TR readers jumping into VR are likely consulting our System Guide already, but some folks just want the convenience of a prebuilt, VR-ready PC. Oculus is catering to those buyers with its Oculus Ready program. That program already features PCs from Asus, Alienware, and Dell. Now, Falcon Northwest is joining the party. The company is introducing two PCs to the Oculus Ready lineup today: the diminutive Tiki mini-tower and the beefier Talon mid-tower.
While Falcon Northwest is probably best known for its infinitely tweakable custom systems, the two prebuilt systems it's introducing today keep things pretty simple. The Oculus Ready Tiki comes with a liquid-cooled Core i7-6700K CPU, a GeForce GTX 980 graphics card, 16GB of DDR4-2400 memory, and a 1TB SSD from Micron. That setup will run buyers $2699.
The Talon mid-tower keeps the Core i7-6700K CPU, but ups the graphics stakes to a GeForce GTX 980 Ti. It also comes with 32GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, a 512GB PCIe SSD, and four terabytes of mechanical storage. That box goes for $3099. Both systems come with a year of overnight service and a three-year parts-and-labor warranty.
