    I wonder if my GTX970 and i5 4690 3.5GHz can handle the Lenovo with Super Sampling.

    I really don't know, I haven't tried the PSVR. Compared to my HTC Vive, the SDE has improved with this headset. A bump in resolution naturally reduces the SDE.

    Supersampling on a 970 would kill the framerates I'm afraid.

    Ok, thanks for the heads up. So no VR headset for me then.

    The 970 is really pushing it for VR sim racing to be honest. A 970 is okay for some other less taxing VR games, but it's underpowered for VR sim racing even without supersampling in my opinion.

    I have a AMD R9 290 and a i5 [email protected] and it has similar performance. For VR sim racing it works ok with up to 20 AI, or 15 ish for online racing, but you have to make do with dips in frame rate. And basically low settings on everything in PCars2. AC is a bit better in my opinion. But the transition from light to dark is epic. One other thing to be aware of is that with rain it kills the frame rate to. You have to be prepared to be racing in 45 fps in certain situations. (not for the people suffering from VR sickness. I'm basically immune as this point)

    I'd be doing practice laps without AI, preferably with high settings in AC (not ACC).
