    So I'm going to buy a vr headset, propably the Oculus Rift, but my PC is not the best out there. I've heard that my components are just good enough to play vr, but certainly not the best so I was wondering how could I make the experience just a little better and I came up with an idea that maybe I could lower my desktop refresh rate to say 30 (from 75), and also lower the desktop resolution to like half of full hd. So my question is would this give the vr headset a performance boost and affect the experience?

    It will help to a point, but the biggest driving force you can do to make any VR headset work at optimum performance is to increase CPU, proc, and RAM. Honestly, turning down your monitor settings does not do enough to open up resources to make things better.

    Another, and this can expensive, option is to buy an external GPU.
