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.
