Is my computer VR Ready?

I'm honestly a bit new to this kind of stuff but I'm planning on buying an HTC Vive VR headset for Steam and general PC VR gaming. Does anyone know if my current build is sufficient enough to run it? I'll leave a link to my build down below (Please be advised, I've upgraded to 16gb RAM and only have the stock cooler so the cooler on the list is N/A).

Itll work but maybe not as good as you might expect depending on how you view it. VR tends to cause sickness due to the amount of framerate being quite different than what we normally experience moving around. Companies are starting to increase the performance of their headsets and/or VR games to alleviate this issue by increasing the amount of frames displayed on each eye as the headsets project 2 images to create the illusion of VR. This is where Ryzen has issues due to its lower IPC compared to Intel's but hopefully, devs properly develop their games to take advantage of multi core CPUs.

You might not be able to experience the best of VR but you should still have a pretty good time.do note that different headsets have different specs where one of the recent prototypes was displaying 2 1440p images which is well beyond the specs of your GPU but by the time its market ready, you might have been able to upgrade by then.

That is just Fallout 4 though. We have no idea if he plays it.

I do know it comes with the Vive Headset so I'll probably be playing a little bit of it at least.

Thanks for the heads up! It does come with the Vive Headset so I might have to upgrade sooner rather than later; the headset itself is going to take up most of a paycheck as-is.
