      Don't do it. It's not a seamless experience as they describe. I had problems with drivers crashing and the computer restarting every time I used the Oculus.

        Answer

        The socket on the motherboard is an AM3+, so you can only use cpus that fit into that socket. No Intel chip will work as AM3+ is an AMD chipset, and the Ryzen uses AM4. I replaced my cpu with an AMD 8350 Black Edition, which works great. As for the PSU, I couldn't tell the wattage, but it should be enough to power most any rig (unless you are looking at multiple gpus. The reason I went with the AMD 8350 was it had the same wattage as the 4350 that came inside. So no worries about power there. I'm not sure what issues you are having, or if you are just wanting to upgrade, but the issue I had with my rig was the graphics card, it was garbage and kept crashing the computer. I replaced that with a Nvidia GTX 980 from an older rig, and all of my problems went away.

      I see alot of reviews saying this isnt as vr ready as they wanted, and that its not worth it, but is it worth it in general as a stand-alone gaming desktop? I can always upgrade the parts inside to run better for VR later on anyways.   (2 Answers)

      What other processors can you switch out withe the that is equipped with this pc? Also what games can this not run?   (1 Answer)

        I don't know specifically what games won't run, but I've found that without upgrading, any hardware intensive game struggled. Any CPU with an AM3+ socket SHOULD work. I got the AMD 8350 Black Edition because it had the same power specs as the 4350 that comes in it. But my real problem was the GPU, after I switched that out, I could run most any game. I would recommend an Nvidia GPU because AMD has some driver issues that kept crashing several computers I've had.

        Best Buy offers payment plans with just about anything with their credit card. Usually, items more than 400 dollars qualify for 18 months of no interest. That's how I get most higher priced items.
