my buddy has a i5 3570k with a gtx 980 ti an has been running the oculus rift perfect ive seen it myself now i have a i5-3570 without the k tho just a plain i5-3570 anyways my buddy says just buy a gtx 970 or higher an ill be fine to run vr great so im thinking about buying a gtx 1070 ive beeing thinking about buying a video card anyway ive got a old card still good tho its a gtx 570 but defintiely will not cut it to be able to play vr so is he right
if i go an buy a gtx 1070 with an i5 3570 paired up that will more than likely be able to play vr games good he's right beside me he told me to put this youtube video in cause this is basicly his system https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVmfT8QhvEQ
