For $300-$400 which GPU should I buy for 1080p 60FPS gaming?

Question by William from United States | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Apr 13, 2016 at 11:21 pm CDT

I currently have a GTX 750 Ti, I'm looking to upgrade to be able to maximize graphics quality of The Division and Dark Souls 3, (Not currently looking at VR). By maximize I mean playability. I want the game to run at 1080P 60FPS at all times on the current 1x 23" Monitor I have. I'm also on a budget of around $300-$400. Should I wait to see what pascal will be priced around (I'm sure ridiculous) or should I pull the trigger on a R9 Fury or...? idk, thats why I'm asking. ahah Thanks!

Do I need a whole room for VR gaming, or could I use my study?

Question by Mac from United States | Answered by Anthony Garreffa | Gaming | Mar 19, 2016 at 12:45 pm CDT

I'm super interested in VR gaming on the PC - it seems to be all we hear about now.

I'm a big FPS gamer, I am totally into Battlefield 4. So, my question, well questions, relates to VR. Firstly, am I going to need a whole new dedicated room in my home for VR gaming or could I just game in VR in my study as I do now? I'm concerned about bumping into my desk and chairs etc.

The second part of the question, do I have to game in VR when standing up to gain the best experience? I mean, what if I just sat down on my chair as usual and gamed in VR? I'm a keyboard and mouse guy, and I think it would take a lot of adjustment or feel strange to game while standing up.

I'd love to hear your opinions here. I'm ready to pull the trigger on a new VR rig and VR equipment, but I want to know what you think first.
