I currently own a Mac and I want to get the Oculus Rift and Touch, I am trying to find a cheap but still high-performing gaming PC, although I don't have a budget, I don't have a lot of money and I need the cheapest one possible for the Oculus Rift and Touch.

Cheap and high performance doesn't equate

You need to set yourself a budget,and see how good a pc you can purchase within your budget

Do you need a monitor as well?

To be honest if VR is what you're after buying a cheap gaming PC is not recommended.

It won't have the performance required to render multiple images at the high framerate required. If a decent framerate isn't given for VR it can cause nausea, not to mention dampen your experience somewhat.

Exactly what sort of budget do you have set out for this?

Look for the AMD's product as they provide more power in tight budget.
