AMD Readon HD6800 series incompatibilities

Level 2
hi, a friend lent me the oculus.
but I found that my video card is not compatible.
Oculus app asks me to update my card drivers, but I already have them updated, although I also found out that the drivers for the 6800 and 6900 range are discontinued.
I am a video game developer, in Argentina it is not enough to go buy a video card every two years ...
Is there a chance that I can run the Oculus? I am an independent video game developer, I have a good computer, with Windows 7 or Windows 10, but I cannot even install the Oculus software 😞
I will appreciate if you can guide me. I really want to live the experience of playing with the Oculus and making some games.

my greetings

You definitely need a GPU upgrade there's a reason it's incompatible and that is because it can't handle VR at all I'd say go for a RX-570 or a 580 (or a 1050ti, if you fancy Nvidia's offerings) though there's some good news your i5-2500K is right on par with the i5-4590 that Oculus recommends

ahhh, thanks for the answer, here is to expensive the dollar, so i can't buy another GPU.

the strange thing, Oculus installation say, you need to upgrate your drivers
It will more easy if on the start the oculus app tell me, your video card is incompatible.

ok, thanks!
