    I'm considering on waiting till black Friday for a VR headset and Gaming PC. So here's whats going on. I already know about a few black Friday sneak peak ad sites. But what I'm looking for is information about upcoming products. Is there anything new that I should keep my eye out for.

    Plus can someone tell me about major name brands for gaming PCs that will work with VR. I figure if I sign up for site I will be ready for black Friday ether for local stores or online rite from the main PC company's store.

    So please any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi Dawn1988!

    Both Rift and Vive have webpages where they show off VR-ready pre-built PCs.

    https://www.oculus.com/oculus-ready-pcs/
    http://forums.vrheads.com/e?link=htt...token=bF4ixtvF

    They also outline the recommended specs, so even if you don't like what's on display there, you'll know what to look for on deals sites. Hard to say what will be announced between now and November, but I think the current Rift and Vive should still be contenders.

    Hope this helps.

    Welcome to the forum @Dawn1988 !!

    Well let me get this strait, you are willing to wait until Black Friday 2017 (November 24th, 2017) or when it's in the place you are?

    Knowing about the country and even city you are living can give a clue about what could be the best for your region, not all brands are accessible in all countries, but basically you need to adapt your budget to the market, almost anything with 8GB of RAM, a good Graphics Card and from this and maybe last year will work good with VR.

    Good brands:
    ASUS, Razer, MSI, Acer, Alienware, Lenovo (Gaming), HP (Gaming).

    If I chose one brand and one model maybe the MSI GT83VR TITAN SLI Gaming Laptop, but that's simply too expensive (more than $3500) and it's not available in all countries anyways.

    MSI has some value priced models too! They give good bang for your buck, and are probably a good brand to go with, for gaming. Alienware and Razer are at the top, BUT you pay a premium for those brands, MSI has models in all price ranges.


    Cale's suggestion to check the Oculus and Vive "Ready" pages is a good one!
