Find the Perfect VR Setup for You: A Comprehensive Guide to VRChat in 2024

Choosing a VR setup in 2024 can be overwhelming, to say the least. With contenders like Quest 2 and Valve Index still very popular, and next-gen headsets like the Big Screen Beyond and Quest 3 fighting for the top spot, there’s a wider selection than ever when it comes to full-body tracking with face and eye tracking becoming a hit in VR chat.

As someone who has been using VR for years and has had the opportunity to try nearly every piece of hardware on the market, I understand how expensive this technology can be. That’s why I decided to make a video covering the grounds on where to start and what to upgrade to, to help you avoid wasting your time and money.

Starting with headsets, Quest 2 has been the reigning king of VR with its $300 price tag and accessibility without the need for a PC. However, if you’re planning on spending more time in VR, the newest generation Quest 3 may be worth the extra $200 for its visual and performance upgrades.

For those looking for a more premium experience, the Valve Index has been the headset of choice for enthusiasts, but with the advancements of the Quest 3, it’s becoming harder to recommend the Index for its $1,000 price tag. Refurbished options may be a better choice for those on a budget.

If you’re ready to invest in the next generation of VR, the Big Screen Beyond is a top choice, offering custom-built VR goggles with OLED screens for vivid colors and deep blacks. While pricey at $1,000 for the headset alone, it provides a comfortable experience for those who spend hours in VR.

When it comes to full-body tracking, options like Vive and Tundra trackers offer practical solutions, while IMU tracking provides a more affordable alternative. Slime VR, a popular IMU tracking solution, has finally started shipping to backers after delays, making it a top choice for those willing to wait.

For those interested in face and eye tracking, options like the Vario Arrow or Quest Pro offer built-in capabilities, while DIY solutions like iTrack VR provide alternatives for adding tracking to existing headsets.

Ultimately, finding the perfect VR setup comes down to personal preference and budget. Whether you’re a casual user or a VR enthusiast, there are options available to suit your needs. Don’t forget to share your own advice and experiences in the comments below, and happy VR gaming!
