My PC doesn't work with link, so I was wondering if this is possible.

    In general, if your PC specs are not up to your Quest with Link then you will not get good results with Virtual Desktop wireless imho. Of course you could spend $20 for VD on Quest and find out for yourself.  If it does not work then quickly apply for a refund.

    Technically, yes, there is a way to make it work by spoofing the PC into pretending like it's not bad
    But you're still using your PC, so it would just be sort of a waste of time once you find out how poor the performance is, then either stick to quest-only titles or go back to desktop roblox

    VR is fun at the basic level for a couple hours but it doesn't justify the huge cost in getting one + making it work unless you are gonna deep dive into the medium
