AMD A8 7600 with RX 480

Hey everyone,

I was hoping to upgrade my current setup with an RX 480 GPU for VR capabilities. I currently have an AMD A8 7600 CPU. I understand it isn't the best pairing, but my question is will it work enough for now until I can upgrade my CPU down the road? I'm sure t will bottleneck at times, but can it work well enough now for Oculus? Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!

What games?

I really don't have any idea yet, lol. I just love the idea of VR and want to jump in without a crazy overhaul of my system just yet. I figure the upgraded GPU will drastically help with gaming in general - so, I'm looking at it as a win/win for right now. As long as it is capable of "basic" VR capabilities right now, I'm happy.

Any games you really like? Have you used VR?
