    Go to the Oculus store shopping cart and select the Download link.
    https://shop.oculus.com/en-us/cart/

    After you have ran the program you should see something like this.

    If your graphics card is older than the r9 290 or GTX 970 it will fail the test.

    If your processor is older than the i5 4590 it will fail the test.

    USB controllers listed as incompatiable.
    • Etron USB 3.0 Extensible Host Controller
    • VIA USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft)
    • ASMedia USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller
    • ASMedia XHCI Controller
    • Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible-Hostcontroller
    Some people have had luck disabling the failed controller and getting the USB test to pass. To do this go to Control Panel / Device Manager / Universal serial bus controllers. Right Click the failed controller and choose Disable.

    You can also keep them enabled just don't use them with the Rift.

    The Inateck USB controllers are known to work without issue. http://www.amazon.com/Inateck-Superspeed-Ports-PCI-E-Expansion/dp/B00FPIMICA

    My overclocked i7 3770K is faster in Single Thread Performance (what counts) then i5 4590 and should work without issue given that AVX2 is not required.

    Now I just need to upgrade my overclocked EVGA 750 Ti FTW (02G-P4-3757-KR). This video card should be usable until I upgrade as long as I turn the video quality way down or play games with simplistic graphics.

    Yeah I'm hoping my overclocked 2500k and 270x will let me play on lower settings. I have my doubts.

    I've seriously been considering picking up an EVGA 970 with ACX 2.0+ cooler.

    My laptop probably will be fine since it has a 970m 3gb and i7 2650 or something. My desktop the however has i7 3930k Asus 680, yet since it's a desktop should be more powerful then a laptop

    Oculus has stated that mobile graphics cards are not supported. Also, the 970M GPU is not even close in terms of performance to the desktop version which is the minimum requirement. So I would not count on your laptop beeing ready for VR.
