Looking to upgrade my Dell Vostro 470.

Hi, I'm looking to get my PC VR Ready, I currently have a Dell Vostro 470 with a GeForce GT 620, and an I-5 3450 @ 3.10 Ghz. I am fairly sure I have a 360W PSU, last time I checked, however I don't remember exactly, as I haven't checked in a while. I've heard the AMD Radeon RX 580 is a good card, however, I'm looking to make this as inexpensive as possible.

Thanks in advance.

VR Ready requires GTX 1060 minimum.  360W power supply is too small.

RE: Looking to upgrade my Dell Vostro 470.

Minimum isn't going to be acceptable for much VR -- the minimum CPU suggested is an i5-4590, which this system won't take.  And a 1060 is going to be borderline - the GTX970 is the recommended GPU (meaning a 1070 in current terms).

If you really want to do VR, seriously consider buying to building a new system -- it'll wind up cheaper than upgrading everything you'll need on this one.  If you're trying to keep the price down, built on an AMD R5 or R7 CPU platform - but don't skimp on the GPU (1070 or R580 minimum), power supply (750W or better), RAM (16G) or drive (M.2 NVMe).
