My PC has been ready for an upgrade for a long time. Fact is at this point, I’m running 80% resources while idling and having difficulty running Terraria. I’ve known for some time that this time was coming. I’d planned to build a new rig a year ago or so, but then Pimax came along. I’m no fool, I suspected the hardware requirements might change, so I held off on building a new rig until the actual headsets were available.
Well, here we are, and it looks like the headsets are going out, and I find myself in a bit of a quandry. I am an 8Kx backer. It seems clear that even a 2080 Ti is not going to cut it.
Here’s what I’m thinking: build a new rig, with 1080 Ti. That’ll let me enjoy the 5K+ for the life of the loaner. Then, presumably a year or so down the line, once the 8kX is sent to me I can just swap out for a 3080 Ti (which presumably will be out by then, from all I’m hearing). Hopefully that will be enough to be able to do the 8Kx justice. This is not an ideal solution- it sounds like a pain in the butt and expensive to boot, but it’s the best I can come up with.
Any suggestions from you folks? Anyone else going down a similar path and figuring out their strategies? I’m socking money away for Cyber Monday, you’d best believe it.
