Virtual Reality is changing the way we enjoy experiences because it places us directly in the heart of the action.

Once you have felt the inmersion and the realism that virtual reality gives, you will feel captivated, and immediately you are going to want to have your own HMD.

So if you have already experienced how it feels and you are thinking on buying a PC able to run VR (VR READY), this is everything what you have to know:

The fast and easy way to know it is looking for the VR READY tag in the PC specifications. As pcmag tell us in their encyclopedia, it means:  

“A computer fast enough to support virtual reality applications. Available as towers or laptops, such machines have the fastest graphics cards and processors. They also have a large number of USB ports”

To be VR READY, a PC needs a specific graphic card. From VT-Lab, we recommend the following ones:

Nvidia is the one that we usually use in our PC’s. The systems and graphic cards marked with the tag “GeForce GTX VR Ready” ensure that your VR games or experiences will be optimized with the best GPU of their category, as they say in their web.

We are sure that it is probably the best option of graphic cards in the market and we are satisfied with how it works.

The Radeon VR Ready Premium solution by AMD, guaranteed us that their graphic cards satisfy the expectations and specifications recommended by Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.

 We recommend to make the biggest expenditure of the computer in this component because it is mainly the one with the most workload stand, as well as making an optimal study of it ventilation to maintenance in a correct temperature for work.

In order to the PC’s, we have worked in most of our projects with the MSI GT72VR 7RE Dominator Pro/ MSI GT73VR 6RF-077ES. They are very complete PC’s and they work efficiently. Here you have all the characteristics.
