Building a VR rig

By September 30, 2019October 15th, 2019No Comments

So far I’ve been getting on with VR experiences and dev with a standard pc that I use for standard web development. Decided to build myself a pc since I have a few VR projects that need to be completed by a deadline, I decided to go with a custom built VR dev rig.

The hardware requirements aren’t much different than a gaming pc.

Components needed:

  1. Graphics card – GeForce RTX 2070 Super
  2. Processor –  i7 (9th generation)
  3. Motherboard –  MSI Z390-A Pro
  4. RAM – 16gb
  5. Internal HDD  – 1 tb
  6. SSD – 240gb
  7. UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)  – 650w
  8. Case – Coolermaster tower
  9. Screen – any HD screen
  10. Antec cooling fan
  11. Power supply
  12.  Dvd writer


  1. The graphics card, processor and  motherboard need to be compatible with each other.
  2. RAM and motherboard need to be compatible (example DDR4)
  3. Make sure the motherboard has atleast 1  USB 3.0 port
  4. UPS is needed if electricity supply is not consistent
  5. I went with a rectangular case instead of a tower because I wanted easy access to the parts
