With this machine, you’ll be able to get the best experience VR has to offer. Apart from having an RTX 3090 graphics card (which is massively overpriced right now), you can’t do better than this machine.
Building Your Own Computer:
Why Build a computer yourself?
- It’ll be a little bit cheaper (NOTE: Currently this is not true due to the shortage in graphics cards. If you want a cheap computer, you’re better off getting a pre-built).
- It’ll have more longevity. Manufacturers tend to cut corners when making these PCs – often using lesser quality parts so it won’t last as long as a computer you build yourself.
Here’s the build I use:
|Processor (CPU)||RTX 3080|
|Graphics Card (GPU)||Ryzen 5 5600X|
|Motherboard||ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming|
|Power Supply||Phanteks AMP 750W 80PLUS GOLD|
|Cooler||Corsair iCUE H100i|
|RAM||Viper Steel Series 32 GB DDR4|
|Storage 1||Crucial BX500 SSD|
|Storage 2||Seagate Barracuda 2TB|
Now I do have to say – finding an RTX 3080 can be pretty difficult, because it’s pretty new to the market and it’s always sold out. I recommend being patient and trying to snipe it when it becomes available.
For computer cases, there are several options, just pick one that you like from Amazon.

EDIT: Shortage of PC Parts
As of now, there is a shortage of computers and PC parts, especially graphics cards. It’s cheaper to actually buy your own PC than to build one at this point – though I’ll update this post when that changes.
In case the computers are OUT OF STOCK, here’s what you should look for:
- At least 16 GB of DDR 4 RAM (if you want to be comfortable, get 32 GB DDR4)
- If you want to take advantage of the full resolution of the Reverb G2, then aim for at least an RTX 2070 graphics card. I recommend an RTX 3070 or 3080 though if you can get your hands on one. They’re frequently out of stock.
- CPU isn’t too important as long as it’s an i5 and above.
- Storage space is up to you.
