It was an impulsive buy, because I don't have a gaming PC :(


Can anyone recommend me basic specs to build a gaming PC.

If you guys have experience gaming with Oculus Rift and now what specs would help that would be a plus. Also let me know if I should wait a few months for any new hardware releases or start building now... I have til July until I get the DK2

An Occulus version solely for Dungeon Keeper 2? Yes. Yes.

New parts aren't expected to come until the end of the year.

Also, you should establish a budget

Oculus

Occultist.

Don't ask why I always read the former as the latter.

But of course...how else would we summon our dark lord if not by a rift?

Didn't realize DK2 was officially announced. Have my DK1, but probably won't get it again untili consumer version.

Well maybe.

Probably.....

Exactly my point

Occults and Rifts just seem to go hand-and-hand.

As far as computer hardware, I don't think the Occulus Rift needs an expensive video card to push that many pixels. A regular quad core computer with a mid-range dedicated GPU should be fine, right?

At any rate, $800 should be more than enough. I know my i5 2500K/GTX 660 build will work.
