    Best VR Ready Build Under $2,500

With these ground rules to follow:


  • ■Do not go over budget.
    ■Use only Amazon OR Newegg to source parts.
    ■Use list prices only: coupons, rebates, bundles or any other limited-time offers will not be accepted.
    ■Do not include shipping or tax in your final budget.
    ■Do not include the Operating System, Monitor or VR Headset, Keyboard, Mouse or Gamepad (Steam Machine).
    ■Do not put your forum handle in the name of your build, and avoid odd capitalizations & symbols.
    Provide links to the Amazon or Newegg product pages of each component — we encourage users to use PCPartPicker's System Build for speedy construction. Do not post a link to your build, but rather please be sure to export as BBCode for a quick copy/paste to the forums.
    ■The mini-ITX must be in the m-ITX form factor and have WiFi.
    ■ VR builds must meet minspec for both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Good luck, and may the best builds win!

[quotemsg=18305443,0,2199259]It's that time again! Time to update the Best PC Builds! Once again, we are opening the field to user recommendations to get the best consensus for the absolute best of the best in each category. As last time, we're limiting the builds to price points, but this time we're also including VR builds and mini-ITX builds.

■Use only Amazon OR Newegg to source parts.
[/quotemsg]

It's interesting that this is no hardship. 90% of my parts purchases these days are from one or the other.
