Hi everyone,

I'm working in a company that requested me to provide them a PC that enable the best performance of VR and run games/application at maximum settings.

It can be a pre-build PC or we build it.

The budget is open but you can provide me with different options so we can have a look onto it.

Unfortunately, I don't understand fully in building PC and providing specs. Kindly, help me in this matter.

Thanks

As above, if budget isn't really an issue, then there's no reason to not go with the best components available to provide the best possible experience. A full build would look something like this:

But it you want something a little more reasonable and can still provide around 90-95% of the above system's performance, you could try something like this:

And even this build is well above the recommended system requirements for either of the two major headset designers (HTC Vive and Oculus Rift). You could even knock off another few hundred dollars and still have a decent performer. It really does depend on your spending budget and how much is too much.
