Virtual Reality Systems
Here I present the best Virtual Reality Systems for the price to get your VR headset up and running smoothly. It should be noted that after over a decade of PC building experience I recommend going with a pre-built systems simply because these days it's almost the same price to build them as it is to buy them with far less hassle.
The reason I recommend the Playstation 4 Pro over the regular Playstation 4 is that the increase in power is significant and helps some games that are optimized to do so run smoother in virtual reality. Outside of VR, most run smoother and you gain 4k output. Get the Playstation 4 Pro here.
As far as any other headsets are concerned such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive Pro, you will need Virtual Reality Systems that can handle the stress of virtual reality and deliver a smooth experience.
This list of computers changes every new generation of video cards and processors. I will give you three levels of options and keep it current.
Budget Virtual Reality System.
There are less expensive computers on the market that will run virtual reality, but cutting corners here could result in an uncomfortable experience for you and that is something I try to avoid. This computer will run most things very smoothly and is a good entry level computer for under $1500.
Performance Virtual Reality System.
This will run almost everything at a high graphical setting smoothly and without any discomfort. I recommend this computer for the price and performance. You can't beat it for under $2000.
High Performance Virtual Reality System.
The difference here is the processor speed and some higher quality components that make almost everything run at their highest settings. HTC Vive Pro owners will really get to appreciate their higher resolution on this machine for around $3000.
