Sleek and Affordable
As far as budget PC’s go – the SkyTech Shadow featuring the AMD FX-8350 is the most friendly option for those dipping their toes into VR Gaming. The case is incredibly sleek and feel durable, its many intake and exhaust ports keeping every internal and a good running temperature.
This is in the top 10 most sold PCs on Amazon and for good reason. The value of this system can come very close to beating a self-assembled unit, but if you lack the know-how or desire to make your own, this system is the perfect rig for you. Unbox and play within minutes of unboxing.
HTC Vive – VR readiness
This is one of the best systems available on the market to get started with the HTC Vive. While this will not be the system that runs everything on Ultra, especially the more demanding titles, this PC will run the HTC Vive with very few hiccups. We played dozens of games and found the experience was perfectly fine and did not miss many of the ultra graphics settings.
The frame rate remained smooth, dipping occasionally, but barely noticeable during our VR gaming sessions.
Pro’s and Con’s
The simple black exterior houses tight wiring lit with LED lighting that can be a great accent piece in a gaming area.
The HTC Vive definitely needs hardware to back it up, so before you blow your cash on this cutting-edge device, we want to remind you to review the minimum specs required to even run this, let alone run everything on Ultra Settings
