Any other of you guys in the same boat?
Have until April to upgrade; AMD or Intel?
Intel i5-4590 is minimum spec.
I'd recommend an i5-4690K.
There is no AMD CPU on the market that will meet their requirements because of its weak IPC. Not bashing AMD as they are good at the value segment.
I just ran it and it said that my PC doesn't meet the requirements but there is an error in their software. Specifically it used my Integrated Intel HD Graphics as the value for graphics card and didn't detect that I have a GTX 980 Ti on my system.
Its all kinds of wrong but sure.
my 770 isnt good enough, my FX9370 isnt good enough and I apparently don't have enough usb3s even though I do. Oh well. Thanks anons
The only thing that doesn't fly is my GTX 760, is it even worth changing it?
I'm pretty sure you can wait until next gen cards comes out. Consider a mild overclock on your 760 if you haven't. It performs decent with almost everything 1080p 60fps.
I don't think you'll be buying a Rift, or are you?
It all depends on what games I want to play with it, as for right now I can only imagine playing Mirrors Edge.
I don't want to try overclocking my 760 since I'm afraid to overheat it ;-;
You can use the factory voltage and apply a mild overclock, it doesn't produce higher heat output, it would be exactly the same as the factory settings. Push it too hard without increasing the voltage and it will create artifacts. Then again, it's up to you.
Just missing the ports and my gpu is a bit weak, but I think it'll probably do the job.
By the way this test is shit and doesn't actually test shit. It just picks parts from some arbitrary shitty list.
If you really want to do an actual test for it, go to Steam and download the 3DMark benchmark tool. It's paid, but you can download a demo of it. Then run the Firestrike benchmark and wait for it to finish. Then it will display results online. Palmer said anything above 9000 is fine for the Rift.

* Please note that we focus on single-core performance CPUs, therefore not every i5 and i7 card will meet Rift's recommended system specifications.

Can attest to that. I turned hyperthreading On on my i7 3770 and the score on the 3DMark test was 7500. Turned it off and it went to 9500+, which puts my system slightly ahead of what is recomended for the rift (i7 3770 + gtx 970)
Oculus tells me to go fuck myself, Nvidia says its ok (just need 390 driver)
I'm probably getting a Vive instead though.
I have one of those cards and it doesn't like it.
The .exe sends all your info back to OR servers so they can see how many people can't run their stupid product
I'm buying either a Vive or morpheus, fuck these kike faggots.
>console ports have the same level of optimization as their console counterparts
Name a current gen game that doesn't run as well or better on a 750Ti as it does on console.
GTA V and BF4 literally run at a more stable 30 FPS with slightly nicer settings and real 1080P
Check for updates :^)
here is my potato
Upgraded processor/motherboard/ram literally yesterday, so those are fine. 960 doesn't cut it but if I really want one later I'll upgrade, since it's fine for me right now.
If your system cant handle the oculus rift, you're a fucking pleb.
