    Hy guys
    Im new to the vr gaming. Tried it on a local cafe where they offer to try it out since then i need one by myself
    Three questions
    I need it only for simracing. I often see offers on the web where the sell only the headset and the controller not the lighthouse stations
    Is it right that i only need one to use it when seated?
    Second one: my gaming setup is behind a drawer in a darker room. Do i need roomlighting for it or is it working when lets say my tv is on? I put a picture from my setup below
    Third: i run the vr programm to see if my pc is capable of running vr
    the result was above the middle from the green bar
    My specs are radeon rx580 a10 6800k amd cpu
    8 gb ram
    Is this enough? Only for iracing and assetto corsa

    Thanks guys

    iRacing is awesome, but it is a memory hog. If you are using a Vive, you have to get the lighthouses for it to work at all, even seated.

    My recommendations:
    16GB RAM minimum -- 32GB is where you should be
    RX580 -- at least 4GB video ram
    I would recommend at least a FX85xx processor, anymore a Ryzen 5 or 7 would work well.
