Graphics Card Upgrade

HP Recommended
Example: Pavilion HP OMEN 870 - 195na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi There,


I need some information on what's the best graphics card i can upgrade to for this machine, the HP Omen 870 - 195na comes installed as standard with a Geforce GTX 950 but i am looking to use VR but i have been told it needs a minimum of the GTX970.


Is this true or not?


Can anyone advise me which is the best Graphics card to have in this machine  if i wanted to use VR. but which doesn't cost a fortune?

Hello @CrazyJay


It is what is is and VR is demanding. Power costs money.

You could get away with the bare minimum requriments and go with a newer card like the GTX 1050ti. Oculus Rift has deemed it do-able now.

But I would really recommend at least a GTX 1060 with 6GB of vram.

Nothing wrong with looking for a use one too, if the new price is too much.


Let me know if I can help with something else.
