    Two more massive cuts to go and we're talkin'.
    One day, I'll grow up and become responsible.
    Probably not today.

    I'm in the fortunate position where I can afford it and I have the pc to use it properly. My biggest concern is the lack of proper VR games. So for now I will wait. Too many normal games to try.

    Mind you I did try out the HTC Vive and it was amazing. The potential is there, it just needs the AAA games and it will be a must buy.

    I really want one... but still a bit too much to justify. Also, I did a quick check, it's R8700 shipped to your door from Amazon.

    I can't afford any of it right now. Either way, I'm much more interested in seeing what LG is going to do with theirs.

    I blew my PC budget to get a 1070, triple screen setup and a few other niceties. Good part is that my rig is VR compatible. Bad part is I need to do some home improvement this year so I'll only be looking at getting it half-way through 2018 (or maybe even 2019).

    That is a good call. Just hope VR doesn't go the way of 3D TV.
