  • Would this do VR with quest? It’s perfect for my nephew if it does.

      VR will probably still work, but likely a lag fest and won't be an enjoyable experience. I'd say for a good experience, you'd want 1070/1660 level of performance and above.

    • Depends on the game but for HL: Alyx which is one of the more recent VR games — it's going to be a stuttery nauseating experience.

      • Thanks guys. I found this https://www.pcgamebenchmark.com/your-quest-2-system-requirem... googling whilst I waited for someone to let me know. But run vs run well is a good point.

        • To play Your Quest 2 you will need a minimum CPU equivalent to an Intel Pentium 4 3.00GHz. Provided that you have at least an NVIDIA GeForce 510 graphics card you can play the game. In terms of game file size, you will need at least 200 MB of free disk space available. The minimum memory requirement for Your Quest 2 is 1 GB of RAM installed in your computer.

          Ummmm. What.

          That website is rubbish and I wouldn't use it as a guide for anything. They're simply scraping data from other sites and there's no manual review process to make sure the information is accurate.

        • Out of all the laptops I've tried, the 1660ti had the best bang for your buck in terms of performance.. an easy 70+ fps on medium in HL:Alyx using Quest 1… On the Quest 2, had to lower the settings a bit to get the same performance.

    • I wouldn't bother with anything less than a 1060/2060 grade card, it's just not worth it

    • Very good points, looks like the $1500 i5 3060ti from techfast would be the way to go, but he will have to mow the lawn a few more times to get that one.

    • I did not have much experience with too many desktop VR title but so far….

      • Phasmophobia works seamlessly with this system in VR via Virtual Desktop.

      • No Man's Sky is too laggy to be playable.

      • Vacation Simulator also works seamlessly.

      • VR Chat is a bit odd because in some chartrooms it's smooth but others can be really laggy.

      The only thing different in my system is that my CPU is Ryzen 1600x which is 6 cores 12 threads while the 3100 is 4 cores 8 threads. I also bought a cheap $35 8gb ram stick because 8gb is nowhere near enough nowadays.

  • will this run Among Us?

  • Will this run Qbasic - Nibbles game?

  • Budget Gaming = "great for back to school"

    Love it!

    • You can't play fortnite until you've finished your homework might be a good way to get someone to do their homework…

  • I think $599 is still above my budget lol

  • 16gb ram seems to be the standard, if you equip with that then you require upgrading motherboard. You may also consider upgrading SSD to nvme and that takes you to around $1000. my god…

  • Lol "gaming" this dosnt even have a spinner in it. That 250gb SDD won't even fit the new COD + an OS. I guess if you are happy to only play games from 5 + years ago. I'd love to see this tackle a recent AAA game.

  • Now I have to deal with all the (mod: edited) that have bought this as a 'gaming computer' disconnecting mid game cause of 100% RAM and CPU usage!!

  • Sorry guys I am noob, what is required to make this is a VR gaming PC? A good video card? If yes then which one?

    • You need MONEY !!! $$$ $$$ $$$
      And buy something better.

      • Yes, no shit sir, I was hoping to know which card and what setup rather than a lazy answer of "You need money!!! $$$$$$$"

        • They literally talked about it in the first comment

        • Depends what VR headset and what sort of performance you expect. Though I would say there is not much point in turning this into a VR gaming PC, the baseline is just not appropriate. more memory, better graphics, probably bump in CPU too

    • You would require at the minimum a 1070 and a mid to upper tier cpu.

      Do not buy this if you want to VR. :)

    • hi, if you can find the "desktop computer" tab near the top of this page (the tab is not always available on other pages) you can see a list of recent deals. About half way down said page there is a system from TechFast for 1398 with a 3060ti card that would cover most virtual reality system requirements, although I understand that computer is over twice the price of the present listing

  • I have a mega old build from circa 2013. I upgraded it my gpu to gtx2070 in late 2018.

    What’s a good budget build that I can sub my 2070 into? Looking to outlay 1k max shipped.

  • You can't overclock the processor with the a320 motherboard

  • I'm a fan of mini case builds

    Can someone tell if this is a good deal compared to this dell? The $367 discount is tempting

    https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/dell-desktop-computers/inspi...

    • If you think the dell pre-built is great value for money, then just chuck in a low powered GPU, and your good to go. Personally, I wouldn't go for OEM prebuilt because of the motherboard and PSU they use (Power supplies in prebuilt most often don't have PCI-E power cables, and the motherboard is just limited by the OEM to what you get), maybe try to find another company such as tech fast (or buy from them) who build PC's from parts so you have an upgrade path in the future (still, they tend to use cheaper PSU and budget motherboards).
