Budget VR Builds And The Best GTX 1060: Community Roundup

The Tom's Hardware Community is constantly busy. Whether our members are discussing the site's latest articles and reviews, providing tech support and building advice, or playing the latest PC Games, we have so much great stuff going on that it could make your head spin! Not to worry -- Community Roundup is here to let you know the best of what's going on in the Tom's Hardware forums on a regular basis.

  • That's right folks! Another week, another Steam giveaway. Our last Steam Giveaway for Civilization VI ran into Halloween, so to make up for it, we're giving away a bundle of three very spooky games. Up for grabs this time are three copies each of Darkest Dungeon, Gone Home, and the Alan Wake Franchise. You know the drill. Head to the giveaway thread in our PC Gaming forum for your chance to enter the raffle and answer the discussion prompt.    
  • There are five days left to enter our Best Builds 4th Quarter update. We're accepting submissions for the Best VR Ready Build for $600 or less. Oculus lowered the requirements for a VR Ready PC thanks to an algorithmic technology they are calling "asynchronous space warp." The new piece of code doesn't let you traverse the cosmos, but it does give last-gen cards the equivalent of a VR warp drive. Given the steep budgetary requirements of this new Best Build category, the competition is fierce. Think you have what it takes? Add your submission to our Best Build thread in the Systems Forum and show us your component picking expertise.
  • The holidays are nearly upon us, and so too is the inevitable avalanche of sales and deals that mark the end of our year. Some of you may have already bought gifts for you and your loved ones, but for the rest of us, there’s the Tom’s Hardware Community. A brand new GPU is the top of many of members' lists, but with so many options, it's quite the challenge to find the absolute best buy. User Joshua_67 has his eyes set on an Nvidia GTX 1060, "preferably one with 6GB of video memory." With a budget of roughly $400, there is a vast number of options. Join the discussion and give us your expert advice. Also, be sure to check out the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1000 series MegaThread in the Graphics Cards forum for the latest updates on Nvidia's Pascal architecture.
  • Livestreaming can be quite taxing on your CPU. Juggling the background OS processes and in-game calculations, as well as the streaming service and any required software, is quite the balancing act. User "George mm" wants to know if the AMD A10-7860k is up to the cast. He plans to broad cast games "using O.BS. and streaming them to Twitch." Do you have any experience with livestreaming? Help George mm out and join the discussion in the CPUs forum.
