Not just any old PC can run VR — whether you’re looking at Oculus Rift S, HTC Vive, Vive Pro, Valve Index, or the Windows Mixed Reality headsets — and you might be wondering about a graphics card (GPU) upgrade to get your PC up to snuff. While the NVIDIA RTX 2060 is likely the best bet for most people due to its performance-to-price ratio, we’ve rounded up a bunch of options here that fit different budgets and needs.
Best Entry-Level AMD: Sapphire Nitro+ RX 590
Investing in a VR headset and the PC hardware to power it can be a pricey situation, which is where the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 590 comes in. You’re not going to get a perfect experience with maximum framerates with every VR game out there, but you should be able to play just about everything on offer, if at reduced specs.
The Nitro+ RX 590 has 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM and dual fans help keep it cool. Its dual DisplayPort and HDMI ports allow easy connectivity, and its size allows it to fit into most PC cases. If you’re on a budget and love what AMD is doing with its GPUs, the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 590 should be a great choice.
