 I  bought a dell 5680 for light to casual gaming ,I also went ahead and purchased a rift also light to casual gaming. When looking through the rift is kinda hard to see the text unless I move close to them .is that because of my setup or is that just vr. I have $900 in this setup , I thought about sending it back and step up to a Alienware with i7 and a 1080 card with 16g of ram . For around $160...0. Since I am a causal vr player ,would the $1600 unit be a better choice and would it help on reading the text further away. I mostly plan on watching Netflix vr /and look light vr gaming, would and extra $700 be worth the investment. I also know I can purchase a Walmart gaming computer cheaper or have one built but I only plan on buying through dell ,they have always treated me well with warranty

    I'd say the i7 AW with a 1080 is great if you're a heavy gamer. A 1060 6gb is a better option for now. The text I'm afraid is a result of the current round of headsets. Hopefully visual improvements won't be long in coming, maybe late this year or next we'll hear something. I'd save up your money and get a system later down the line that will benefit next gen, hope this helps ?

    The more powerful your machine is the more Supersampling (aka pixel density) you can add and that's make text less blurry. For example I cannot read instruments on my flying sims (IL-2) without at least SS at 1.5. That don't change obviously the native resolution of our headset but really make things sharper, at a cpu/gpu cost.
