The Oculus Rift is the favorite choice for serious VR enthusiasts. With the Rift, you need a powerful gaming PC for a great VR experience. At $599, it's a little steep but for the high-end performance and out-of-this-world experience, it's worth it.
The HTC Vive is the Steam VR headset made in collaboration with Valve, the makers of the legendary gaming series Half-Life. The Vive similarly requires a powerful gaming PC to operate and has a similar resolution as the Rift. To find out the best oculus quest 2 lenses adapter, you can browse the web.
The HTC Vive scored in its Lighthouse room tracking that enables you to move around with the headset on for a more immersive experience. However, it costs $200 more than the Oculus Rift.
Computers that don't meet the Rift and Vive's recommended specs might still run some VR games. But to get a good VR experience, expect to spend around $1,000 if you're buying a new desktop and maybe a little less if you buy a headset and PC bundle.
Oculus and Samsung collaborated to develop Samsung Gear VR as a lite version of the Rift. The Gear VR is simply a case where a compatible Samsung Galaxy smartphone is slotted in front of the lenses. The visuals are a little grainy, but at $99 what more could you ask for?
Then there is the upcoming Sony PlayStation VR scheduled to release in October 2016 in time for Christmas. The PSVR has the chance to go big too. It is designed as an accessory to the PS4 console and does not require a PC for its operation.
