The GTX9xx series plays the rift just as good as the 10xx series cards, I can attest to that personally with the GTX970s.

Here in the US $600.00 for the Rift, unfortunately in my case my motherboard took a crap 2 days after I bought the Rift so, another $700.00 bucks for board, ram and processor but don't feel sorry for me because the smile on my face is priceless.  You know, this is way cheaper then therapy. Very Happy

Ah HA! So you can no longer bust my balls for going with a 1060 instead of a 1080... Laughing

(but since I'm a "sensitive-new-age-guy-who-cares-too-much-what-other-people-think", I pulled the trigger on a new EVGA 1080 and will be picking it up in about 90 minutes. I'm hopeless.)

Having actually paid for therapy, I can attest Showtime speaks the truth. Smile

Just noticed the shop is now accepting orders for the rift adapters but bundling 'Oculus Rift Lens Inserts' small plastic spacers that may or may not be needed to get a good fit.... appears very reasonably priced.

I could be tempted...

Not strictly true, at least for me: on paper - and according to the Oculus system check tool - my last rig was capable of running the Rift (i5, GTX 970); however, when I tried to get a DK2 working on it a problem with the USB ports came up (yes, they were USB3) and a techy mate of mine spent an afternoon trying to get it to work with no joy, so in the end I decided on a new rig - the old one started life 5 years ago, so was starting to age, and I'm quite happy with that decision.

Maybe there are differences between the DK2 and the CV1 that caused my problem above (or something with my rig), but I thought I should share it just in case...

DON'T DO IT KoRn!!!!!

DON'T DO IT!!!!

I started this 12 day work trip last week with a layover in PDX. Show picked me up and we flew his OR around for about an hour or so.

One word...

HOLY FU*KING SHITE!!!!

(sorry...it's that cool)

We filmed each other flying with that funny looking contraption strapped to our heads, and I'll be cobbling together a short YouTube vid starring us later today (I have the day off in Tokyo).

Two things:

1) you will be burning the simpit in the fireplace later this winter,
2) if you have any stock in "NaturalPoint", you'll be dumping it faster than Rosie O'Donnel puking up a diet pill!

Be prepared to have your bank account several hundreds dollars lighter (I'll be stopping by Best Buy on my drive home on Sunday when I get back to the world).

cheers cheers cheers cheers

Thanks for the heads up Bball! I'll report back with the fate of my simpit lol
