If you are in the market for a new gaming PC soon, you might be able to save some money on a Oculus Rift virtual reality headset at the same time. During CES 2016, Dell and its subsidiary Alienware revealed they will sell the Rift for $399, a $200 discount, if it is bought with one of the company's PCs that has been certified to run the headset.
The PCs themselves will be the Alienware X51 R3 gaming desktops or Dell's XPS 8900 towers. TechRadar reports:
"All together an Alienware X51 and Oculus Rift bundle will run you $1,599 (about £1,094, AU$2,273) and on top of the discount, the Oculus Rift will come with all the bundled software including EVE Valkyrie and Lucky's tale. Those who already pre-ordered their headsets will also get a $200 (about £136, AU$283) off coupon in February to buy an X51 or Dell XPS 8900 computer if they need a rig capable of powering the Oculus Rift."
You can also go ahead and pre-order your Oculus Rift-approved Alienware X51 PC right now, as it will be shipped first. Dell will then ship the Rift headset in March alongside the first pre-orders for the device.
