Download the steam VR test app and see what it says, that will give you a  good indication of what your machine can do, and its free. 😉

 

But if it has that GTX1060ti then you are going to be on the very edge of min vr hardware requirements....what Vr setup are you looking at, the older Cv1, Rift S or one of the Quest HMDS?

I didn't get the computer, I have the oculus and need a compatible computer that isn't  $1600

@fastcash5  Unfortunately to get a decent laptop for good pcvr you are looking at $1,500-2,000.  If you build or buy a desktop gaming pc you should get equal or better specs for -$1,000.  More importantly it will be able to be upgraded later.

 

My advice if you need a laptop for school or work is to buy an inexpensive one that handles basic needs.  Then buy/build a decent desktop gaming pc for pcvr.

 

Alternatively, just enjoy standalone mobile VR with your Q2.

Oh well that laptop is fine for gaming but will struggle with Vr depending on how demanding each game is, and it has no headroom for future Vr games. 😞
