Don't be fooled by the sexy case. I bought the NVidia 970 version of this rig about two years ago. When it worked, it worked reasonably well, but it was down about half the time. First the network card didn't work. A few hours online with ASUS support sort of fixed the issue, but I still had intermittent outages. Then Win10 couldn't update, preventing me from playing Forza 5. I spent DAYS online with a dozen different Windows support techs until one of them finally wiped my hard drive and did a fresh install. (I know that sounds like a Microsoft problem, but it was entirely the fault of the weird motherboard configuration.) Then I had a few months of relatively trouble-free gaming before the hard drive died. That in itself is "not unusual" according to the Geek Squad dude who handed back my broken rig after running all the diagnostics. But the number of combined issues added up to waaaay too much downtime for what was at the time an $1,100 PC. I'll never by ROG again. They and/or Best Buy should reimburse me for cost and for the days and weeks I lost to troubleshooting.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
