This week Maingear made a few new announcements.

The first of these announcements was the launch of the new Vybe desktop. It has been optimised for VR and general PC gaming, featuring high-end specs but also a price that Maingear says is “soft on the wallet” at from $1,000.

There are two versions of this desktop, the one that’s based on the Intel H110/ Z170 chipset and another that’s based on the X99 chipset, the later is priced at $1,600.

Here are the specs for those two models.
