PC System Analysis For HTC Vive Requirements
The HTC Vive is one of the first dedicated virtual reality headets to hit the market. HTC and Valve have gone with nearly identical system requirements as the Oculus Rift, and you'll need a high end system with at least 4GB VRAM in order to hit the needed 90FPS at 2160 x 1200 resolution.
