    I did some searching and didn't find an official information thread on the upcoming Oculus Rift Pre-Order which should be open anytime in the beginning of 2016. This shall help us all with the ability to jump into the queue as quickly as possible and share our experience.

    For the full Rift experience, we recommend the following system:
    Video Card NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater
    CPU Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater
    Memory 8GB+ RAM
    Video Output Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output
    USB Ports 3x USB 3.0 ports plus 1x USB 2.0 port
    OS Windows 7 SP1 64 bit or newer

    I agree with very few short reviews on the new units its a hard decision.

    The 24 hour mark is here so be ready tomorrow. I will post the price and details as soon as I find out.

    Just preordered it and total after tax and shipping was $679.32 in CA.
    I faced lot of loading issues while trying to order it.
    It kept saying “Something went wrong. Please Try again.”
    When I kept trying and finally got a confirmation, I checked my CC and found out that I was charged 4 times.
    So be aware.

    Wow $600 + shipping.. And customs for some of us. That´s abit more than the expected $300-400. Golden opportunity for Vive to slip in $100 lower.
