Post news RSS Xotic Offering VR-Ready PC Builds

These five NVIDIA systems should handle the stress of VR gaming.

Posted by on


NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference (GTC) saw a number of announcements, one of which was a partnership with PC system builder Xotic. The partnership sees NVIDIA's high-end GPUs being used in five of Xotic's new PC builds that are being certified as VR-ready.

The systems contain mostly identical components, with major changes including the case and cooling configuration. But the grunt behind the builds includes:

  • Intel Skylake i5-6500
  • ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming
  • EVGA Superclocked NVIDIA GTX970 [4GB]
  • 8GB 2666MHz Kingston Fury DDR4
  • 1TB 7200RPM Hard Drive

The builds retail from between US$1,429 to US$1,729 from Xotic's website. The company is also offering a number of VR-ready gaming laptops at the same site, but they'll run you anywhere from US$2,169 to US$3,499.

Both Oculus and HTC are offering Rift-ready and Vive-ready system builds respectively, with the former bundling the Rift itself at a great price, and the latter only offering the systems themselves, but looking to create a headset bundle later down the line.

Just buy the GTX 970 or up to run VR.
Why overpaying? :)
