SteamVR is not the only Virtual Reality hitting the market soon, with PlayStationVR, ViveVR, and Oculus Rift all expected to release this year.
However, Valve appears to have the most promising system scheduled for release. With SteamVR free for developers, it was June last year when they first started shipping them out to developers.
It isn’t an unknown fact that you’ll need a powerful computer to run most VR systems, and you don’t want to spend money (Over $400) on a peripheral that you can’t properly run.
Thankfully, for those looking at getting SteamVR, they’ve developed a test. The application can be downloaded here, and it takes you through a Portal themed test that will give you suggestions on how to upgrade your computer should you need to.
