Certified Rift-ready bundles

Oculus has officially blessed PCs that can handle the VR requirements for its AR specs.

The company said that the "Oculus Ready PCs," are created by Asus, Dell, an Alienware. Prices start at $949 for the Asus G11CD, with Dell's XPS 8900 SE and Alienware's X51 R3 close behind at $999. Those models provide a Skylake Core i5 CPU along with Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 graphics cards.

More powerful configurations include the Asus ROG G20CB and Alienware Area 51 desktops, both of which feature Core i7 processors and GeForce GTX 980 cards for much more. The area 51 will set you back about $1,500. Of course you could purchase these systems without a Rift included if you are waiting for your Oculus to be delivered.

Oculus has created special bundles that combine one of those systems with all of the items you'll need including sensor, remote, Xbox One controller the headset. The packages come with two games EVE: Valkyrie Founder's Pack and Lucky's Tale.

Beginning on Tuesday, February 16, you'll be able to pre-order the bundles through Amazon, Best Buy, and Microsoft's online store. The shipping date is listed as April 23 which is odd as the Rift is not expected to be delivered until July.
