VR is just a term for things like Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Cardboard etc
Ofc you can play on PC. right now games such as project cars, dirt rally already has VR.
However, the HTC itself costs 799$ and to play in VR you need a powerful CPU and GPU.

A good PC VR gaming experience, including the HMD (head mounted display) and the full PC build is going to be in the $1500 range to start.

Games, like on Steam for instance, will indicate whether they have VR support or not. The Oculus store, of course, is for the Rift HMD and are all VR experiences. While there are ways to take games that don't have VR support and run them (VorpX is one), these are generally not ideal solutions.....or take a bit of tinkering to get running smoothly (but again, they will never be as good as native VR support).

Is it worth the cost? Depends on you....PC's are the very best platform to experience VR on (leaps and bounds better than any mobile you've happened to try yet, and certainly will blow PSVR out of the water) but not for everyone.

I don't know about the precise hardware requirements for VR but they said RX 480 / GTX 970 is the minimum.
And since the head display itself is so expensive I'd stay away from VR and even then I have a VR ready 1070.
