I currently have a Rx580 and I am looking to get the next best one in the line up. I am not looking to upgrade my CPU which is an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor. Do you recommend that I upgrade my graphics card first or my CPU? Also what is the best graphics card that I can currently run?

P.S. I am looking to start do VR My current build is: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/tyTBD3

Oculus Rift S recommended PC requirements.

V OS: 64-bit Windows 10.

V CPU: Intel i5 4590 / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X or greater.

V RAM: 8GB.

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 / AMD Radeon R9 480 or greater.

V GPU RAM: 8GB.

V USB Ports: 3 USB 3.0 + 1 USB 2.0.

So anything faster than the above mentioned GPUs would suffice.

And that depends from your available budget. :)

Ok, does that mean optimal or minimal? I would like to upgrade my GPU at some point and if I can get a new one that would make VR run better then I think I would go for a new one. What do you think?

According to the above specs, recommended means optimal.

The RX 580 that you already have, trade blows with a GTX 1060.

If you get a faster one than a RX 580, that would be even better.

How does that work? Wouldn't be like assuming such a GPU was "optimal" for a 2560x1440@80Hz monitor (numbers are for Occulus S)? I'd expect a bit more oomph wouldn't be wasted.

GPU for sure. Maybe a 1660 Super. You can basically put whatever you want that your cpu will handle it.

Whats your budget? If you can spend $450 get the rx5700xt red devil.

It would help you out a lot a rx580 is like a gtx 1060 and then a 5700xt is like a rtx 2070 which is then like a gtx 1080 so you'd get a big upgrade.

(I could also use advice on whether to get this version or a different version)

The powercolor red devil is the best rx5700xt tho it costs a bit more then most if you want to save some money go with the msi mech version.

Rx580 is vr ready so if its just for that you dont need a new card
