    My nephew received an Oculus Rift S for Christmas but ran into an issue during setup, his current PC GPU does not have a display port option (hard to believe I know), and adapters will not work according to Oculus themselves and a quick Google search.

    Below are his current specs, before we go any farther, yes I realize he needs a serious upgrade, but at this point I want to get him up and running using the Oculus, so my question is the following:

    Can I throw the Radeon RX 570 into his PC and will it run OK with his current specs?, I have one laying around so I'm hoping it will do the trick.

    Motherboard: GA-970A-DS3P rev 2
    GPU: Radeon R7 200
    Memory: DDR3 8GB (not sure of make and model at this time)
    CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera
    PSU: 600 Watt 80+

    Probably not a good idea.
    The CPU alone is weak.
    A full system upgrade for VR should be do, to be honest.

    But, yes, you can throw a RX 570 and it will work.
    Just, don't expect to have enough performance for VR.

    rig is lacklustre, wouldn't be worth using a rift s with.

    I threw it in and it runs fine, the VR requirements are very low so no extreme hardware needed. But thanks.
