Everybody has to earn enlightenment. While I respect their talents greatly and know my own meager abilities pale to insignificance next to theirs, I claim they have to earn XP like the rest of us. I am also quite certain any one of the recognized experts will quickly earn their sainthood should they come to play.

I just dislike the idea of so idolizing anybody that anything they say is immediately taken as gospel truth.

[Corion]: Hmm - HTC Vive reduces its price to EUR 700 (from EUR 900). Now I have to look what graphics cards prices are - maybe a good enough VR rig can be had for EUR 1500 now instead of EUR 2000(+)
[Corion]: Hmm - nVidia GTX 1070 + Vive makes EUR 1130, leaving EUR 370 for CPU+case+cooler+ RAM - not bad
[Corion]: (I'm not a fan of AMD)
[Corion]: On the other hand, the Radeon 580 RX would cost 380 instead of 430 ... But still, that's ATi and I've been unhappy with ATi drivers the two times I had one in my desktops
