May I ask why you chose the 2600x over the 3300x? Availability ?

I got similar simulated results bounding them together with more power on tap, 6 core vs 4... (I do video editing).

I order all my gear from the same company, very competent techies.

We looked at diverse solutions based on the RX700 XT graphic card, they suggested trying to obtain the best bound possible which is the reason, the Ryzen 3 remain an option, it will depend on budget.

While the 5700XT is a fairly decent GPU for the money, it's not especially great in handling DCS in VR. It's fine at many other VR specific titles, but I can't get anywhere near the same pixel density as my 1080ti in DCS. This could be a matter of the lower available VRAM, which why I opted for the the 1080ti in the first place. I have a Rift CV1 (Kids) and S. I bought the 5700XT for my kids' computer, and there are things I like about it that gives me hope for their next gen. If it outperforms the 2080ti, has more than 8GB of VRAM, and is reasonably priced, I'm in.

I'm curious to know what were your other devices, because the whole point here is bounding.

A new 1080ti i is <> £270 more expensive than the 5700XT, more than a Ryzen 52600X six core, meaning, with my budget, i'll have to keep this processor, a Ryzen 3 3200G.

I have a solution though, since I want Max res for VR, Selling this GPU (5500 XT, new) to CEX computer Exchange and buy one of their 1080ti, they are guaranteed 24 month.

The Ryzen 3 3200G is a very strong processor, I can easily pull an extra 10% out of it, I have a good Artic Freezer cooler for it.

Average bottleneck percentage: 7.14% reduced to 4.89% at 110% CPU setting, good enough at 2150P/4K with little loss for lack of good bounding, then I can upgrade the processor later.


My VR kit is a brand new Rift CV1 purchased at low price on EBAY, Power Unit is a Corsair 750w...

I'm currently on the the Ryzen 9 3900X with 32GB of DDR4-3600 with the Rift S, but started on with a CV1 & R7 2700 that eventually became my kids' Rig. I've had the 1080ti for 3 years now and I eventually bought the 5700XT to replace the R9 Fury for better VR performance in their PC. I occasionally steal it for other reasons, but I haven't specifically tested the combination of the CV1 and the 5700XT in DCS, but some research indicated there is a difference in the video processing offloaded to the GPU between the CV1 and the Rift S. The inside-out tracking is probably more intensive. It might be a non-issue with the CV1, but the S is far less smooth in DCS on the 5700XT.

Understood.

For as long as my CPU and GPU are bounded at the highest resolution it's OK, I wasn't considering an Nvidia card but my knowledge of VR is limited so I didn't have a clue.


I have a good motherboard, it supports a lot of Ryzen CPUs and 32 GB DDR4 3200 RAM, still can upgrade later.


I started to set my Rift up with this combo, only one sensor instaled, just to make sure I'll learn a little about it, it looks pixelated and need to be set up at higher resolutions, the 5500 obviously doesn't take it but tracking and viewing is smooth.


I decided to go VR because I just can't track a target visually with PoV hats and zoom.


I can go with the 1080ti because the low cost solutions exists and I have some headroom for overclocking my CPU.


Thanks for the tip anyway!
