Overkill PC for a Vive?
Hey there, I work for a University as a 3d generalist and we're looking to get a PC to develop Vive experiences. It's been a while since I've looked at hardware and wondering if this is overkill (keeping in mind I also render 3d animations via Blender which loves SLi and Nvidia cards and we'll be doing some photogrammetry).
Thanks in advance.

The 4k monitor is good but be prepared to have a large table for it (95 cm depth minimum) or you'll break your neck since it's so large and not curved.
4500$ for this PC is too much. Much easier to just choose the parts and let a big PC vendor assemble it for you.
As 1080 costs about 650$ this PC could easily be in the 3500$ area while having much better parts (8 core and 64gb RAM and 1tb ssd plus the almost best highest clocked 1080).
See here, I put it together really fast, so don't take it for granted, just be aware that this can be much cheaper.
I think I would easily fit into 2500$ if I didn't include huge SSD, 8 core and 64 gbs.
