This desktop is proof that you don’t need to spend over $1,000 to have a good, VR-ready PC. If you’re a new or casual VR gamer, the Dell G5 5090 would be a good entry-level option for you. It’s actually simple looking in its design, at least compared to other Dell desktops like those in the Aurora series. Still, there is a bit of flair with a blue-LED stripe and the round Dell logo to keep it from being too boring to look at it.
It’s smaller than the average gaming desktop, but still spacious enough to have enough room for expandability. There are two 2.5-inch slot, one M.2 slot, and one 3.5-inch slot. There are plenty of ports / connections as well located on the rear and front. The chassis weighs around 18.6 pounds and measures 14.5-inches x 12.12-inches x 6.7-inches (H x D x W).
There are some useful features like calibration controls that give users more control over their software and hardware environments, and Ace library science, which is an easy-to-use interface that links all of the various settings in a game library. This library makes it easy to access all of the information and details on each and every one of your games.
