    Hey everyone,

    I'm always curious about other people's setup for VR. Do you have a dedicated room? Do you have a favourite chair? What's your rig? (pictures would be awesome if you care to share!)

    I'll go first. My VR hardware is the Gear VR with my S6, so it's mobile. I typically use it in my living room, but occasionally in our home office if my wife is watching TV in the living room.

    I always wipe down my screen with my wipe, and I have a Asus Nexus Player gamepad that I use with the Gear VR. When needed, I use the standard Samsung headphones that came with my S3 back in the day (I don't love the S6 style).

    Well, for a problem with the room spared for the VR setup right now I can only speak of the PC specs.

    I have the Oculus Rift CV1, it comes with the XBOX controller and the remote.
    The computer is an AMD FX 9590 8-core 5GHz
    an EVGA GeForce GTX 970 FTW ACX 2.0 4GB GDDR5
    Kingston HyperX Genesis 16GB Kit (2x8GB) 1866MHz DDR3
    SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 GB SATA 6.0

    Also a secondary Secondary Hybrid Hard Drive 4TB and other stuff, but with that I play everything in Ultra settings.

    My main problem here right now is the Internet speed of 175KB/s and less

    I currently live in shared housing so I just have a room to myself. I've thrown out the base to my kingsize bed so I can prop the mattress up against the wall for floor space. I just about pass the Vive's minimum required floor space for room scale mode. Tried last night for the first time.
    I have a major problem with rising damp at the moment so I might have to move sooner or later.

    As I posted before my current system build didn't come easy as I had major stress after what I determined to be mobo failures due to corsair's replacement of the Gtx H80i backplate being plastic. It had no definite stopping point when tightening the thumb screws and I broke a board or two. Luckily I had the old metal backplate still.

    Msi Z97 Gaming 5
    i7 4790k @4.5 OC(the most I'm comfortable with)
    Msi GTX 1070 gaming x(Sold Xbox one and 970 to pay for it only because Paypal offered me £70 off the inflated price)
    Corsair Vengeance Pro Series 16GB DDR3 2133Mhz
    EVGA SuperNova P2 850 W Platinum
    Samsung SSD 850 evo 250GB
    Razor Blackwidow keyboard
    MS wireless mouse(Looking to upgrade at some point if I can't win one)
    1tb hdd
    Phanteks Enthoo Pro M case
    BitFenix Alchemy 2.0 led white
    Various external hdd's

    Wasn't built all at once.

    I also have a laptop, but is too old to handle the Rift and a lot of external drives, because you know bad internet means you need to download your movies and your everything to watch it.

    The laptop can't handle VR but it is: Acer V3 571g
    Intel Core i7-3632QM 2.2GHz (6MB Cache)
    8 GB SDRAM
    240 GB SSD
    15.6-Inch Screen
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M 2GB
    Windows 10

    And I said, you plug the Rift and try to install the software and it doesn't recognize it.

    Sounds like a pretty beastly laptop though!
