The Gaming Build

While waiting for the parts to finish off the rackmount build, I put together the new machine for the Oculus.  It’s amazing to me how nice things are these days compared to even 10 years ago.  Everything just snaps together like Legos.  I think the hardest part is probably spreading the Arctic Silver onto the top of the CPU. The new GeForce 1080s still haven’t shipped yet, so in the mean time, I’ve borrowed the GeForce 660 from the rackmount machine.  You can’t really tell that much of a difference from the the AMD mobo, but I guess now it’s technically “Oculus ready”, or at least, will be with a new GPU. Here’s the part’s list, and here are some pics.
