    Gaming PCs are getting sexier all the time, but are they any better for it?

    That weird power supply hurts to look at...hopefully someone will figure out a better solution.

    Has a nice design, but the GPU is terrible for that price. If it had an R9 Nano, people might have actually bought it.

    The simplest answer to the need for 2 mains sockets is a "Y" IEC lead like this:-

    Why's it so big? The ML08 that HEXUS reviewed a fortnight ago shaves 400cc off the volume (12.66l for the asus vs 12.23l for the silverstone), and yet that one includes an SFX PSU inside the case. It is true that a 3.5" drive intrudes on GPU space in the ML08, but short 970's work fine and external hard drives are a lot nicer than external PSU's.

    I agree.
    I thought the ML08 was styled perfectly as a HTPC, so it would slide in unobtrusively.
    In your lounge room it would sit away and it can easily be fitted out with a array of hardware to make a better gaming machine.

    Plus this Asus stands proud, even though it is smallish, to me it jumps up and says "LOOK AT ME". Not my cup of tea, particularly at £1,500 and only 1 years warranty.
    And what is this with 2x power sockets, couldn't they have combined the leads into one (and just had 2x PSU switches if it was needed) But I am sure there are those out there who will love it.
    To each his own, because it is all the same difference. :-)

    I disagree. LEGO is damned sexy, not to mention superbly designed and engineered.

    However, this doesn't seem to be like LEGO.

    No no no, you misunderstand me, sir... something that *is* made from LEGO is indeed awesome. Something that merely looks like it, is just utter pants!!
