nothing is wrong, just Steam has declared that based on your specs, you can not effectively run Virtual Reality games very well. An upgrade might be necessary if you really want to get into VR.

As the tool suggests, you need a better graphics card for VR

actually, i guess your shock is from the fact it scored so low, since it said your gpu needed to be upgraded, and your card actually meets the minumum requirements for vr.

previously my other system was a i5-2500, gtx 960, 4x2gb , so in terms of specs is much lower but i had no drop frames and was at the upper part of capable, there was something in you system that must have been running in the background e.g antivirus, etc. check your task manager and make sure nothing is in the background when you do the test.

 

hard to believe a r9 290 would score that low, there must be something going on in the background

could be your video driver, your r9 is better than my gtx 960, amd has put out some glitchy drivers lately, if you are getting good fps on your games i wouldn't put too much merit into the test, it should report the card as a r9 290 rather than as a r9 200, also if you do a search on the forum someone had a 390x and failed

i am planning to buy one anyway even though my specs don't meet the "minimum" requirement and if i have to upgrade i will do it at that time. i dont care what the test says. What i dont agree with is that from what i have been reading some games will actually scan your card to see if you meet the specs and actually won't let you run then which to me is full BS and way to sell more hardware. My opinion
