Oculus Rift and Touch Combo on Sale
« on: July 11, 2017, 03:47:23 pm »
$399.95
https://www.oculus.com/rift/

I read over at IRacing Forums the following... "After doing some research it appears it's simply to get inventory moving, no concerns about coming "updates" "
And here is a link that might be interesting to read... https://www.roadtovr.com/oculus-rift-cv1-superseded-new-version-least-two-years-rift-2-cv2/

I went ahead and bought one from Amazon.  Been wanting one for a while and I have been waiting for the price to go down.

Surely they don't allow us to get it for that prize in Finland :p
In order to win you need to be willing to roll the dice.

They need to drop the price around tax time. That is when I will have money to spend. So.. Far... Away.... But want now.

It will be interesting to see if the price drop will allow the Rift to catch up to the Vive's adoption rate. Even at half the price the Vive is still more attractive to me than the Rift.

Will need to check it once I get home. Not sure if my gtx 970 would be up to the job either...No extra cash to buy a new gpu atm.

I beilieve the GTX 970 is the lowest Card allowed by Oculus to have a smooth VR experience. It s the same level of card as my R9 290.

I hope that card works ok, that's what I have too  :)

Actually I think the minimum GPU is the GTX 960.  But I don't know what they mean by "Alternative Graphics Card" in this link https://support.oculus.com/help/oculus/170128916778795/

I ran the compatibility tool and it said my system was ok.
