Built for high performance, this desktop system cuts down load times with a liquid-cooled 13th generation Intel Core i9-13900KF 24-Core processor, 64GB of 4800 MHz DDR5 memory, and a lightning fast 2TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 solid-state drive. At the same time, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card is designed to deliver high frame rates, stunning ray traced visuals, and smooth live streaming capabilities.

Connect 10 Gb/s compatible storage drives and other peripherals to the dual USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 ports, each of which can transfer 75GB of data in about a minute. There are also five 5 Gb/s USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports available in addition to one USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 port on the front panel. With built-in Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) support in addition to both a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port and a Gigabit Ethernet port, you can enjoy low-latency gaming and smooth 4K video streaming experiences. A wired USB keyboard and mouse set is included. The installed operating system is Windows 11 Home (64-bit).

13th Gen Intel Processor
The 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900KF 24-Core processor features eight Performance cores with a Turbo Boost Max 3.0 frequency of 5.7 GHz, providing the muscle for demanding applications and games while the Efficient cores handle background tasks.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Graphics
Based on the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, the GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card offers high performance to both gamers and content creators. Third generation RT cores deliver heightened realism with real-time ray traced lighting, reflections, and shadows while the fourth generation tensor cores accelerate artificial intelligence performance for supported creative applications and technologies such as DLSS 3. Livestream broadcasts are also streamlined with hardware encoding and AI-enhanced features.
Advanced Cooling Design
In addition to the MSI 280mm Liquid AIO CPU cooler, the MEG Trident X2 13th desktop computer includes a unique air baffle design that collects cold air to create stronger airflow to continually provide cooling to the graphics card.
Upgrade Ready
Up to 128GB of 4800 MHz DDR5 memory may be installed across four slots and there's a second M.2 2280 PCIe 4.0 SSD slot available for storage. You can also install SATA drives into the two 2.5" bays.
Windows 11 Home
A New Start Position
Windows 11 has been completely redesigned from its predecessor to emphasize productivity, creativity, and ease of use. The customizable Start Menu is now at the center of the taskbar and utilizes the cloud, allowing you to quickly find and access recent files, regardless of what platform or device was previously used to view them. The streamlined Start Menu design also lets you pin apps and recent files in addition to powering down the system.
Making Productivity a Snap
Multitask with speed and efficiency with the ability to snap apps side by side. Snap Layouts and Snap Groups help to keep your windows organized using different layouts that are designed to fully optimize your screen space, no matter its size and resolution. Windows 11 also remembers their positions, so you can resume from where you left off when selecting Snap Groups from the task bar, allowing you to switch between both individual applications and entire projects. Snap Layouts are also automatically restored when docking laptops with external monitors.
Microsoft Teams Integration
Stay connected with friends, family, coworkers, and clients with Microsoft Teams Chat integrated onto the Windows 11 taskbar. With a touch, you can connect to your contacts via text, voice, and video, regardless of whether they're using Windows, Android, or iOS devices. You can also communicate with those who don't have the Teams app installed using two-way SMS messaging.
Adapting to You
The Adaptive Input feature automatically optimizes the Windows 11 interface to however you prefer to interact with your device, whether it's using a mouse, keyboard, touch, voice, or handwriting.
Next Level Gaming
Windows 11 is designed to deliver smooth, immersive gaming experiences with DirectX 12 Ultimate providing realistic graphics at high frame rates while Auto HDR automatically adjusts your game's lighting and contrast for high dynamic range. DirectStorage technology streamlines data access to better take advantage of high-speed devices such as NVMe solid-state drives and directly from graphics cards without dragging down the CPU, which minimizes load times while helping to reduce artifacts such as texture popping. Topping it all off is Xbox Game Pass integration, which provides you with access to a massive library of games with a membership subscription.
Redesigned Microsoft Store
The Microsoft Store is rebuilt from the ground up for a streamlined experience when looking for content such as apps, games, movies, and shows. Apps downloaded from the Store have been tested for security and family safety. Android apps will also be available on the Microsoft Store through the Amazon Appstore and can be used directly on your PC from the taskbar or Start Menu.
