While NVIDIA has its own VR Requirements using GeForce Experience, players can also use the Steam VR Performance Test to check your if your system is VR Ready or if it?s being crippled or bottlenecked by a certain hardware on your system like Graphics Card and CPU.
Players can use the Steam VR Performance Test to compare scores with other Steam users that ran same the test or identify which hardware should be upgraded to increase the performance when it comes to VR games.
The basic system requirements or minimum requirements are NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9-290. The requirements and performance depends on the game you?re running. It may show great performance when running simulators but may run poorly when it comes to graphically demanding games like Grand Theft Auto V.
HTC Vive again, costs $800 or $1200 in addition to a few hundred dollars worth of PC to give you a smooth and optimal experience.
