Get the full VR gaming experience in a compact build with the MSI Trident Gaming Desktop Computer. Connect your Oculus Rift or HTC Vive headset to the front VR-Link HDMI port and use the "One-Click-to-VR" button to quickly optimize your system for VR.

The MSI Trident lays horizontally, but it comes with a stand so you can set your Trident up vertically if you're tight on desktop space. You can further customize your Trident by utilizing the MSI Mystic Light feature. Mystic Light allows you to select from a color palette to match your system's design. You can also choose from a variety of modes.

The system is powered by a 6th Gen Skylake 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5-6400 quad-core processor. It also has 8GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card with 3GB of GDDR5 VRAM, 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, HDMI, USB 3.0 Type-C, USB 3.0 Type-A (one of which supports Super Charger 2), and USB 2.0 Type-A. Windows 10 Home is the installed operating system.

MSI Trident

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards can deliver up to a 40% increase in performance over the previous generation. This changes mobile gaming, allowing you to max out your game's visuals settings so you can enjoy it at its best. Furthermore, 10-series graphics cards are VR ready so plug in your favorite headset for a new computing experience.
NVIDIA VR Ready
VRWorks Graphics includes a simultaneous multi-projection capability that renders natively to the unique dimensions of VR displays instead of traditional 2D monitors. It also renders geometry for the left and right eyes simultaneously in a single pass.

VRWorks Audio uses the NVIDIA OptiX ray-tracing engine to trace the path of sounds across an environment in real-time, fully reflecting the size, shape, and material of the virtual world.

NVIDIA PhysX for VR detects when a hand controller interacts with a virtual object, and enables the game engine to provide a physically accurate visual and haptic response. It also models the physical behavior of the virtual world around the user so that all interactions -- whether an explosion or a hand splashing through water -- behave as if in the real world.
NVIDIA G-SYNC Ready
When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, which is especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
Quad-Core 6th Gen Skylake Intel Core Performance
The MSI Trident 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.
802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 4.2
Get Internet connectivity with 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi, which enables you to connect to the 5 GHz band for faster speeds compared to the 2.4 GHz band. You'll also be able to pair compatible wireless peripherals to this system with Bluetooth 4.2 technology and free up its USB port for other devices.
USB Type-C
The USB Type-C interface features a reversible connector so you can plug in the cable in either orientation. Furthermore, since it adheres to the USB 3.0 standard, you'll be able to transfer files at speeds of up to 5 Gb/s.
Mystic Light
Customize your MSI Trident with RGB Mystic Light LEDs. You can select any of the colors from the palette to match your system's design. Choose from different color effects, such as Breathing, Gradient, Gaming, or Music modes to match any environment.

Windows 10

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.
Cortana
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.
