CPU good enough? Help!

I have an I7 4770 with 20GB of RAM. I know my video card needs to be replaced and have a 1070 coming but when I run the Steam VR test is states my CPU does not pass??

 

Help before I go spend MORE money please!

 

Thanks!!!

Re: CPU good enough? Help!

Im going to say your CPU is good enough if running at full/correct speed.  That processor is more than capable of running the vive and software.

 

Make sure your CPU isnt over heating and being throttled?

I use CPUID to see what the computer is actually running at, and then HWMonitor to see my temps.  Both are downloaded for free from that site.

 

EDIT:  Also make sure your running the test on a fresh reboot and nothing is running taking up CPU usage in the background.
