Hello guys, just bought rift s, normally I am not having problems with most pc games but realized that VR is little bit pushing its limits and because of that I keep getting eye strain.

CPU: Intel Core i5-7600 - 65.2%

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060-3GB - 51%

SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250GB - 115.3%

HDD: WD Blue 1TB (2012) - 64.8%

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2400 C16 2x8GB - 70.8%

MBD: MSI H270 GAMING M3 (MS-7A62)

I just ran the benchmark and these are my results. I am planning to upgrade to RTX 2070 first(I realized my gpu's VRAM is always 100% during gaming yet cpu doesnt pass 70% much)

if this doesn't work I will try to upgrade my cpu probably get something with 8 cores and 8 threads at least.

so my questions are:

do you think gpu update would solve my problems?

my oculus is on ssd but apps are going to hdd, would it be causing problems as well?

thank you for your answers already.
