Asus Desktop Gaming PC with Quad-Core Processor
This formidable gaming rig is built with everything you need to jump into virtual reality adventures or the bustling digital cityscapes of open-world games. Its blazing fast GeForce GTX 980 graphics card is equipped to handle all but the most demanding of video settings and resolutions in new games. A 256GB solid state drive (accompanied by a huge 2TB hard drive) ensures everything loads up quick, while 16GB of RAM lets you smoothly run multiple applications at once.
Ample Storage Space
A spacious hard drive offers plenty of room for large computer programs, saved game files, and multimedia storage. A single terabyte (TB) can hold up to 17,000 hours of music—enough to play your library nonstop for almost two years without ever repeating a song—or 310,000 photographs, the equivalent of one photo every hour, every day, for more than 35 years.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up your computer and launch apps in mere seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space within your computer, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from computer bumps.
Speedy Data Transfers with USB 3.0
A USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port transfers files to and from your computer at more than 10 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.
Seamless Digital Organization with Cortana
Designed to keep you organized and informed, Cortana is a nimble digital assistant that works on every Windows 10 device. The program helps you set time-, person-, or location-based reminders, then pushes them out to your compatible PC, tablet, and smartphone simultaneously when needed. On compatible devices, Cortana also recognizes voice commands and lets you dictate emails with ease.

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.
