VR and medium-powered flatscreen gaming build

by honestbleeps Posted on: 2/2/2022

Build Description

I built this machine to play VR games. I didn't have a top of the line budget, but wanted to get solid parts and be able to play VR games on it for at least a few years. So far, so good! It's working really well still. I also play Rocket League and a few other more basic games, but I'm not getting the latest AAA titles and pushing them to ultra, or anything.

Favorite Feature

I love that the 2070Super is still a good enough card to play games on with solid settings.
