    Just a warning for anyone who gets an Oculus Rift VR headset and has a cat. Buy some split loom cable conduit to protect the cable. The cable sheath is weak as all buggery and it took one bite from my cat to destroy it.

    I thought to myself, "that's alright. I've done plenty of cable stripping and crimping. This'll be easy"

    The cable has about 100 individually shielded cables, each about 0.5mm wide. One cat bite managed to destroy most of those cables. Repairing it would cost me at least 3 hours of time, lots of cable and shrink wrap, some soldier, a magnifying glass, and then I couldn't support it enough to stop it breaking again from movement.

    And Oculus are the only ones who sell the cable. It costs $80.

    Wait .. what?!?! What specs mate and who'se building it for you!

    Or is that only to control the sim (not to game on)?

    Slightly concerned seeing that Sapphire card, as they are an AMD only house.. and ... I've got a longstanding hatred of AMD/gAyTI graphics cards (because every single one I've owned - and had replaced under warranty) has died an artifact filled death.

    nVidia suck. AMD are kings....

    Kidding. I have an nVidia GTX 1080 and it rocks. Problem is that I also have a 30 inch 4k monitor with Freesync which only works with AMD cards. My other machine has my old AMD R9 390 in it which is an excellent card.

    Someone needs to tell their kid to clean up their room... that's a pigsty :D

    Noted Gigabyte motherboard on the left, that'll be a GA-A320MA-M2 ... which means it's an AMD Ryzen/Athlon build.
