Itís about content as well. If my gaming is less than 20% flight or first person type games after the initial rush what will I do with it?  It will end up being the pc version of the kitchen bread maker gathering dust and taking up shelf space

The whole lot of you are curmudgeons who don't understand how to get the most out of the technology.  :pullhair: With the right rig and the right settings, a good VR headset is worth every penny.   :bd:

I'd like to try VR, but not for....gaming, if you know what I mean.   :hide:   :-"

I love the Idea of VR in flight sims, but in a dogfight I'll takedown someone in a vr headset any day of the week with my 4K monitor simply cause I'll spot em quicker.  I'm waiting for more tactile glove support to pair with the headset, to me that'll be the game changer.  You could justify the expense because you won't be constructing a physical cockpit.

Iíve read people claim the opposite, in fact.
On a 4K monitor the pixels are much smaller (and with AA blurred even) and by design of dynamic object scaling an aircraft further out shows up as a far bigger blip (pixel) in a VR headset than on your 4K monitor.
