  1. You guys with a 1080/1070 dont find you have to completely lower your settings and disable anti aliasing?
  2. So I have a gtx 1080. And it runs VR. But it absolutely chugs. With me having to crank down the graphics quality to minimum to get smooth fps. Which is not a pleasant experience. The rest of my machine is pretty solid. But I feel like my gpu is letting me down. The problem is all the 3080/3090 gpus are basically out of stock/marked up to hell.
  3. Yeah that works. the VR is still laggy though. Guess i gotta wait until bitcoin miners swap to something other than gaming cards.
  4. Yeah i'm not rich enough to play video games lol. its official
  5. So long story short I've had a desire to upgrade my flight setup. And I want a really nice flight stick with one of those extension rods, for precision flying. I looked at the warthog hotas. And I cant find one for less than $800. Which is just for the base unit. That's not the extension rod accessory. So I thought scratch that, that's nearly a months rent. So i looked at virpirl controllers, and they are alot cheaper. Like 400 out the door. But they are completely out of stock, and backordered. So scratch that too. So I w
  6. Finally talked myself into upgrading flight sticks. I've gold an older version of this guy. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/thrustmaster-t-flight-hotas-4-for-playstation-4/6291616.p?skuId=6291616&ref=212&loc=1&extStoreId=561&ref=212&loc=1&gclsrc=aw.ds&ds_rl=1268661&ds_rl=1269132&gclid=Cj0KCQiAsbrxBRDpARIsAAnnz_Ou-hZ6QCgmsz4dX9rcOqG9MyC2f9p5F5HEPy9U3JA6ZfIrlbI3FrgaAkSlEALw_wcB It's pretty decent its bare bones not alot of functionality, couple dead buttons. I recently made the transition to VR and I need a good quality stick to go with it. Something
  7. So I'm getting back into the game and without a doubt my favourite module is the mig 21. It's got a great blend of technology and primitivism. I'm looking for a squadron which specializes on the mig, or optionally the f5. I am also looking for a squadron that has instructors, as I am pretty garbage in a dogfight. I can take off land and navigate fairly well on my own. But when it comes to an actual fight. I honestly need some training. My time zone is eastern standard time. I'm available most weekends or weekdays after 6pm est
  8. Seen alot of options on the market recently. I was considering the rift-S for which starts at a relatively low $500 but there is also the HTC vive, and the Index for $1000 each: This is quite a price difference, what reasoning is behind the vive/index being double the price of the rift-s?
  9. Yeah I agree completely with your conclusion. But slightly bummed out because this is the same conclusion I came to a few years ago
  10. Chairs are optional, vr headsets are not
  11. Yeah, that's why I was going to use part of it to buy a new gaming/flight chair. But now I here these guys talking about how the dcs engine doesn't support VR well and it's kinda turning me off
  12. What your describing sounds like an issue with RAM, with sudden pop-in lag like that. Also I have been aware most people have to turn graphics settings to medium when playing in VR to maintain teady frames. The rest of my rig is pretty solid, I've got 32 gigs of ram and an I-9990k cpu. My main bottleneck is the 1070. So I feel confident if I upgraded that I would be solid, just not sure if I can justify spending another 2 grand to make my setup run VR. When it's already pretty hot for standard HD gaming
  13. I wouldn't mind doing the 2080, but what's a good budget mid range headset then? I was under the impression the Vive was the gold standard
  14. Can you run VR with a 1070?
