Don't do it!

 

I have 3 ASUS tablets, and the RT-AC68R router, but I seriously doubt I will EVER purchase (or recommend) another ASUS PC.

I'm happy when it works

Sent in for repairs for the third time in a year. The graphics card was replaced twice, but it feels like a stopgap until my warranty runs out

amazing pc

 

needs a windows 7 option its way faster on this computer.

Very quiet mine makes no noise at all. high speed i can play all the top of the line games/simulators maxed out gfx with no problems. 300fps. i have windows 7 installed on this machine and its amazing. windows 8 would not play games or simulators well

no eject button on burner have to eject via the menu and has windows 8 installed. easy switch to windows 7 ultimate. have to download windows 7 drivers by looking up the mother board drivers. that's the only pain but way worth it

Excellent System

 

I did a lot of research before purchasing this system and I couldn\'t be happier with my selection. I\'m a professional photographer and need to use the system for editing high resolution images using photoshop cs6 and various plug-ins. everything runs...

Available PCI ports?

 

I do not actual own this item yet, but I love ASUS and can only imagine that this computer will rock as well. I just have a question: Since there are no images of the inside of the tower, it is hard to get a read on how many various card slots are open...

Room for Improvement

 

Bought this PC primarily for heavy video editing. I can run the full Adobe suite with no problems, and rendering times within Premiere Pro and After Effects CS6 are blazing fast. As far as gaming is concerned, I was able to run GW2, SC2, and Deus Ex:...

16GB stock ram is great, and the 2TB hard drive gives plenty of space for all of my games, music, and video data. The new i7 processor is not a huge difference over the previous ivy bridge generation, but it is nice ; A ton of connectivity options....

The computer is noticeably loud. I would have given it a 4.5 egg rating were it not for this issue. After examining each of the components, I found the biggest problem to be the GPU fan. I temporarily removed it and the noise went back to a...

Okay, not great

 

I partially bought this computer thinking it would include the Asus Power Pack and Wireless Charger tray. I did not read the fine details on ASUS website that these features only come with special versions of the M51 computer. I bought the most...

Plenty of USB ports and monitor ports. One of the fastest CPUs to date - Intel Core i7 4770. 16GB Ram should be able to handle most things I throw at it. My 8GB Dell XPS handled the video editing fine, so should this. The UEFI bios gui is nice ; I do...

The fans are a little too loud for my liking. The chassis fan by default runs at 1200RPM and the system is about at loud at a running refrigerator or a typical loud customized pc ; I went into the UEFI bios and to my disappointment the ASUS Q-Fan...

locks up

 

I do a lot of photo editing. I use photoshop cs5 and lightroom 5. Also use the Nik software. Had computer just over a month now and already constantly locking up. It won't even restart. I have to use the power off to get it rebooted. Computer is junk.

Great Desk top Computer

 

I bought another computer brand and I got it straight from the factory and twice the computer did not work. Great quality control on their part. The Asus desk top computer worked right out of the box with no malfunctions. The computer is fast and even...
