Lol, ok. Whats the difference and which should I go for? I was looking at the following build for the 2080 as I assumed this is the correct GPU card... sorry to keep asking questions.... I have now included both, which is the better build for my requirements... both very similar cost

Can you give any advice with regards to the 2080 over the 2070? Worth the extra cost?

Hi, so I have done a bit of research and using your original 'high end' build made a few slight changes, to maybe fall in the middle of the two builds you suggested... would this build work well for what I want, and is there any major downside to using the 5700GPU instead of the 2070GPU? (I also looked at the 2080 GPU, but frankly having checked the system requirements for what I need this build far surpasses even the recommended requirements)

Would you opt for a 2070 GPU or the radeon xt 5700?

Also would it be worth it to reduce the ssd drive to a smaller size (512gb)

I understand perfectly. Thank you so much for your help... I may post another build I have in mind... if you could let me know your thoughts I'd be grateful, as you seem to know what you are talking about.

Thank you for your reply, but I'm not sure I understand which question your response refers to? (I know I asked a few questions, apologies)

You were very clear, I would never have been able to tell if you hadn't said anything :-) makes perfect sense.

I have been doing some reading and others have suggested the Ryzen 5 is as capable of running VR to high spec... also have seen other builds for the £700 range. Would a lower priced graphics card and CPU drastically affect the performance? I know the performance obviously wouldn't be as good but is my budget overkill for what I need?

The video editing side would be purely casual, not for professional use, lets say I was building a pc purely for VR would i still be able to edit videos on it anyway?

I really appreciate the time you've taken for both the parts lists, and sorry for asking loads of questions, I'm trying my best to understand...

Do I need to spend £1500 for a workable PC or are many of these parts 'luxury' when I could get a similar result for 'recommended' I hope this makes sense?

Thank you so much for this, if I may ask a few questions?

I notice the CPU is more expensive than other parts lists, for 3.6 ghz 8-core processors, what is the benefit of the Ryzen 7 instead say, the 6?

What is the purpose of having two storage cards?

I noticed the case seems to be for single fan use (apologies if I've got this completely wrong), would I not need better cooling?...and where is the fan in the build?

And what is the benefit of a 750w power supply system?

My apologies for asking so many questions, I really appreciate you taking the time... also if anyone else has any input or can answer also I would be most grateful.... apologies if my questions seem stupid or ignorant, I'm brand new to this...

Let's say that's the top end spec of my budget, and if I wanted to reduce the total by £200-400, could you make any suggestions and give me the general implications and how it would affect performance.

Thank you
