Dell Xps 8900 - An Affordable VR Ready PC

Dell has a special edition of their XPS 8000 series which is Oculus compatible and goes for $1199.
On its own, the specific configuration is $1,199 in the US, although periodic promotions have dropped it to $999. Further, when ordered as part of an Oculus Rift headset bundle, the price drops by $200, and even if you've already ordered your Oculus Rift, you can log into your account and get a promo code for $200 off this configuration, or similar discounts on other VR-ready desktops from Asus or Dell's Alienware brand.

Specifications for the $1,199 price

  • PC CPU  = 2.7GHz Intel Core i5-6400
  • PC Memory = 8GB DDR4 SDRAM 2,133MHz
  • Graphics Card = 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 970
  • Storage = 1TB 7,200rpm HDD
  • Networking = 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Operating system = Microsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit)

Although at this price configuration, there is no SSD which is a little sad because you want an SSD in a gaming PC especially one you plan to use with Oculus Rift

On the upside, it's a decent set of specs for the price, and fine for everyday computing and mainstream PC gaming. The system interior, accessible through a removable side panel, has some room for expansion, including three hard drive bays (just one is used here), four RAM slots (two are filled with 4GB RAM modules), and two extra PCIe slots
