    Advice re Vr purchase

    About to dip my toes in the VR world.

    Assuming that PC power is not an issue, Whats the best VR set for running Project Cars2 and hopefully Lockheed's PP3d.

    I am thinking of Oculus Quest All-in-one VR Gaming Headset – 128GB or
    HTC VIVE Cosmos Virtual Reality Headset

    Since first posting I am also interrested in HP Reverb Virtual Reality Headset - Professional Edition - for PC - 114° Field of View.

    Robin.

    As for the Reverb, I ran that for a week now (have to return it due to some mic trouble) and believe me, it needs A LOT of power to be fun. I run a 1080ti and I wouldn´t recommend to go any lower. Maybe after tinkering with all the quality setting in the game and in SteamVR I might find some better compromise one day but for the moment: You. Need. Power.

    Oculus S is pretty good. Just make sure you are running the full 80fps and not ASW. (Turn down eye candy if needed)

    If you just connect the new headset and it can't run 80fps, it will just switch to ASW without any sort of notification...and it will be less smooth.

    Rift S is good, but I prefer the Reverb due to the extra detail and definition as well as the reasonable built in sound. Rift S audio is poor, so factor in a good sound solution for racing and flying.
    PC2 gives a great VR experience with the Reverb, you can see much more detail in the distant cars on track. P3D and X-Plane perform very poor in VR compared to PC2, but I'd say I get just about acceptable performance (I fly mostly XP11). Aerofly FS2 is easily the best VR flight sim experience, but is less mature in some aspects compared to the more established flight sims.

    According to early reports, Oculus Quest won't be able to play the entire library on software only some of the software in the Oculus store will be supported. It's doing some kind of streaming using the USB-C cable. And the display only operates at 60hz.

    IMHO, there are only 2 headsets you should look at for Project Cars2:

    1. HP Reverb:
    The Good: Awesome visuals, very good audio, very light weight, 90Hz display, no god rays
    The Bad: Possible quality issues, screen can have some mura, IPD is not manually adjustable, needs some cable management to solve balance and you need a super powerful GPU (minimum 1080Ti for PCars2)

    2. Valve Index:
    The Good: Good visuals, amazing tracking, well balanced, awesome sound, very good quality, 120Hz and 144Hz FPS, manually adjustable IPD
    The Bad: Not as sharp as the Reverb, slight god rays.

    Both the above headsets have better visuals and sound than the Rift S's.

    and both are about 600$ or 800$ more ...

    I have Index and should I be on the fence now, I might drop it out for Cosmos for lower price point and simpler overall setup, if not for any other reason. Of course Cosmos needs some reviews first, but on the paper it looks good.

    I would not scoff at Oculus Rift S either if your IPD is just close enough match with its unadjustable default value.

    Really both Index and Reverb require more oomph than what the most powerful systems currently have to offer, and I expect the same for Cosmos. It is pretty annoying to first see the high res view of the games, and then turn third of that clarity and most of the details down just to get the games running without motion smoothing artifacts.
    But one can think these as an investments into future; one day you can buy a display card that will run them as designed. [bittersweet]

    This was my approach when I ordered the Reverb. Waiting for an affordable RTX3090ti now.

    They are only either $200 to $250 more than the Oculus Rift S and totally worth it. Not $600-$800 more.
