Best Computer For Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality has grown a lot over the past decade, and it’s become a really useful tool for visualisation. Looking at 3D models on your screen doesn’t quite give you the same idea of perspective and scale. With all of this in mind, you might want to consider a dedicated computer for VR.

In this article, we’ll be talking about the components you need to build the best workstation PC for VR.

Why choose us?

Parts like CPU cooler, Power Supply Unit, and chassis are often glossed over when putting together a system like this. Surprisingly, these parts have a massive effect on the lifespan and performance optimisation of the CPU, GPU and RAM. We only use parts that guarantee excellent cooling, airflow, and power delivery.

We’ve also got a lot of experience in putting these systems together, and our cable management is flawless. This not only means dust will be a lot less of an issue, but it will be much easier to work with when you eventually need an upgrade. This will only happen several years down the line, of course. Not to mention our cases just look fantastic.

Each Modena Computers Workstation is tailored to the personal needs of the user, but the features below would make for a great starting point for your VR computer.

Main Components

Before optimizing your computer for VR, you should make sure it’ll be able to handle the software you use.

Virtual Reality is commonly used with programs like Twinmotion and Enscape. These are programs that already require quite a strong graphics card. The addition of VR would require an even stronger GPU. For this kind of work, the Nvidia RTX3060Ti would be a great starting point.

While the graphics card is the most important consideration for VR, it should not be the only area of focus. A strong CPU and a decent amount of RAM will ensure that your graphics card is able to reach its full potential.



There are a few options available when it comes to Virtual Reality headsets. The most popular of these would be the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Whichever one you choose, you’ll have access to much better features than earlier adopters. For example, display resolutions and framerates are much higher than earlier versions. Plus, wireless headsets are currently in development, and these will give you even more freedom.


As we said before, each Modena Computers Vulcan Workstation is custom built to the workflow and budget requirements of its user. It’s important to consider other programs you may want to use with this workstation.

During our consultation process, you can let us know exactly which programs you want to use with your machine, and we’ll be happy to help you understand what you need. 

Keep in mind that opting for higher performance right out of the gate offers much greater value than getting exactly what you need right now. A higher performance PC won’t need downtime to upgrade any time soon, and will also allow you to complete more work in less time. It could pay itself off a lot sooner than a more affordable option.
