Virtual Reality: Discover new worlds in never before seen immersion!

Virtual reality (VR) is a computer simulated experience, in which a complete world is simulated. It can be similar to our world or something completely different from our reality. The first commercial Virtual Reality Headsets where introduced in form of the Oculus and the Vive from HTC. While VR can be an amazing experience, it requires a potent Gaming System. You could run VR on a Mid Range System, but the experience could be diminished poor performance.

A VR System needs a VR ready Graphics Card that can compute a virtual space in real time and a powerful CPU. A basic rule of thumb is a Gaming PC capable of running games in 4K can also run VR Games VR Headsets like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive have several essential requirements. For example, the HTC Vive Pro Eye Virtual Reality Headset has two AMOLED Displays with a resolution of 1440*1600 pixels. Your System needs to generate a refresh rate of more than 90hz and a Motion to Photon latency of under 20ms.

So in order to dive into a virtual world you need a performant VR Gaming PC and a VR headset. For a Graphics Card we would recommend at least an AMD Radeon RX 5700(XT) or a NVIDIA Radeon RTX 2060. For CPUs we would recommend an Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 7 processor. Also, at least 16GBs of Memory a recommended. To store VR video games on your system, a SSD would be the best choice.
