I was considering getting a Vive for Christmas, but I looked at the specs for Fallout 4 VR (as that and Skyrim VR are what interest me the most) and my system just can't handle it.*
I then briefly went, "Hmm... maybe I should just get a WHOLE NEW PC!!!"
I then dismissed the thought because;
1) I don't really want to shell out that much money just to upgrade so that I can "go VR"
2) The Switch is where I spend the majority of my gaming time these days so upgrading my PC isn't a priority.
3) It just doesn't seem like it's 'new gaming PC time"
But that does bring to mind; When IS IT it time to get a new gaming PC? For me I got my current PC (minus the graphic card which I got two years ago) when Civ FIVE was too much for my old PC to handle. Since then it's served me well and I don't have to have it set on ultra max 100% of the time and as I've yet to have any game that I just can not play no matter how low my settings. When NEW HOTNESS is flat out unplayable on my PC, and a new graphics card won't fix the problem, I'll get a new one. Until then... meh.
What about you? What makes you upgrade?
