Mark, I think you've misunderstood me.

I wasn't the least bit concerned with how little the guy was making. I was just quizzing/teasing you about using the word "much" in this context.

I would be interested in the "good" computer that will run VR and a game that also has to send data to your rig for $600
Just saying my last rig was a beast and built for VR and gaming and was close to twice that price.
I have a Rift VR head set, after I purchased it I found out my gaming laptop wasn't going to support it, they changed the requirements and I ended up buying a new PC.
Now part of the price was due to me not shopping around and picking one out of only three others..
The biggest price was for the Video card, that is going to be your biggest hit even if you build it yourself.
Good luck looking forward to seeing your rig when its working.

I got the rig with the best Video card at the time, the most ram and the quickest hard disk.
The VR glasses are good and I spend a lot of time in them. But I have nothing to compare them with.

Skyrim VR
Fallout 4 VR
All with a lot of mods. Never choked the computer or the goggles.

Looking forward to what you put together and see how it performs.

Running a 1070 video card and a amd 2700x, 32 gb of ram, nothing overclocked, using a cv1 rift. I am starting to see stuttering and overheating running Iracing with low and medium settings. 600 does seem to be a little on the low side for the pc and controller together.

yes the RTX stuff is good and i looked at it but i have used AMD Radeon stuff and just like it so i went with the RX 5600 XT and the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 this should be a strong gaming PC but surely not the best but more than i probably need

Don't set your hopes too high on shipping times. I have been experiencing unusual delays from places I buy from all the time and it doesn't seem to matter whether it is USPS, UPS or Fedex

Check this site for some ideas on wheels and pedals, has mid to insane prices. I currently use the Thrustmaster TS-PC base with the T3PA pedals upgraded with load cell. Would love to go with a direct drive wheel and hydraulic pedals. There are plenty of used pedals and wheels on IRacing forums if you decide to jump in with a lower set than upgrade to better. Depending where your price point is, Logitech, Thrustmaster, Fanatec, Direct Drive wheels in that order, , word is Thrustmaster and Fanatec are working on a direct drive wheel. As for pedals, definitely something with a load cell for the brake, makes it so much better than just a spring or cushion for resistance.

bonaduce i am doing DIY pedals i ordered some wilwood brake and clutch assembly and am using a drive by wire car throttle pedal so i am using stuff for a real car the steering wheel i have been looking at doing diy also by using a stepper motor and it will be all run by a Arduino uno . I can tell it had been a long time since i put a PC together as i was having a time with it running right as getting all the cables from the power supply run so they would even reach where they needed to plug in

Wow i got the pc going and the Odyssey plus vr i am amazed how good it is i have not got the setting perfect but i just watched some things and it was great but i will say that some things froze up as i think the graphics card might not be able to handle it or it could have been the internet connection as it is slow where i am
