DEALS: Brand new, complete VR-ready PC for $720!





You can now get a brand new, complete VR-ready PC for $720 with free shipping!  The CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme VR GXiVR8020A has the following:


-  Intel i5-6402P 2.8GHz Quad-Core
- 8GB DDR4 RAM
- 1TB HDD
- AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB VR-Ready graphics card
- Genuine Windows 10 Home 64-bit
- 6 x USB 3.0 | 4 x USB 2.0
- includes Keyboard and Mouse
- free lifetime tech support






This is the most affordable brand new VR-ready PC I've seen so far, by a significant margin!  The 8020 been tested with both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.  The 8020 is an Amazon exclusive and is not available elsewhere.






Update: CyberPower also a similar VR-ready PC but with an AMD processor, also for $720:


The CyberPowerPC Gamer Ultra GUA4400 features the following:
- AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz Six-Core
- 8GB DDR3 RAM
- 1TB HDD
- Windows 10 home 64-bit
- AMD RX 480 4GB VR-ready graphics card
- 6x USB 2.0
- keyboard and mouse
- free lifetime tech support


The advantage of the AMD is a higher clock speed (3.5ghz vs. the Intel's 2.8ghz) and it's a 6-core while the Intel is a quad-core.   On the other hand, the AMD uses DDR3 RAM while the Intel uses DDR4.  In addition, the AMD PC has 6 USB 2.0 ports, and no USB 3.0 ports.  This is sufficient for the HTC Vive, which needs only one USB 2.0 port, but if you want to use the Oculus Rift, you'll need to add USB 3.0 ports (the Rift requires three USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port).


Whichever you choose, it's good to know that both are assembled by a reputable company.  CyberPowerPC won PC Magazine's 2016 Reader's Choice Award for Overall Desktops PCs.  Both come with free lifetime tech support.
