Oculus VR partner with hardware manufacturers to create “Oculus Ready” PCs


As more news comes out of Oculus Connect 2, which is streaming on Twitch right now, Oculus VR just released details of partnerships with PC manufacterers to create “Oculus Ready” PCs. 

So “everything just works”, you basically need my exact PC build: an Intel i5-4590 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GTX-970 or AMD 290 video card.

Oculus VR are partnering with manufacturers like Dell, Asus and Alienware, to create machines that run the Oculus Rift without any hassle – they will even have a lovely little logo to signify their compatibility.

Pricing will apparently begin at under $1000 – which is less than I paid to build my own, dammit – and all will use Nvidia and Intel hardware.

Would you be interested in a ready-built PC just so you can enjoy hassle-free VR, or would you rather just upgrade your rig? Let us know in the comments.
