Here is a link to the YouTube video with the recommendations:

Awesome! This is exactly what I need. I'm going to watch this tonight. No way I am going to waste that $20 I paid for Virtual Desktop

Enjoy!

I also want to note if anyone watches my Twitch stream, the video quality is not the best due to my internet (not an accurate representation of what the video quality looks like in the Quest, which is great).

Quoted from brucipher:

I believe the resolution on the Quest is the same as the Valve Index. The big differences is refresh rate and field of view. The Quest has been great for me, especially at the cost and other benefits.

I guess I was referencing more of the pimax/hp reverb sets. Quest is 1440 × 1600 per eye @ 72 Hz, Reverb is almost 2160 x 2160 @ 90 Hz. And, yeah, Index has the much higher refresh rate, which is super vital in vr. When I play in 60 Hz, I'm ready to throw up in 15 minutes.

I guess I have my "VR legs" as they would call it. I play Alyx with free locomotion (and most other games for that matter) and don't feel sick, but I know it varies from person to person. I am in no way saying the Quest is the best, but I am happy with it.

I've been playing more vr recently and I can tell my eyes are taking a toll. Anyone else get with fatigue? I can barely last more than 30 min.

As for that speed 800-900 Mbps and that's wireless? I've only seen that speed when wired. What is your plan and setup? I have FiOS gb speed with mesh setup via velop but my speeds wireless are 300 or less.

Edit just noticed you say you play right the router. That def helps but even if I bring my laptop wireless next to router in not getting 800mbps

I would consider a VR cable management system if I had the play space.

Yeah, I usually can't play for more than an hour at a time, but I attribute it mostly to my contacts.

Right - I am not playing through the internet - my gaming PC is hard wired to my router, and then the Quest is connected to the 5GHz band on the router. I am also standing about 5-10 feet from my router when I play, so that helps (I noticed if I play from another room I get about 600Mbsp, which has still worked okay with just very occasional stutter). My router is an AC1900 - and the 5GHz band should in theory have data rates up to 1300Mbps per the router specs.

Finally picked up an Oculus Quest, I gotta say this thing is amazing. So much more comfortable then the HTC VIVe and Index I had. It feels lighter, less forceful on the head, plus to me the PQ is more clear. Can't wait to try ALyx on it, so far playing that vader game, its awesome.

Man that Vader game with the rancor , I was actually scared . Rancors are truly frightening !

I have a quest and really want to play this game. The issue is that I don't have a computer that can run it and don't want to invest in a beefy computer when I have one that works well for me. It also doesn't make sense because my PC is upstairs and I play the quest in the basement where there is free space. I would love to play this game though!
