Asus ROG Desktop PC with 3.6GHz Processor and 8GB RAM (Mfr. Refurb.)
Part of Asus’s Republic of Gamers line, this beefy PC packs enough wallop to handle resource-hungry games and graphically intense projects. A speedy quad-core processor and dedicated graphics keep everything running at a steady clip, and the spacious 1TB hard drive provides plenty of room for large files and media libraries.
Built for Gaming
Max out graphics settings and enjoy the latest games in lifelike 1080p Full HD without sacrificing buttery-smooth frame rates. The dedicated Nvidia graphics card houses over 1,000 processors, which work in tandem to handle media-rich tasks without bogging down the rest of the system.
Hybrid Drive: Fast Loading, Efficient Storage
Solid-state drives (SSDs) boot computers and load files quickly, but typically offer little storage. Traditional hard-disk drives (HDDs) can store huge files, but run slower. A hybrid drive gives you the best of both formats: its solid-state portion quickly loads startup files to rapidly boot the computer, and its hard-drive portion stores larger programs and files, such as games and movies. This configuration is not only faster, but also more energy efficient.
Speedy Data Transfers with USB 3.1
A USB 3.1 SuperSpeed port transfers files to and from your computer at more than 20 times the speed of USB 2.0, which is especially helpful when you have a gigantic project on a flash drive, or you want to backup all of your files to an external hard drive. If your connected device uses USB 2.0, the port can still move bits and bytes with no sweat at 2.0 speeds, thanks to its backwards compatibility.

ASUS was named for Pegasus, a symbol of wisdom and knowledge in Greek mythology. In addition to these two tenets, the company mirrors the winged horse in another significant respect: both entities have taken part in a series of epic journeys.
ASUS notebooks have lived on the MIR Space Station. They were the first to work in the thin, icy air atop Mount Everest. As fireworks exploded over the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics in 2008, ASUS servers directed the show. ASUS motherboards have probably even found their way directly into your home or office, as they’re present in one of every three computers and one in every two pizza delivery men. That’s a lot of ground for the Taiwanese company to cover in less than three decades.
