=============================
Comments:
So-so deal on a solid system for entry-level VR.

Pros:
  • Solid system for entry-level VR that can easily be further upgraded if needed. Recommend OC RAM and maybe a graphics card if needed
  • Costco warranty and return policy
  • Good build history with ibuypower
  • Membership not required.

Cons:
  • Mystery motherboard. See specs above.
A caveat regarding the motherboard:
So there's some news about some motherboard manufacturers messing with the baselines that may result in the CPU drawing too much power [tomshardware.com] and potentially causing damage. AMD has said they are investigating but they have other failsafes to protect the chips.
HWInfo has a tool and discussion about this. [hwinfo.com]
