Hi, I was looking into buying a htc Vive but my current pc is a potato. What would be a good budget pc build that can run beat saber, and also not destroy my bank account. Thanks!

I reused the case and storage. I did have a bit of a higher budget than I was expecting, and all of the parts have already been bought.
