[TechCrunch]CyberPowerPC's $499 Oculus-ready AMD PC is now available

hree months ago AMD and CyberPowerPC announced a joint collaboration that would have the latter build an Oculus-ready gaming PC around the former's hardware, and sell it for $499 when purchasing a Rift headset at the same time. If you've been waiting for that relatively low-cost PC to appear, it is now available.

"Today AMD, Oculus, and CyberPowerPC are delivering on the promise made at Oculus Connect 3 with the immediate availability of the Gamer Ultra VR Desktop PC. Affordable VR gaming is now a reality thanks to a wildly low $499 price tag when bundled with an Oculus Rift through our retail partners Best Buy and Amazon.com," AMD stated in a blog post.

At the time of this writing, only Best Buy appears to be carrying the specially priced Gamer Ultra VR system. AMD provides a link in its blog post to the system's listing on Best Buy and not to Amazon just yet, and a manual search at Amazon did not yield any results.

In any event, the Gamer Ultra VR pairs an AMD FX 4350 CPU clocked at 4.2GHz with a Radeon RX 470 graphics card. Other specs include 8GB of DDR3 memory, 1TB hard drive (7200 RPM), DVD burner, and gaming peripherals (mouse and keyboard.

The system is shoved into a gaudy case that looks like it is made from plastic. AMD and Best Buy list the system as having three USB 3.0 ports and seven USB 2.0, and we assume there is HDMI connectivity.

-RX 470

Minimum spec does not equate to a good experience especially where fps is concerned

Can be overclocked to be better than a stock 480. Guessing you wouldn't be saying that about a 480.

This. Just a case of people trying to go cheap and not doing their research. Running at anything other than 90FPS on the rift is going to give those susceptible to motion sickness just that. At the very worst, you should run it at a constant 45FPS and use async reprojection, but even that will give some motion sickness. 470/480 is just asking for problems.

Before buying a Cyberpower PC or IBuyPower be sure to FULLY read the TOS and the fine print. If you do buy from them be sure you check your boxes for everything right down to the screws and PCI plates, cause your warranty begins the moment you CCard makes the payment. IF it takes 2 weeks to get your build then you lost 14 days of the initial 30 days to claim anything missing or possibility of returning. And yes you will pay to return.

Again some good many bad from these companies. Check the Forums...

FX-4350? Really? Ryzen is a month or two away, only the most uneducated folks would buy this.

Also, wouldn't RX 470 be heavily bottlenecked y the CPU here? Enjoyable VR experience this is not.

LOL FX-4350? enjoy the slideshow I've seen core 2 quad's for less than 60 bucks that outperform those. This looks like a vomit fest waiting to happen theres a reason you need high framerates for VR.
