The best PCs for Oculus Quest 2 — which has been rebranded now as the Meta Quest 2 — and Oculus Link include the performance hardware needed to power the experience as well as the correct USB port for a proper connection between platforms. If you'd rather not go the way of a custom PC build, pre-built machines will get the job done. We've rounded up a bunch of the best PCs for Oculus Quest 2 and Oculus Link right here.

Bottom line

The Oculus Quest 2 (aka Meta Quest 2) supports Oculus Link, but you will need one of the best gaming desktop PCs for optimal results. Meta recommends at least a 4th Gen Intel Core i5-4590 or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X CPU, 8GB of RAM, and modern GPU from NVIDIA or AMD. Depending on the hardware in your specific PC, the Quest 2 will be able to hit either 72Hz, 80Hz, or 90Hz refresh rates. The higher the better in this case, which is what we're rounded up here as the best PCS for Oculus Quest 2 and Oculus Link.

The HP Omen 30L and the ABS Master ALI570 are both some of the best PCs for Oculus Quest 2 and Oculus Link. HP's PC has tempered glass and RGB lighting for a bold look, as well as plenty of configuration options and pricing levels. If you'd like to keep things within a certain budget, the ABS Master gets it done using retail parts that make it easier to upgrade in the future. Our review of the similar ABS Challenger (ALI598) has more information about the build process.
