I have two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Lightning in SLI, i just ordered the Oculus rift yesterday, will it be good to run on this system?

The rest of the specs are;

i7 at 3.70Hz x 4cores
16 Gigs of ram
Win 10 Pro


PS: I'm like 90% sure it will but still got to ask lol!

Thanks for the help!

Just found this on their site, we good!!

Minimum System Requirements
There are no specific computer hardware requirements for the Oculus SDK. However, we recommend a computer with a modern graphics card. A good benchmark is to try running Unreal Engine 3 and Unity at 60 frames per second (FPS) with vertical sync and stereo 3D enabled. If this is possible without dropping frames, then your configuration should be sufficient for Oculus Rift development.

The following components are provided as a minimum guideline:

Windows: 7, 8, or 8.1
MacOS: 10.8+
Linux: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
2.5+ GHz processor
4 GB system RAM
DirectX 10 or OpenGL 3 compatible video card.
Many lower end and mobile video cards, such as the Intel HD 5000, have the graphics capabilities to run minimal Rift demos. However, their rendering throughput may be inadequate for full-scene 75 FPS VR rendering with stereo and distortion. Developers targeting this class of hardware will need to be very conscious of scene geometry because low-latency rendering at 75 FPS is critical for a usable VR experience. Irregular display updates are also particularly apparent in VR, so your application must avoid skipping frames.

If you are looking for a portable VR workstation, the Nvidia 650M inside of a MacBook Pro Retina provides minimal graphics power for low end demo development.

Tho i recomend upgrading video cards as the updates with the 600 series have been crap & nvidia will be dropping support for the 600 series shortly. I just upgraded from the 600 series as nvidia been throttling them back to force people to upgrade. I got 3 600 series cards in my house & from what they were to now driver wise are horrible. I went AMD to get away from the nvidia bs. IF it runs i be suprised tho it wont be flash & choppy. Best experience will be a decent upgrade to make the most of VR.

No, it will not be fine.

VR SLI has near-zero support, so in reality you're going to have just the power of a single GTX 680. That just isn't good enough for most VR content.

A few titles with simple graphics may run alright, but a lot of stuff will be chugging.

That's for developers.

Here are the minimum and recommended specs for the Oculus Rift:

Recommended Specs
Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 1060 / AMD Radeon RX 480 or greater
Alternative Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD Radeon R9 290 or greater
CPU Intel i5-4590 / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X or greater
Memory 8GB+ RAM
USB Ports 3x USB 3.0 ports, plus 1x USB 2.0 port

Minimum Specs
Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti / AMD Radeon RX 470 or greater
Alternative Graphics Card NVIDIA GTX 960 4GB / AMD Radeon R9 290 or greater
CPU Intel i3-6100 / AMD Ryzen 3 1200, FX4350 or greater
Memory 8GB+ RAM
USB Ports 1x USB 3.0 port, plus 2x USB 2.0 ports

Note that the GTX 960, GTX 1050 Ti, and RX 470 are only enough because of ASW. The 600 series does not support ASW.
