The recommended specs for an Oculus Rift compatible computer?

Oculus has published the actual recommended specs for a Rift-compatible personal computer

Oculus Rift CEO Brandon Iribe has recently spoken at the Code Conference, saying that a new gaming PC to go with the Oculus Rift would cost around $1500 - even if he hopes to see that figure soon fall to about $1000. Oculus has then published the actual recommended specs for a Rift-compatible computer: - NVIDIA GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater - Intel i5-4590 equivalent or greater - 8GB+ RAM - Compatible HDMI 1.3 video output - 2x USB 3.0 ports - Windows 7 SP1 or newer At the moment, almost no laptop can match the recommended specs, so high because VR requires a high frame-rate to avoid users getting sick.

Oculus product VP Nate Mitchell also suggested that the Rift is mainly Windows oriented as of now, as development for OS X and Linux has been paused. However specs will probably stay the same for a long time, ideally for the lifetime of the current Rift consumer edition. That will probably make them soon cheaper.
