These parts are based on the minimum requirements to run an Oculus Rift. Parts totaled €1021.09 EUR and that includes shipping. I could of got cheaper as I paid a lot in shipping as I was buying the parts in drips and drabs and the parts are a good bit more expensive with the vat for Ireland on top.
If you wanted to build a cheaper min spec for the rift u could take the SSD drive off, led fan, DVD drive and have 8gb memory instead of 16gb and the price would be under the 1000euro mark.
This build started badly when I heard a crunch noise on the cpu and i thought id ruined everything lol. Lucky for me it was the normal noise its supposed to make apparently. The build was definately harder then I had thought. Watching videos is not the same as the real thing.
The Coolmaster n300 i learned is terrible for cable management, hence you can see cables not the best but also I'm an amateur :)
I had to put two planks of wood underneath the computer as a temporary measure cos its on carpet,. I just need to think of something I could put under it that looks half decent. Any suggestions?
Also If anyone wants to know what sites I bought each part and pricing etc gimme a shout.
