The pre-orders for the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset are finally open to consumers with a price tag of $599 and will require a fairly high-end gaming rig to get the best optimal performance of what the Rift has to offer.
Now, to make sure VR fans meet the recommended specs, Oculus has partnered with Asus, Alienware, and Dell to offer a lineup of ‘Oculus Ready’ PCs that will ensure a great experience with the Rift–and best of all, you’ll be able to get a combo deal that bundles an Oculus Rift headset with an ‘Oculus Ready’ PC in February starting at $1,499.
While specific details aren’t available on what each ‘Oculus Ready’ PC system offers, they will be designed to meet the company’s recommended specs:
- Graphics Card: NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD R9 290 equivalent or greater
- Processor: Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
- Memory: 8GB+ RAM
- Output: Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output
- Input: 3x USB 3.0 ports plus 1x USB 2.0 port

According to Oculus, if you already pre-ordered the consumer Rift, you’ll still be able to take advantage of an ‘Oculus Ready’ PC at the “special bundle price” without changing your Rift ship date. Stay tuned for more information on the latest ‘Oculus Ready’ PC offers, as more details develop.
