Yeah, iRacing is a long-running racing sim that is considered extremely accurate. Professional drivers use it to get practice time on tracks or in cars to replicate the physics, preferred lines, etc.No, but I have the Oculus. What is iRacing?
edit: Ah, I see, a VR racing sim. Haven't done that but I played Gran Turismo on PSVR and I didn't love it. I didn't real the racing games were improved by VR.
You can run a desktop interface within Oculus, but you would probably have to fiddle a bit to get it to boot to Oculus. Or maybe not - mine runs through Steam, which loads automatically, so you could probably do it. You would just need access to a remote desktop for the occasion when things went wonky or you needed an update.Can you use Oculus as a monitor substitute, or do you have to basically launch it from a desktop like an app?

Part wise I think you are mostly okay. Some minor suggestions, I would go with a bigger SSD for Windows and games than the 256. My current machine has 256 GB SSD from back when SSD were expensive and it has been the one scrimp I wish I had not made. I am constantly moving things between my 1TB storage disc and my SSD to make space. Another minor change or suggestion is the case, I do not personally like cases with the buttons on top or cases with a lot of obnoxious lights. Something about owning a kitten that enjoys climbing and playing, especially while mommy is playing video games, and frequently turns off mommy's computer at the worse possible times, makes top mounted buttons problematic.I think I need a whole new computer setup to do VR in a sim game.
Does anything about this strike you as off, or wrong, or unnecessary?
