ASUS Republic of Gamers G20CB

Oculus Ready
The G20CB meets the recommended specifications for the Oculus Rift headset. It has undergone stringent tests to ensure that ports, firmware, operating system, and other features are up to Oculus standards - so you know that it's good to go once you hook it up to your Oculus Rift headset. Setting up is easy thanks to shortcuts and links to Oculus files and software. There's even customizable Oculus Blue lighting.
Quad-Core 6th-Gen Skylake Intel Core Performance
The G20CB features a 6th-gen Skylake Intel Core i5-6400 processor. Its quad cores can reach a base speed of 2.7 GHz and can be boosted to 3.3 GHz when needed.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Graphics
Built for an immersive gaming experience, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 arms you with industry-leading technologies including dynamic PhysX effects, CUDA, and more. Based on NVIDIA's Maxwell GPU architecture, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 provides optimal performance per watt.
DDR4 RAM provides speeds of up to 2.1GT/s - twice that of DDR3 - to give you highly stable performance. DDR4 is also more efficient, requiring just 1.2V, so you get 20% in energy-savings over DDR3. There's even USB 3.1 for double the data transfer rates of USB 3.0.
Active & Passive Thermal Design
The G20CB is designed with no visible exterior side exhaust vents to keep it looking sharp and clean. The passive thermal design takes advantage of natural convection with a hidden airflow channel that ensures quiet and efficient heat management. While the active cooling uses two internal fans to further enhance heat dissipation, making the G20CB ideal for marathon gaming sessions.
Customizable Lighting
The G20CB has a bold design that features a matte black finish, aggressive lines, and Mayan-inspired markings. Customizable lighting effects showcase up to 8 million colors across the chassis, reflecting the feel of any game you're playing to take your experience to the next level.
Republic of Gamers GameFirst II
Republic of Gamers GameFirst II is online game optimizing support with game-packet prioritization. Featuring two modes, GameFirst II EZ Mode lets you select settings to lower lag while Advanced Mode gives you full control. Either way, you can game up to eight times faster than just standard Ethernet, even with heavy network traffic. If you're using a wireless signal instead, the G20CB has built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi to deliver up to three times the speed of past wireless N connectivity.
Republic of Gamers AudioWizard
With a unique mix of hardware and audio tuning software, SonicMaster brings you right into the fight. Gunshots ring out, explosions reverberate, and even footsteps become auditory cues on the digital battlefield. Be immersed in battle whether you're using a headset or speakers. The Republic of Gamers AudioWizard sound processing provides an additional layer of audio enhancement with up to five customizable modes you can easily switch on-the-fly.
ASUS Aegis
The ASUS Aegis application lets you monitor CPU performance, memory usage, internet download and upload speeds, and also set temperature and voltage thresholds that the app automatically maintains.
Included Accessories
A USB gaming keyboard and mouse are included with the G20CB.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With it, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
