Specs to play rift games on quest?

So I purchased a new pc that isn't powerful enough to run my old Rift, so I sold the Rift and am going to purchase a quest.  I'm wondering if I can still play my Rift games though with the quest link or if the old library is lost until I upgrade my pc to the original Rift video card, etc. requirements.  My new pc has a video card that matches what Oculus says I would need for the link (Nvidia GTX 1650) but I'm not sure how the link is going to actually sync and work.  Any advice?

     Not sure but if you're not willing to gamble on trying, I doubt anyone can give you a wholesome answer. I've seen posts from folks with unsupported AMD cards working with the link.
    Your card is not currently on any list I've seen supported by the beta https://www.roadtovr.com/oculus-quest-pc-requirements-oculus-link-minimum-specs/ 
     Oculus folks said they are planning on expanding the list of supported cards but for now I think the answer is no.

    Quest link effective lets your Quest act as a Rift. All the game processing is still done on the PC just like before, but now it has to also encode the game's output into a video stream and send that to the Quest for display.
    .
    If your PC wasn't powerful enough to run an old Rift, it most likely won't be powerful enough to run the same games on Quest link either.
