Budget: $1000, give or take
Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Oculus Rift, 3D modeling, CAD, photo/video/audio editing, gaming
Here's the Rift specs: - NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater - Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater - 8GB+ RAM - 2x USB 3.0 ports - HDMI 1.3 video output supporting a 297MHz clock via a direct output architecture
Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): No periphs. I'm look at the tower only. Have a number of keyboards/mice/trackballs, and a new 32" HP Envy monitor.
Operating System required: Already own a copy of Win10.
3 drives: SSD boot, ~1TB HD, and an optical drive
Would prefer 16GB RAM over 8, but will listen to the recommendations. (My Macs typically had 32.)
I'm coming from the world of Mac, and so am a newb to PC hardware.
I'd like to pull the trigger by the end of business today.
