ASUS Gaming Desktop PC Tower (Manufacturer Refurbished)
This desktop powerhouse is built to run the latest gaming blockbusters at high resolution, rendering huge spaceships and even huger explosions with a GeForce GTX960 graphics card. Meanwhile, 8GB of RAM lets you manage multiple applications or swarms of browser tabs, and a quad-core processor pitches in with Enhanced SpeedStep technology to manage demanding tasks.
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.
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 3.0
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.
