Alienware makes its X51 computer compatible with Oculus Rift

Oculus Rift will undoubtedly be one of the hottest hardware items money will be able to buy this year but do you have what it takes to use this device on your PC? The system requirements are not that low – you need Windows 7 SP1 x64, an Intel Core i5-4590 processor or faster, a GeForce GTX 970/Radeon R9 290 graphics card or better, 8 GB of DDR3 memory or more and a HDMI 1.3 port as well as a few USB 3.0/2.0 ports to make the device function properly. Well, obviously many computers will be in need of an upgrade if they want to run Oculus Rift.

Alienware must have felt the same way with its X51 gaming computer and that is why the US company, now owned by Dell, has designed an updated version called X51 R3. The new computer comes with a quad-core Intel Core i5-6400 processor, GeForce GTX 970 graphics, 8 GB of DDR4-2133 memory, a 1 TB 7200 rpm hard drive, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, several SATA 3.0 ports, M.2, USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 and Alienware Graphics Amplifier Port.

The new X51 will sell for USD 1199 but Alienware has a special deal – if you buy an X51/Oculus Rift combo, the whole package will cost you USD 1599, which is nice considering that Oculus Rift will likely debut at USD 599 or even more.
