Have you been wanting to play your Steam library on your TV without the hassle of having to connect your computer to the TV? Well that time is almost here thanks to Steam and their new hardware that is finally available to preorder.
The Steam Machine has been long awaited and looks like it will finally be landing on October 16th if you preorder today. There is a limited quantity available so if you want to get your hands on one of the first units, you might want to head over to their website and put in your order right away.
Steam is offering four different pieces of hardware that you can purchase. The Steam Controller (pictured above) is first up with its unique touchpad input where the directional pad and right thumbstick would be. It will run you $49.99 to pick one of those up.
Second they have the Steam Link for sale. It will allow you to stream games from your PC to the TV via your home network much like the NVIDIA Shield Tablet already lets you do with their tablet. It will only cost you $49.99 as well.
Finally they have two Steam Machines that you can choose between. First is one from Alienware that will be powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU with 2GB of DDR5 RAM. This one is starting, keyword starting, at $449.99. The starting model will get you an Intel Core i3 processor and 500GB storage. You can upgrade that to a 1TB hard drive for $549.99. If you want a better processor the Core i5 with 1TB will cost you $649.00, and the Core i7 with 1TB of space for $749.99.
The second Steam Machine is the Syber which starts at $499.99. That one will get you an Intel Core i3 with an NVIDIA GTX 750 with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. The next model up will be a Core i5 with a GTX 960, 8GB of RAM, and 1TB hard drive. Finally, if you want to go all out, you can get their most powerful Steam Machine which will have a Core i7, 1TB hard drive, 16GB of RAM, and a GTX 980 to let you play games in 4K resolution.
