    Inateck 5 port USB 3.0 PCI-e card - anyone using it?

    I added the Inateck PCI-e USB 3.0 card to my system to take the load off the USB controllers on my motherboard. On my Rampage V Edition 10 I had filled all of my USB ports except for the USB 3.1 Type C ports. Everything was working fine but I wanted to have open ports for charging things, etc...

    Oculus Touch price drop feels like I have been scammed...

    I don't normally like to make a big deal out of things, but I am truly concerned about what happened with the Oculus touch price. How can a company just drop the price on a product by 50% three months after release? I pre-ordered my touch and got it mid December. Within a few months, they...

    Should I get Playstation VR or Oculus Rift?

    HTC Vive is still too expensive and I barely have any space to move, so I'm not considering it (but it would have been my #1 choice). - I own a Playstation 4 Pro. - I have a fairly powerful computer, but I read that SLI either doesn't work or make the VR experience worse.

    Oculus Touch Pre-Order Listed At $250 In The UK

    Pre-orders for the Oculus Touch are listed for $250 in the UK. Damn! That's a little more than I thought they were going to go for. That still makes a complete set (Rift + Touch) about the same as buying the HTC Vive but still, I thought they would come in at around $150 or so.
