, this would be fine for general Vive usage but would be under the requirements for the Vive Pro. The 1060 is a pretty powerful entry level card and is able to handle the majority of apps you'll throw at it - it will struggle with more visually complex apps like Fallout 4 and Hellblade. If you have certain apps in mind, you may want to cross-check their min requirements before committing. 1070's offer an overall better experience but do add to cost and bulk.
