Apple hadn’t earlier encountered the two most important demands, a high-end graphics card and help from specific gaming motors.
At WWDC Apple announced support for eGPU boxes, thus adding larger graphics cards to MacBooks. The first iMac Pro to be released later this year will also be equipped with internal hardware to support VR headsets with no extra hardware.
You have the necessary processor to run VR apps, a little new than a Mid-2015 iMac or MacBook.As long as you have 4 GB of RAM, your eGPU box with your Graphic Card of selection meets the minimum criteria.
The best thing for you to do right now is wait for the official release of macOS High Sierra, if your not a developer.
