You can't play *proper* games for desktop VR on Google Cardboard. You can however use a Google cardboard based VR as a 'display' for your pc

There's also Samsung Gear VR, a cheap head mount which uses a Samsung phone as a display.

Just note that cheaper VR solutions uses much lower resolutions, gets less framerates, and do nothing to help with the VR nausea sensation this first generation of VR gives. The expensive VR solutions do their best to help with that to give a more satisfying VR experience.

Gear VR + VRidge + USB tethering is in my opinion the best low-cost PC VR experience you can get

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Thought about one of those but I don't really use hdds like that

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Does it cap out at a certain tb
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    no, i can switch to which drive I want to access with a button on it, I have 4 2tb and 1 4tb, all dif formats, so will work good for me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So you could have a petabyte with it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    You made me go back and look, it says 32tb max per drive. It will be nice when setting up game systems, I can carry one enclosure around, instead of grabbing the right Ext hdd for, say Xbox360 games
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So about 128tb still more than you'd ever need

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I thought about just buying a new ext hdd 12tb like you shown, then format multiple partitions on it, but I'm lazy.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Buy 4 won't have to

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    It was only $75 so still cheaper than a new drive. And less hassle. It would take forever to copy everything over also.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    You take forever

    I like retroarch, once you set it up completely, it's cool. Artwork, summary, and screen shots for all your games is a nice touch. It's basically a organizer for all your emulators/games.
