I am still deciding which to buy whether be it the 64 gb or the 128 gb but im still in dilemma. I wanted to know if you are going to play a game and its connected to your PC via the oculus link, do you still need a big GB memory for the oculus headset ? or the memory of your PC will be the one being used since its connected to your oculus. I have a 2 TB PC so I am thinking of choosing the 64 gb oculus quest that is if my PCs memory will be used for the games /downloaded games and keep it connected to oculus link while playing and only download chosen games to my quest headset.

You do not need any extra Quest internal storage to play PCVR games with Link or wireless with Virtual Desktop.  These games are only stored on your PC.  The only games that are stored on your Quest are Oculus Quest Store games and ones you may have sideloaded from external sources like from SideQuest.  Unless you intend to store movies to use while travelling I think 64Gb is plenty.  I've got about 12 Quest Store games loaded and I still am only using about 1/2 of my 64Gb capacity.  Pretty easy to uninstall and reinstall games later if you need to imho.

Personnally I choose the 64 GB version and my choice be confirm by a French Youtuber (ETR VR)
 
His point is : 
  • OS take 14 GB (at the moment of his video, maybe more now, I don't check)
  • Still 50 GB free.
On his top 10 games
  • Average at 1 GB by Game (same, at the moment of his video). 
With a fast calcul --> 50 GB = 50 games at the same time and for me is enough 🙂

I'm new on Oculus, I got mine last 2 week, I'm not so experimented but if games take 2 GB ... 25 games at the same times, is still enough.

But he said "128 GB is ok if you want watch film on your oculus quest, cause it take a lot of space or if you want to keep all your game without clean".

Sorry for my English, like the Youtuber, I'm French too 🙂

The main reason I opted for the 128 was so I could put some movies on it for long flights and holidays away, that didn't turn out too well!

Still good to have them when away from home.. and at around 10GB per bluray rip, it adds up pretty quick. Netflix is a good substitute though if you don't want to do that.

I get a week's worth of Prime maybe once every 7 or 8 weeks when I've ordered something on Amazon and need it delivered quick, the free postage makes it good value with the week trial offer. Just a pain to unsubscribe when they ask you to confirm about 5 times!!! I try to binge the good shows when I have it, Piccard and Good Omens most recently.... very good.

64 is fine. I have a crap load of games on mine. You will find that there are games you will play and then never touch again. You can uninstall those games easily and if you decide later that you want to try it out again, you can just download it again. I have had mine for a year and bought a LOT of games. I have not once wished I had spent more and got the 128

I got the 128 gig model, but then again I fully expect to end up with a lot of games over time. That, and I've noticed on my consoles, tablets, and phone that they tend to slow down when the HD is almost full.
Lo, a quest! I seek the threads of my future in the seeds of the past.

I went with 128GB because you can never add anymore.  Uninstalling and reinstalling is a slow painful process.  That's my take on it anyway.  I have already forgotten the burn of paying more and can relax knowing that I have the top spec.
