Over at The Tech Report is a new build log, taking you through the steps of building a VR Ready machine. The intent is to build a machine capable of giving you very good performance on a Rift or Vive, while leaving you with enough money to purchase said headset and accoutrements. If money is no object then by all means pick up a couple of Titans or 1080s, but you don't necessarily need to. As with our guides the components included are to give you a guide as to what you will need, if you have a preferred vendor you can substitute all you desire.
"The arrival of Oculus' Rift and HTC's Vive VR headsets is as good an occasion as any to build a brand-new PC, so we tapped MSI and Corsair to help us assemble a system worthy of those headsets' stiff system requirements. See how it all came together in our build log."
