PC upgrade for VR

    I want to upgrade my PC to be able to enjoy Assetto Corsa Competizione in VR. My current specs are the following;

    - GTX 1060 6gb
    - i7-4790 @3.6 ghz
    - 16 gb of ram
    - MSI Z97 PC Mate motherboard

    I'm thinking about purchasing a new GPU since VR is very demanding. My budget Is about 500$, maybe a bit more if it's necessary. I'm wondering if I will suffer bottle neck if I'm only upgrading the GPU. I think I already have the best CPU my motherboard can support. I'm looking for some advice.

    Thanks in advance!

  3. Hi mate,
    sadly it's hard to give you any useful advice by looking at your current hardware and available budget. Also your CPU is not the fastest one for the old FCLGA1150 socket but an upgrade is not worth the money.
    I just want to share my experiences with ACC hardware'wise at a monitor.
    The game is very demanding

    I've tried it with I5-4670K@4GHz and GTX 1070 and run in heavy trouble as far as I added AI's or join multiplayer. It's simply not smooth and enjoyable. Heavily CPU bottlenecked.
    It was alot better after the change to I7-4790K@4.4GHz but my mainboard died.
    So I've had to upgrade my system. Mainboard, RAM, CPU, CPU cooler for alot of money.

    After changing half of my system my CPU is chilling around and now my GPU is the limiting factor :p

    So I don't think just the GPU upgrade will make you happy. Especially for a VR built.

    Thanks for your answer After_Midnight. Maybe the better plan is to upgrade my motherboard and CPU first and upgrade the GPU latter. My main problem right now is when I play online, so maybe it's CPU related. When hotlaping I can get good FPS with the proper graphic setting. The image is not very clear, but it's acceptable. There's also the option to build a new PC but thats way more expensive.
  5. You're welcome :)

    It sounds like you're CPU bottlenecked because it suits my experiences with the I5/I7
    System load with the I7-4790k@4.4GHz (right side HTT on / left side HTT on):

    Maybe you can share a screenshot of your current system load while playing.

    If possible I'd go this way. Maybe a complete new PC will be less expensive than an upgrade of mainboard, RAM, CPU and GPU.

    But please always keep in mind even users of high end systems are complaining about the look and performance of ACC.

    How can I display system load like on your screenshot?
  7. I'm using MSI Afterburner. Should include Rivatuner. With Rivatuner you can display the systemload while gaming.
