Oculus VR’s virtual reality headset is right around the corner. You’ll of course need the device and its accessories, but you’ll also need a PC capable of running it.

The PCs are not only capable of running the Oculus Rift, but also come bundled with the device and its peripherals, including a sensor, remote, Xbox One controller, and two games: Eve: Valkyrie Founder’s Pack and Lucky’s Tale.
