CONCEALED IN DARKNESS, LETHAL IN BATTLE
ROG Strix GL12 is engineered to quench gamers never-ending thirst for extreme gaming horsepower paired with striking, unconventional design. It is powered by up to a factory-overclocked 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8700K processor (up to 4.8GHz full hexa-core), with NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics for boundless gaming experiences. System upgrades are effortless thanks to its expansion bays and an esports-ready hot-swap SSD tray. A transparent side panel coupled with customizable Aura Sync technology light effects let you express your gaming persona, inside and out.

DESIGN
DEFYING CONVENTION

ROG Strix GL12 draws inspiration from urban ninja and cyberpunk elements, cutting a modern, lethal, and powerful figure embodied with esports in mind. Sharp, chiseled edges and deep slashes across the facade reflect the scars of battle-hardened warrior; while the cyberpunk-inspired interwoven HyperStream design allows for optimal cooling during intense gaming marathons. When not in battle, the ninja-mask-like magnetic cover can be removed to reveal the hot-swap SSD tray and optical drive, and placed back on when it’s time to get into the fight. In addition, a menacing Iron Gray and glossy black color scheme, Aura RGB LEDs, and a glowing ROG logo give ROG Strix GL12 an unconventional look that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

My advice for what it`s worth -

Non-tech savvy
- buy this today! it`s a no brainer with those specs

Tech-savvy - Guessing you will have concerns about the quality of the mainboard, most likely generic PSU, airflow from case and speed of RAM (have I missed anything)

I like to think I fit into the tech-savvy category as l do have experience of building PC`s (thinking back to the days were HDD`s had pesky jumper settings on a IDE cable, grrr). I am very rusty in regards to the latest components, can`t keep up with it all tbh. My days of buying the weekly Micro Mart are well gone now

Absolutely, but I think it's good for new people to know this. When I got into PCs when I was 15 comments like that opened my eyes to the possibility of building a PC. Before that I'd bought a prebuilt unit at a stupid price, as most people do every day. A PC takes 1.5 hours to assemble and a child could do it.

For anybody wondering how this will perform, I have an Omen (bought 2 years ago for around £650) with a very similar spec.

I have upgraded the ram on mine to 16gb 3000mhz but otherwise it has i5-7400, 1060 3gb, 128gb SSD, 1tb HDD.

Mine will play Forza Horizon 4 on high at 60fps on 1440p. Witcher 3 at 1440p on medium/high, shadow of the tomb raider again on high/ultra 1440p and frame rate steady around 45/50 which I found fine for play and most other games at high. The only game that I had to drop to medium was the latest Wolfenstein as high was causing crashes, but that is a very demanding game and it still looked great.

So all being said, I think next time I will get a much more expandable and upgradable rig and plug it together myself - I know a bit more about it all now after a ram swap and adding a 2nd SSD but as my first venture in to pc gaming I have been perfectly happy with my pre-built for the last 2 years and with 2 young kids in the house my playtime is limited so I imagine I'll get another year or 2 before I feel the need to upgrade. If I hadn't been naive and bought a 1440p monitor I'd be laughing as at 1080p it would be even more capable.

Heck, I consider myself reasonably savy with 3 self builds and it takes me a fair amount longer. I would say that most are capable of building their own. At the same time calling this a terrible deal is hyperbolic and they seemed to go out of their way to make it look worse by including preowned items in their price up.

There are limitations like only having 8GB RAM, but for the price and the fact that it's a prebuilt, it's good value. Obviously paying more nets more performance, but it depends on one's budget.
Would have gone for this if it had some usb 3 ports. Shame.

It has 2 up front, and 2 at the rear.
I have no idea why anyone would question the quality of components in an Asus machine, in 25+ years of PC engineering I have found Asus to be one of the top, if not the top of the chain of PC related kit.
Also, the above list posted as an alternative, is not reallyas it has:
1. (as has been pointed out) is using warehouse/pos second user kit from various sources possibly requiring multiple delivery charges.
2 has missed at least one component.
3. doesn't include a 100% genuine copy of windows 10
4. is still not latest generation kit.
Given those facts along with the others already presented, i really can not consider it an alternative at all

Is the 56 really 50% faster than a 1060?
I think the prices you stated are a bit unfair because you are talking about second hand or heavily discounted prices.
You don't find any new 2600's for £100 or great quality mobo's for £50.
I just built a ryzen pc and it cost me £450 without the gfx card. So realistically you are looking at £650.

You could get the 1600 AF which is very similar to the 2600 but at 80-85£

Yeah that would be better than a second hand 2600 for £90-100.
But this pc is ok I feel.
The 8400 is actually faster than the 2600 if you don't oc it. Which many won't, especially with the wraith stealth.
You could always buy this, sell the 1060 down the line and buy a faster card for £150-£200.
Its not bad value imo and this is from someone who always builds his own.

I don't know man, I found it pretty easy as a 14 year old with no guidance apart from a 15 minute youtube video.
Sure there will be people who don't have any confidence in their ability to fit 8 parts together, which have slots designed so you literally can't put a part in the wrong area, but I think they're few and far between.

I actually think the build took me 1.5 hours but I put 2 for good measure. An adult should be quicker.
I know little about gaming computers but you do seem to get good prices these days,I was looking at gaming laptops over the last couple of years and they seemed so expensive for something that can be less reliable and overheat compared to a desktop,so unless people really do need a portable device and I bet many of them don't I would buy a desktop next and then when I could I would buy a newer better monitor in maybe a year or so while watching for a price to drop on those

it's not age it's aptitude, some people are technically minded some not.

You lost any credibility when you distorted your initial post with a list that included non brand new components.

The only non brand new component in my post is the mobo. Add £15 if you like for a new b450...lol....

It's not dishonest mate, I build PCs a lot. It's just facts. Every one of the parts i listed was brand new price from amazon/scan/box apart from the mobo, but by all means, add 17 to get an new MSI b450 pro from amazon, which is there right now, go and look if you like...Btw, it's a much better mobo than the one in this PC....

But grab this PC if you like. It will perform about equal to a PS4 vanilla in a lot of games. For instance Red Dead 2, it will dip to 20fps at lows in high graphics with an average around 35fps, which is in some ways poorer than the PS4 which manages a tight 30fps with ultra textures. Anyway, you clearly don't want to hear this, but it's the facts, it's a weak computer.

This is a garbage deal, nobody should be buying a 1060 in 2020.Edit: Some people have said these are used prices, incorrect, every component there is new apart from the motherboard. Switch it out for a new MSI pro if you like which is £68 on Amazon now, adding £18 to the overall, fully new build, which blows this prebuilt out of the water. If you have qualms getting an amazon warehous case...Then you're beyond help.


Any links to an MSI pro B450 for £68?I can see B450M but the lack of RAM slots is a killer

Sure there will be people who don't have any confidence in their ability to fit 8 parts together, which have slots designed so you literally can't put a part in the wrong area, but I think they're few and far between.I actually think the build took me 1.5 hours but I put 2 for good measure. An adult should be quicker.


If that's u in the picture then more like 40 instead of 14
