Best gaming monitor 2019: Top 1080p, 1440p and 4K HDR displays

If there's one thing you shouldn't skimp on when it comes to upgrading your PC, it's your gaming monitor. After all, there's no point spending buckets of money on the [block id="604467" title="Best graphics card"] you can afford and then not having a good enough screen to show it off. You don't even have to spend very much in order to get a great monitor…

Feature: The key question

Best gaming keyboard 2019: Top mechanical and membrane picks

With so many keyboards to choose from these days, finding the best gaming keyboard can sometimes feel like trying to find a needle in a haystack. As well as deciding whether you want to get a membrane gaming keyboard or a mechanical gaming keyboard, there's also the question of how much do you want to spend and, if you decide to go down the mechanical…

Asus TUF Gaming K5 review: All hail the mech-brane

You've heard of membrane keyboards. You've heard of mechanical keyboards. You've probably even heard some keyboards described as 'membranical', which (aside from being a crime against the English language) are the kind of hybrid gaming keyboards you might consider buying if you're unsure whether to go full CLACK with a proper mechanical one. The Asus TUF Gaming K5 falls into this latter category, although Asus…

Best gaming mouse 2019: Top wired and wireless mice

With so many gaming mice to choose from these days, trying to find the best gaming mouse for you and your budget can sometimes feel like a bit of a nightmare. While some are perfectly content to simply buy the best wired gaming mouse or the best wireless gaming mouse known to man, others may prefer to prioritise things like the shape, size and weight…

Feature: ...with a not so super slim price

Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX531 review: A super slim Nvidia RTX gaming laptop

If you've ever had to lug your laptop around all day, you'll know the importance of having one that's thin, light and doesn't kill your shoulders after spending eight to ten hours in a backpack. I certainly do, and let me tell you, hauling around anything over 2kg for 8-10 hours everyday is absolute murder on the old spine. At 2.1kg, the Asus ROG Zephyrus…

Asus ROG Strix Scar II review: RTX on the go

Nvidia's first crop of RTX gaming laptops are finally here and the first one to slide across my desk is Asus' ROG Strix Scar II GL504GW. Packed with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM and one of Nvidia's new RTX 2070 chips, this 15.6in laptop is primed and ready to take full advantage of its 1920x1080 resolution display and 144Hz refresh rate, but…

Feature: The BFG of gaming monitors

Nvidia BFGD: Everything we know about their Big Format Gaming Displays, including price, specs and release date

Nvidia's BFGDs (or Big Format Gaming Displays, to you and me) are no longer going to be called BFGDs. Instead, as of January 2019, these massive 65in gaming displays are now part of Nvidia's wider G-Sync Ultimate family, which also includes their significantly smaller (but just as pricey) G-Sync HDR monitors such as the 27in Acer Predator X27 and Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ. Why the…

Feature: Beam me up, Asus

CES 2019: I take it back, the Asus ROG Mothership is the maddest gaming laptop I’ve ever seen

The Asus ROG Mothership is a preposterous piece of technology. I know I said earlier in the week that the Acer Predator Triton 900 was the maddest gaming laptop I've ever seen, but this desktop replacement really takes the biscuit. Not only does this huge great thing need a kickstand to prop up its 4.7kg chassis, but its keyboard can also be folded in half…

The Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ 4K G-Sync HDR monitor is getting a 20% discount this Black Friday

In case you hadn't noticed, early bird Black Friday deals are in full swing at the moment, and Asus have just announced a biggie that will almost certainly get UK monitor fans all aflutter come this time next week.

Feature: A very swift way to empty your bank account

Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ review: 4K HDR has arrived, but good grief, HOW MUCH?

When I saw the Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ for the first time back in May earlier this year, I thought the future of monitors had finally arrived. After more than a year of waiting, false starts and simply not being able to have as much fun as our console box friends with their fancy pants 4K HDR TVs, both the PG27UQ and the Acer Predator…

Asus ROG Strix GL12CX review: The Core i9, RTX 2080 monster PC

It's not often I have particularly strong feelings about PC cases, but man alive there's a lot going on with Asus' new ROG Strix GL12CX desktop. You've got your swishes, your slashes, your grilles and your grates, matt versus gloss versus RGB lighting, and even a full-blown chasm thanks to its hot-swap SSD bay. It's a lot to take in, but provided you can get…

Feature: One TUF customer

Asus’ new TUF Gaming FX705 might have solved the great gaming laptop display problem

Until recently, Asus' TUF brand was reserved for its heavy-duty, military grade motherboards. Now, however, Asus have repurposed TUF for a new line of entry-level gaming doodads - not quite as swanky as its classic ROG series, but tougher and better built than your typical budget fare. To that end, Asus have announced a new pair of TUF Gaming laptops today, the 15.6in FX505 and…

Hands on with the world’s thinnest gaming laptop, the Asus ROG Zephyrus S

In the distant past of four or so years ago, buying a gaming laptop was simply a cooler, sexier way of saying you're getting a desktop replacement. They were huge, monstrous great things with often chunky, off-the-shelf chassis shells that would break your back almost as soon as you clapped eyes on one. That's just the way things were. Then, in the hallowed year of…

Ballistix get TUF with new RAM for Asus motherboards

Some motherboards go in all for LEDS; others, like Asus' TUF motherboards, opt for a more rugged, industrial kind of look – which can make buying RAM for the latter a bit of a nightmare if you can't stand the idea of blinking rainbows or, heaven forbid, even the smallest dash of colour interfering with your PC's serious military vibe. Well, today I bring good…

Feature: Anything but the B-team

Asus ROG Strix B360-F Gaming review: A great foundation for Intel Coffee Lake PCs

When Intel first introduced their 8th Gen [block id="637401" title="Intel Coffee Lake"] CPUs, anyone looking to upgrade their processor only had a single choice of motherboard chipset: the rather expensive Z370. Mercifully, Intel have now expanded their 300-series family to encourage budget builders to make the jump too - and the B360 chipset is one of them. To find out if it's any cop against pricier…

Feature: Zero to scar-faced hero

Hands on with Asus’ MOBA and FPS-friendly Hero II and Scar II laptops

The phrase "mid-range gaming laptop" often seems a bit silly, considering that even this tier – in theory the most sensible one – is still occupied by mad, distressingly angular notebooks costing as much or more as a 4K-ready desktop. That said, there’s certainly a gap worth aiming for between bulky, plasticky entry-level models and the swish but even more punishingly expensive high-end. This is…

The best bonkers case mods at Computex 2018

This year’s Computex will probably be remembered for both AMD and Intel’s duelling “Mine’s got more cores than yours, pal” processor announcements and the conspicuous absence of the new [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] GPUs. But if there’s one thing that nicely encapsulates the show as a whole, it would be the assortment of mad custom case designs on display. They're the logical conclusion of where,…
