if you own steam or sign up, they have a app you can dl 1.9 GB for free and tests your PC for VR qualification. Granted its supprting VIVE but i think the qualification is the same for all VR. I have a Intel i7 4790 and a GTX 760 4GB OC but my GPU failed to pass. If you have 2 760s I would like to know if you passed because im thinking about buying another one.
I am hoping my sli gtx 760s will be enough to handle the rift. similar/close performance to a 970 depending on drivers of the game...only time will tell...holding off for the 1000 series cards to upgrade
