First post for me: If you go with regular price for the Oculus Rift, it puts the cost of this computer at $529 (Regular price $799).
I'm thinking of getting this, adding an SSD and some Ram. The 1600 is a 6 core processor, so should still be good for a while.

I got this last black Friday for $750 with a free Mixed Reality VR headset.




Pretty decent deal imo but the 580 is only 4gb of GPU. CPU is good though and you can oc it out of the box.

I was on the line for a VR-ready PC for my oldest, who finally got his GED... I have a Lenovo Explorer I already bought for him (I also have an Acer MR headset, but my younger son has borrowed that for now).

Anyway... as a developer, the Oculus Rift would be nice to have, and my birthday was coming up anyway. I'll give him this PC and the Lenovo set and he'll probably be very happy with it.

Will then 580 run the oculus with higher graphic games? Does the oculus have better resolution than the give? I own the vive and don't like seeing all the small pixels. I am currently building another computer....not high end...and currently have the case, ssd, psu, and the cpu cooler. Thinking about buying this and upgrading the graphics card if need be and keeping the ram if it's good. I'll sell the motherboard and case. I like the cpu and might keep the hard drive. Oh and I will also keep the oculus if it has better resolution than vive. What do you guys think? Too much work? Should I just keep buying individual parts as I have been? I still need ryzen 5 2600, 8gb rx580 and mother board to finish my budget pc.

I kind of feel like seeing pixels is just an unfortunate stage of VR progress we are currently in. I have used the Oculus Dev kit, the Oculus Go, the Ocukus Rift and the HTC Vive. Technically you can see pixels on all of them. I think this is due to our eyes being so close to a screen displaying barely above 1080p resolution. I think in the next iteration headsets as we get closer to 4k or 8k it will definitely get more lifelike and non pixelated.

I was using a 1070 gpu.
If you're using a weak GPU then Oculus rift and a 580 could potentially make things somewhat better, as Oculus has asynchronous Time Warp and puts less demand on hardware.

Sounds like it's just current limitations then. I think the Vive Pro gives a somewhat resolution boost.

AMD's former lead GPU manager said 16K is needed for "retina" quality VR, due to how close the screens are to the eye. He also said it needs to be 120 FPS.

Goodness! That's going to be awesome to see, but those hardware requirements are going to be insane!
