Just bought it and fired it up through Virtual Desktop…. Great experience so far in the first few mins of play… fun control options too… I'd recommend this just based on the first 15 mins of play.

What's the cheapest and best way to get into this other than the Quest 2?

A quest 2 is not able to run this game. It'll only work if you use a pc to run the game and just the quest 2 as a pc vr headset

I should have noted I have a PC with a 3080 and would be using that with whichever headset. I'm just looking for a Quest 2 alternative that is comparably priced with similar or better quality.

What makes the index controllers so much better, in your opinion?

I played through all of Alyx on a quest two and didn't feel like I missed anything. So you're comment comes if as typical Quest bashing
Index controllers are much better suited for this simply because you get full fingers tracking which you don't get in the oculus. It's also more precise but of course all of this is to be expected considering the controllers alone cost more than an entire quest setup.

Ultimately you aren't getting the definitive experience but you ain't missing out much either lol.

did you get a chance to play it on index controllers? the main advantage is how they hang over the hand and dont require clenched fists the whole time, the whole controller can tell if its being squeezed as well, so picking up and dropping stuff feels way more realistic. haptics are also better as a result. it overall is about how the controllers disappear

its like a 5% change its not huge but the quest controllers cant disappear at all in comparison. your hands are always clenching something for the most part.

Quote from SociableSeagull490 :
Do you have a link to a good article/video describing the ideal settings or can you provide your own? I tried tweaking with the settings. I have a dedicated router with only the Quest on it, it's on the 5ghz network, and the router is in the same room. My PC with a 2080 is wired to the router also. However I can't get a crisp resolution comparable to my G2 on some games, like Alyx. The only thing missing is that the router is not WiFi 6. Wondering if I'm being too optimistic here about the resolution it can achieve. Not to say I'm expecting g2 quality out of the Q2, but some games like alyx are very blurry in comparison, while other games are pretty close
It depends a lot on the router as well. I had a regular tp-link 5ghz router lying around that I tried to use as a dedicated device, it was just shitty, thats probably because some routers just cant push through more than 100mbps on the 5ghz band. My main router is a Linksys one with MIMO, 5ghz, beam forming etc,etc and a better processor and I can usually play the game stable at 180mbps on it. Granted it becomes choppy if anyone in the house starts streaming etc, so I just ask them to switch to the 2.4ghz band on the same router and it works perfectly. I also tried playing with link cable and dont see much difference in quality (its possible someone super picky can point out differences if you look hard enough), but the experience playing without wires is just so much worth it.
Get a good router rather than a link cable for the same price (70 bucks) and you wont regret it.

TLDR: Get a good dedicated router as nothing beats playing without wires. if you are buying a new one, just buy the wifi 6 ones

What is your budget? You can RUN it on just about anything, but if you want a decent experience I will make a suggestion but are you constrained by a budget or what?
