For a decent experience, I would change a couple things from John's list.....
Minimum of 8 gigs ram (16 would be better)
Minimum Video card go with a GTX 1070.

Excellent point Jack, I was just reposting the minimum requirements.

I hear you John, the bare minimum specs would get VR working, but maybe not very well when you get into graphic intensive software. Especially the RAM, at 4 gigs, having windows use up most of that, and any other drivers and background tasks, there would be nothing left for VR thus Windows feeding off the swap file which would bring the system to it's knees and be annoyingly slow and choppy in VR.
