    The price of graphics cards are insane nowadays. I expect it's just a matter of time before the market becomes over saturated and they come back down much like memory did in the early 90's, but in the meantime that's what's keeping me from upgrading mine.

    That seems cool but I'll hold out for the headset. I want the full experience... also I am VERY offended that I was never notified of this

    Awesome! I wish I'd had a VR set up then. I don't now either, but my PC is at least now VR capable lol

    Oh, I didn't use VR. I'm not buying into it just yet for fear that as soon as I get a headset another will be released. It's such a rapidly growing market right now that headsets are just getting outdated each year or two.

    That's true, and part of the reason I haven't gotten one yet. I kind of just want to get a really cheap one and use that until the technology balances out
