RX 570, RX 580 and RX 470 also RX 480 are VR ready. But they are currently out of stuck because of the cryptocurrency issue.

forget rx gpus, the price atm is like the price for a gtx 1080 or something like that

if you can afford a gtx 1070, that gpu is vr ready, allegedly, vr do need lots of gpu power, your gpu is on he minimum required for vr, so a decent gpu is a must in your case

A GTX 1050 Ti is enough with an Oculus Rift, or a GTX 1060 with an HTC Vive. But the step up to a 1070 is certainly worth it for the higher settings you can run.

Bit of a bad time for GPU purchasing though. :(

Thanks for the sugestions! Right now GPUs are outrageously over-priced! I looked on newegg and they hardly have any GPUs. I hit one that was "out of stock" for about $230 and the same GPU popped up for over double the price. Wtf...

....and im on a very limited income. Ive looked at Gtx 1070s and they are just out of reach. Wouldnt i be better off getting 2 rx470s or 480s?

no, 2 rx 480 will cost more than the 1070

also work with two gpus is a really bad idea, some games won't support more than 1 gpu, some games work weird, very few will put load on both gpus, bad idea

As im sure you can see im a novice when it comes to computer tech. Truth is a couple years ago id never even opened a computer case! Ive built a couple decent computers since then but im on a very limited budget, as ive said. Im the caregiver for a dear friend and we struggle to get by on her SSI but ive managed to piece together most of what i need for a vr ready desktop, all i need is a GPU. I believe that my friend could possibly benefit from such a system, and if not it wont be too hard to sell it i dont think. There are so many different opinions and ideas all from smarter people then me, but few seem to agree on what should be my best course of action, and now the price of GPUs seems to be skyrocketing, making my cboices even more complicated. I believe the GTX 1070 would be the best choice, but ill have to settle for the GTX1060, unless something else comes up...
Once again thank you for you input, this ol' biker was getting a headache reading specs and shopping (and i hate shopping)
Im going to be paying alot more attention to this site and maybe learn something huh?
