ASUS – Gaming Desktop – Intel Core i7-9700F – 16GB DDR4-SDRAM Memory – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060-1TB Hard Drive + 256GB Solid State Drive – Iron Gray – Windows 10
PROS: First, this desk has an additional side wall made of semi-transparent acrylic, which is a great addition for you to design the PC individually. This is a great idea and is reinforced by RGB lighting that can be adjusted through Aura Sync. The aesthetic design of the whole case is fantastic!
I think the position of the power switch up and slightly to the side is excellent. I have easy access to the button, but I don’t accidentally hit it when I use the other previous connectors.
The included keyboard and mouse are quite simple (light and non-backlit plastic), but they do the job immediately. I think they are expected to be replaced by their own peripherals, but they are intended for a completely complete and ready-to-use experience.
Most specifications are respectable (no pun intended). The Intel i5 9400F is a fantastic processor for basic level games. Excellent choice with more than a lot of performance for the price. An SSD for the main unit is excellent because it destroys conventional hard drives at boot and load times. Gigabit LAN with WLAN 802.11ac means that it has the latest 2.4 and 5 GHz WLAN support. Bluetooth 5.0 is the icing on the cake.
Armory Crate software is quite good. The user interface has interesting information and is the center for customization and personalization needs, such as RGB controls.
Cons: My PC arrived with the CPU heatsink removed from the motherboard (!!), which appeared to be such that the person who assembled it did not have the quick-release plugs to remain locked. I found it changed to the weight loss settings. Fortunately, no damage occurred, but I had to reapply the thermal grease, as part of it was smeared in places where it would come into contact with the housing and components.
Finally, I think the air flow could be a little better in this case. Using an entry-level graphics card, air flow is more valuable for keeping things calm and maintaining performance. This case comes without an intake fan and only has an 80mm fan on the back to try to get close to the CPU.
Overview: With the previous generation GTX 1060, you could improve a lot with a configuration with an RTX 2060 graphics card. Still, with this configuration, you still get decent performance. My favorite game is Monster Hunter World and can easily handle the graphics of the game with a high and variable resolution enabled.
