  1. Asus is showing off plenty of ROG-branded hardware at this year's Computex, including a desktop, notebooks, motherboards, and graphics cards. The company's CG8490 PC features Intel's new six-core i7-980X processor, 12GB of RAM, and a pair of overclocked Radeon HD 5870 graphics cards. Mobile gaming rigs include the 15.6-inch G53 and 17.3-inch G73Jw, which support 3D Nvidia graphics, USB 3.0, up to 16GB of RAM, as well as Intel's Core i3, i5 and i7 processors.

  2. At first, I thought it was something related to Alienware, haha.
    Thats a very similar case.

    Yeah, I suppose it is quite reminiscent of an Alienware chassis eh?

    It does look a fat alienware computer but from what the picture looks like its a solid build with fairly high quality materials, Reckon that could be quite the beast especially with water calling.

    i think that case is cool. It looks like Mechs should start rolling out of that hatch on the front - either that or it goes on a cylons shoulders. Top notch and very pretty. Probably an *** to carry around tho :)
