid-grade PSU, it is a lot more comforting knowing that I have a stable and reliable power supply in my rig.

Mid-grade, sounds about right, but what is that and those can still be found cheap. Yes there are really cheap PSU's but those may have the watts, probably not, but they won't have the connectors. Today driving a newer GPU, you are probably already into mid-grade by default and those can be found from time to time at $35, most of the time easily found at $50.

Cheaper PSUs don't last as along, and have more voltage regulation issues.

I don't necessarily agree with this. The systems I have run 24/7, 3 of 4 do go into sleep mode. But most run months without a reboot as well. To me it seems how clean is the power coming into your psu, and not so much as a sine level, but just spikes in power outages and re-attempts to get power back up. That is where a ups takes care of that issue and does clean the power to the psu, cheap or expensive.

Think perhaps a Bose or Monster Cable thing is going on here.

I bought my PSU for 60 bucks with a 10 dollar mail in rebate at Microcenter. It's 750w that is more than capable of my system as long as I don't go SLI. The PSU itself hasn't had great reviews (Corsair Bronze) but it's been a champ so far so I can't say anything bad about it.

What I've found more important than a better PSU, yes granted you have to have a strong enough one to handle your HW, but those specs have been coming down as GPU and CPU are more efficient. Having a UPS setup to me has finally solved the attack on PSU's when power goes out and tries to restart several times real quick again, harsh on electronics, I've seen cheap and expensive ones fail here. You can also see the draw of your system with a ups under load and as mentioned single PSU well under 500, that said you can get 750's (shopping) in the price range I stated.

A PSU may be more efficient, maybe. It will not give you 1 more FPS. The trick for me today is watts and connectors, rails are nice to and usually can get it all $50 or less.

Oh yeah, the age of VR is here! L U L Z!

Other than them muddying the water for no good reason. I think we've assumed a decent pc is needed to play high end games. I have to assume the game still matters on the specs you have to have. Otherwise how is the mobile VR capable of 1440p?

Uh I doubt he's talking about including the price of a monitor with a new pc, as most people already have one or hook it up to an existing HDTV.

Also.. $35 PSU? I'm sorry for anyone whom would ever think that is a viable option to put into a machine you're spending $500+ on.

Yeah, well it runs gaming 4 pc's of mine over here for years. If you want to splurge go to $50. It doesn't need a +$100 psu I can assure you.

What's that $325 gpu that can run games at 95 fps, or at least a steady fps well beyond 75 ?

We're using their recommended vc of a 970, which is $325.

I thought they said a couple weeks ago that one would need a GTX 970 to run it? That's $350 of the budget gone.

I find it hard to believe that anyone could build a full PC, including monitor, KB/M, and so on for $1500 and include a Oculus Rift. Maybe if they buy a piece of junk CPU and get the crapiest components. I smell bullshit.

I suppose that a person may not need a monitor if the RIFT can be used for Windows and such. Can anyone chime in on this? I wouldn't want to use the Rift for day to day desktop tasks.

CPU: $300
RAM: $100
Motherboard: $130
PSU: $100
GPU: $350
Case: $100
HDD: $80
Mouse: $50
Keyboard: $10
Monitor: $200

Total: $1420

Sure, a bit more could be scraped off but it would be a basic system even at these prices.

You can easily cut those prices down, here:

CPU: i5 $200
RAM: $60 for 8 gigs
Motherboard: $35
PSU: $35
GPU: $325
Case: $40
HDD: $80
------------
Mouse: $20
Keyboard: $10
Monitor: $100

Total Above Line: $775
Total everything: $905

Oculus doesn't need a monitor and you probably already have one.
K/M you probably already have one.

The system with the prices I mention will run games fine and dandy, you don't have to have expensive mb's and psu's.

That said, I don't know why they have to mention it like this, bundling it together. We have the pc, now what is your product cost? Thank you.

The price of the Witcher isn't described as $760, since you'll need a $700 pc to run it.

Not that I care... but did you even read the article? So she stated her opinion and it sounds dead on from what I know of the country. They pirate and reverse engineer everything. They have more rip off products than any other country yet we still do most of our business with them?

We do because they can make the qty needed at the price needed and as an extra bonus it keeps wages lower in the US.

Fuck it, I'm getting a PS4.
Or at least until AMD releases something on their end, competition supposed to lower prices and all that.

You could buy a card for $150 and get a PS4 equiv.

The next gen of vc I'm waiting for is the one that marries up with VR.

Don't worry about me, everyone has me on ignore like you directed them to years ago, right? RIGHT?

I just find it interesting you are a lib, you think things like GTA are fine, but this game, this is the one that crosses the line and censorship should kick in.

No matter what happens here, it isn't real, that is all that has to be factored in. Rate it, fine.

Will be interesting to see how many sites actually review it. I'm guessing many of them won't.

Finger's crossed for a Christian Gamer Review. Hope Mack does one to.

LOL to mass murder game, like almost all games I play are that and they say I'm the good guy doing so. At least this game knows how to call a spade properly.

Last but not least, this isn't real, it's a game.

A sortable list, with text and proper categorized tagging, context sensitive highlighting, and proper dependency links. An Inventory where you have to hover over everything to see what it is, is TOTAL SHIT. ^^

There isn't one that will satisfy all. There are plenty of people that like icon grids vs lists.

Why does every new game that comes out think we want to dig through list of inventory items (that are pages long),

Because they feel it works better that way with a controller. As much as they want to support the PC, they really like for us all to move to controllers. But that has to be one of the top reasons why people game on a PC. I say move consoles over to k/m!!!
