How do I extend my Rift's cables?

Keeping your gaming PC in a different room than where you want to use your Rift is entirely possible and can be done for about $30. To extend your Rift's reach, you'll need an HDMI extension cable and a USB 3.0 extension cable. Below we've laid out some options for you to keep the price down and to take the guesswork out of buying compatible hardware.

How to extend the Rift's HDMI cable

As far as an HDMI extension goes, this six-foot Commercial Series Monoprice cable should do the trick. It's cheap (about $12), it's built well, and it's recommended by Oculus.

Monoprice is also the name to go with for a USB 3.0 extension cable. It has a 15-foot range, it's built well, and it's recommended by Oculus. This cable will set you back about $20, but it's worth every penny.
