Today’s Best Virtual Reality deals – April 3, 2016

Slim list this week. Two GPUs are holdovers from last week’s list, and we see MSI make the list with this R9 390 Gaming 8G dropping very close to its all-time low with one caveat, it’s out of stock. BUT Amazon will let you place your order anyways and it’ll ship when available. So, if you’re not in a hurry, it’s a great value. Last week’s best deal VR ready PC switches out with another Alienware PC. No headsets or viewers with this iteration, but if I see something drop I’ll push out an alert.
