Please answer me I'm Lost.

So , I live in Tunisia and I'm going to order from "Amazon Ca" an Oculus Rift + Touch controllers (Super excited). But super afraid because there is no refund or return policy in my Country = if it works , it works , if not I'll throw it 😔

Ok, so I did a loooot of researching and watching every Oculus Rift Video on Youtube (Literally) . And just one thing that makes me afraid and don't want to make the purchase is THE SETUP ( Oculus rift setup) especially when it comes to The Sensors Communication test . A lot of people faced that problem . According to my research , this problem because of The Motherboard, somthing concerning USB 3.0 connection or I don't no . And some people suggest that you may need an external USB 3.0 controller ( I don't want that ) .

My question is : these are its characteristics ( please tell me it is good to play ( Beat Saber , Creed , Robo Recall , Gron , SuperHot etc.. ) (I read oculus Rift Low system requirements )

8 GB Ram GTX 1060 6 GB I5 8400 ****MSI B360M PRO-VD*****  ( this MOBO it has 4 USB 3.1 GEN1 Rear should it run correctly my 2 sensors ? ) but it has no integrated graphics card ( is it okay ? )

those will run my Oculus Rift without problems,Please answer me pleaaaaase.

    Yes, it should work fine - but instead of educated guesswork - do try the Oculus Compatibility Check Tool:

    Thank you for your answer .. sorry I cannot do this because I do not have the PC right now .. And the won t allow me to try it before buying it  ( in order to Run The Oculus Compatibility Check Tool ) 

    So you think MSI B360M PRO-VD will do the trick ?  https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B360M-PRO-VD.html

    No one can give you a definitive answer. You'll need to invest in a machine that you can actually test using the Compatibility Tool. Anything else is guesswork that could land you in the wrong path.

    Although there is a discussion on Reddit that has your MB as part of an Oculus Rift Ready build:

    Good luck!

    I think the mainboard looks fine - it's more your choice of cpu, ram and the video card. All should work fine though, if possible up the ram to 16GB - several games will need 16gb to work optimally. 6GB on the 1060 is a good choice. 
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz boost, 11 Ghz ram); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Oculus Rift CV1 - nearly always using super sampling 2.0.
