Hi,

 

I am looking to buy an oculus rift and touch (Take your squabbling somewhere else) and am only looking to play light games - Rec Room, Job Simulator, not anything like robo recall. What is the lowest graphics card I would need. Also I don't get motion sick.

 

Thanks 

 

P.s I have a 750ti FTW

GTX970 should be fine (and cheapest option if you buy a secondhand one).

 

But I would recommend a GTX1060 6GB if you can pay a little more for what you need.

So nothing cheaper. And the 970 is worse than the 1060?

Ideally a 480/1060, but the minimum specs to run an Oculus rift is a 1050ti. 

Please quote our replys so we get a notification and can reply easily. Never cheap out on a PSU, or I will come to watch the fireworks.

NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti/AMD Radeon RX 470 or greater

NVIDIA GTX 960/AMD Radeon R9 290 or greater

Yes, or a 960. You will need a 480 or 1060 for the HTC vive though (Oculus uses Asynchronous Spacewarp to fill in the gaps and lower minimum specs).

1060 is slightly better/faster (about 10% average) at pretty much everything than a 970, and considerably better re VRAM at 6GB vs 4GB (3.5 usable) on the 970.

 

There may be cheaper/better AMD alternatives but i have no experience of them.

1060 but if you can stretch, a 1070 will be worth it. Don't try to go for minimum requirements, you'll just end up regretting it when new games release that you can't run. You need high FPS for VR

That's an F in the profile pic

Also I don't get motion sick.

VR induced nausea is very different from motion sickness. Regular motion sickness is caused by motion, VR sickness is not. I don't get motion sick either but VR has thrown a curve ball at me multiple times before. Just a heads up :D
