I have to say this Asus Dual is one of the best looking GPUs I've seen yet.

Playing my oculus Quest and never realized that gaming was meant to make you feel like you've been to a gym, my 52 year old body isn't use to exercise.

My only consideration is whether to buy games for the quest or steam rift s considering if I buy for the quest they will forever be tied to that where as steam and rift games are on the pc so any VR system will be able to play them

Atm it will be the Quest, but games for that are APK which means they'll only work on the quest, if once the battery stops charging the quest will be a wired I'll still be able to use it, but if I upgrade at some point those games are lost where as pcvr games will work on any HMD

Personally I'd go with the long term strategy then instead of locking yourself into the Quest

Same here, doesn't make any sense to lock into anything with how young VR is. It's sure to change a lot in the next few years.

I think my plan is to look on Oculus if it's crossplay then get the game there, otherwise just see where it's cheapest

Now I looked into it, it's amazing what stuff is available if you have space and money, I found this site interesting For exercise ideas, VZfit do a exercise bike attachment and then there's the haptic suits and gloves

Been beyond sick since noon of Tuesday. Come online first time Friday night and the news section was beyond blowing up. Damn I missed a lot of stuff in 3 days. Still sick but at least I can get somewhat excited reading all the AMD stuff.

Sorry to hear that you have been unwell. I hope that you are back to 100% soon.
