I have an i5-3470 cpu @ 3.20ghz processor. I know it recommends something better to run with the oculus rift but i was just wandering if the oculus rift will work with my current processor or if i have to get an upgrade. Thanks in advance.
Yes and no, not all games/apps will max out the processor so a lessor processor will be fine, but if something is more CPU demanding it may cause a problem.
There is always overclocking but with a 3470 there is only so far you can go depending on your board, as for the 2500k, get a better cooler (if you don't already have one) and get overclocking.
In my case a 3570k clocked at 4.5ghz is better than the minimum spec, but at stock speed isn't.
I tried it out in my old pc with a Core 2 quad Q8200, 4 gig ram, GTX 660
Home worked fine and a few experiences, not tracking issues. the ram seemed to be the biggest down fall
