Oculus announced a collaboration with PC manufacturers Alienware, Asus, and Dell to bring a line of “Oculus Ready” PCs to retailers alongside the Oculus Rift’s debut in early 2016. These systems were described by Oculus as a “high-performances PC optimized for the Rift,” with each of the models optimized for Oculus Rift at the recommended system requirements for the headset.

The line of “Oculus Ready” PCs will include options from Alienware, Asus, and Dell: the cheapest model from the lineup so far comes from Asus at $949, while the rest of the systems from Alienware and Dell are being offered starting at $999.
