Hi all -
Looking to get some recommendations from folks who might know more about the gaming/VR side of things.
Location: US (close to a MicroCenter, as well)
No peripherals needed (already good on monitor, mouse, keyboard)
OS: Windows 10 Pro
I prefer an ATX Mid Tower size case.
Broad strokes, I'm trying to find out if I should go Intel or AMD for CPU and trying to determine what level of GPU I need. My previous builds have always been Intel, but I've heard a lot about the new Ryzens being very good value for the money. Is one better than the other for VR?
The goal would be to get an RTX 2070 or 2080 for GPU. I'd love to hear if the 2080 is worth the extra $ for VR future-proofing.
For RAM, I'm thinking 16GB is enough? My last build was for a video editing machine, so I went with 32GB for that one, but didn't know if you get diminishing returns past 16GB with gaming/VR.
Any suggestions are welcome!
