Virtual reality (VR) is a computer-generated 3D environment that users can explore and interact with. If you are planning to engage in virtual reality content using a headset and PC, then the first step when looking for a computer is to check the minimum system requirements for your chosen activities. Each system requirement will specify a compatible operating system, processor type, graphic card and the minimum amount of RAM. Typically, you want to ensure your specifications are significantly above the minimum system requirements to ensure your computer runs effectively. Virtual reality is very graphics intensive depending on the software and screen resolution, so we recommend going with a dedicated graphics card in the high-range level. On top of running your other software, virtual reality activities also utilize a lot of RAM. We recommend at least 16GB of RAM just to be on the safe side as the latest operating systems are also becoming more and more RAM intensive. However, your use of multiple applications may require you to have 32GB or more of RAM. Most virtual reality software uses multi-threaded processes. Therefore, your CPU choice should weigh both on the CPU Clock speed and the core count. We only recommend a Solid-State Drive for your operating system and programs instead of a traditional mechanical hard-drive. You can use a mechanical hard-drive as a secondary drive for storing your data if you wish, but we also recommend having your virtual reality applications on a solid-state drive so the playback and speed of your activities are not bottlenecked by the read and write speeds of your storage device. If you do happen to go with a solid-state drive to hold your software, ensure you have enough space because VR software can be really large in file size.
