VR offers a rather immersive gaming experience as you can imagine and this machine is optimized for both the HTC VIVE with Steam VR and Occulus Rift VR but the accessories and hardware for these are not included in the package and you’ll need to pay extra for them. You have the 7.1 Channel Audio and you will hear great sound if you connect decent stereo speakers. In the box you will get the desktop computer, USB Gaming keyboard and mouse, AC power cord and WiFi adapter and User Manual. You’ll enjoy features like the AMD Eyefinity technology for great immersive gaming with extreme multiple monitor set-up, DirectX 12 Gaming Optimized for better real time processing and less energy consumption. What’s missing here is an SSD which you can easily install as they are cheaper than before so the system runs much snappier overall. Even with the existing specs and features it is probably the cheapest powerful gaming PC for the price, so just because it is well under 1k don’t assume it is entry level or mid-range. You will get a year of warranty for parts and labor which is the standard for most computers these days and technical support for the life of the product (it is actually reported to be the best customer service out there).
