    I am getting Oculus Rift and want to know what I need to do to prepare my PC for VR gaming? Is there any hardware or software that I need to buy/download in addition?

    Are there any other VR headsets that work well with a PC?

    Yes Bobo, you also use the HTC Vibe with a PC. In fact the specs of the PC are actually a little less for the Vibe....

    Need a good GPU and CPU... AMD just announced a 200 dollar VR Ready video card that looks great!

    Just ran the test on my gaming PC which just meets the minimum specs of GTX970 (nothing special or overclocked about it) and an i5-4590 3.3GHz. Got me into the ready section with an average fidelity of 6.4. Perhaps its your motherboard chipset holding you back as that is a fairly old CPU you have there.
