So, I did a cpu compare and the i3 won by a lot. The I5 is the minimum cpu for the htc vive, but since the i3 did better, would it work with vr? i3 cpu https://pcpartpicker.com/product/YqKhP6/intel-core-i3-8100-36ghz-6-core-processor-bx80684i38100 the i5 cpu https://pcpartpicker.com/product/7bNp99/intel-cpu-bx80646i54590

When dealing with minimum specs anything better then minimum is going to give better performance so yes I would go I3.
