MSI X299 MEG Creation

Tailor-made for designers and content creators, MSI’s X299 MEG Creation brings maximum performance to Intel’s latest High-End Desktop. Today’s multi-tasking consists of considerably more than just browsing the web while working on a spreadsheet. Demanding power users are gaming while simultaneously streaming and then rendering videos for upload while chatting with fans. All of this can easily keep a system operating at 100% capacity for hours or even days on end and lesser systems just can’t cope. From the 13+1 phase VRM and triple 8-pin CPU power connectors to the fastest storage to the element explosion inspired aesthetics, MSI gives you the tools to create your own masterpiece.

Gigabyte X299 AORUS MASTER

Featuring a new fully digital 12-phase Smart Power Stage VRM with a fin array heatsink with triple the surface area for maximum overclocking potential. Let’s dive in and check out what else Gigabyte has added and updated!

Cooler Master SK650

Do you enjoy the tactile feel of mechanical switches but find the height of the keys too high? For some people, this extra height can be uncomfortable after a while and even cause wrist pain after a long gaming session. One solution would be to use a wrist rest but this isn’t always possible due to desk space or simply not being a fan of them. Well, thanks to Cooler Master’s new low-profile keyboard, the SK650, this can be a thing of the past. The SK650 has been designed with low-profile Cherry MX Red switches and coupled with extra slim keycaps which lowers the height of the keyboard and eliminates the need for a wrist rest.

ASUS ROG Swift PG27U 4K 144Hz HDR Gaming Monitor

Depending on your choice of games or game genera, you probably chose your monitor for its fast refresh or for its huge number of pixels. Competitive gamers tend to favor high refresh rates where every millisecond counts which hug the lower end of the resolution scale. If you like slower paced games with cinematic fantasy or dystopian landscapes, you probably want to see every jaw-dropping pixel in 4K UHD, but you won’t be getting more than 60 frames per second out of your monitor. And that’s IF you have a system with enough graphical muscle to even handle 4K resolution anyway. A lot of gamer’s compromise, a higher resolution like 2560x1440 or maybe an ultra-wide 3440x1440 and a refresh rate in the 100-120Hz range which provides a good middle of the ground approach.
