Can my PC run it?

Im thinking about buying a vive sometime. 

But my PC isent that vive suited.

Specs:

Processor:  I7 3770 8 Core 

Graphics card: Gtx 1050

Ram: 8GB

Also Steamvr Peformance test Shows that it is Capable. But my friend keeps saying it will be very laggy.

Re: Can my PC run it?

Your GPU is probably your roadblock here to being "ready". When you ran the test, did you happen to look at what it recommended you would need to upgrade to be able to run VR at an acceptible pace? 

 

Example:

I purposely ran it on an underpowered laptop so you can see what it is I'm talking about. I'd check these out before making the leap.

Hey @Anderko123Yeah, that's what I assumed based on your specs posted. Of course you know what they say about assumption and so I asked about the rest of the screenshot. That definitely seems to be your upgrade point. As it says in the port, you'll want to account for minimum game requirements. They do very from one end of the spectrum to the other. 

 

Remember, you can also run a test from the our Vive page as well for another test. https://www.vive.com/us/product/vive-virtual-reality-system/

Re: @SuperNikoPower

Also one last question. Where can i find those Base station mounts. Like in this video https://youtu.be/QHei7r6sMao?t=2m45s

We'll take you through the Vive system setup process, from setting up the various Vive components to setting up your play area with SteamVR's Room Setup.

Re: @SuperNikoPower

The wall mounts are included with the Vive system. There are a few different unboxing videos out there that show everything you get in the box. Smiley Happy
