Just recently, after buying an Oculus Rift S, I found out two things: 1: my laptop was running on my integrated graphics card for the past two years, and more importantly, 2: that my computer doesn't have a DisplayPort. Before, I thought I could have just used a USB-C to DisplayPort adapter, but low and behold, after fixing the fact that my laptop was defaulting straight to the integrated graphics card (thanks SteamVR Performance Check), I found out that only my HDMI port came out of my discrete graphics card, which wouldn't support this headset. I do have another solution, however.
There's a desktop I have lying around that does have DisplayPort functionality. There's only two problems with it, which are the questions I'm looking to have answered.
1. The hard drive seems to not work. If anyone needs the specific model of it, it is a Seagate 2TB HDD (model ST2000DM001). Does anyone have a solution to fixing it, and if not, what other hard drive solutions there are?
2. The graphics card is too weak. Is there a certain recommendation someone has for a cheap (under $250) graphics card, and can you also show me the place to put it? (I'm new to building PCs, if that wasn't obvious enough.)
If anyone has any answers, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
