Oculus is really pushing out the announcements out from the Oculus Connect 2 developer conference, with the Facebook-owned VR giant offering Oculus-branded PCs from Alienware, Dell and ASUS.


It's all part of the 'Oculus Ready' program, where the PCs will be sold completely built and ready for gaming on the Oculus Rift, and they'll all be priced at under $1000. The Oculus Ready PCs have decent specs, offering an Intel Core i5 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290 video card.

The new Oculus Ready PCs will be made available during Q1 2016 when the Oculus Rift launches.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
