Within the enthusiast community, high end systems are generally aimed at either performance tuners or hardcore gamers. These two camps buy the bulk of high end hardware, as their hobbies often require having the latest and fastest in order to stay ahead of the competition. These two camps are not mutually exclusive, however, in fact there is a large overlap of users who fit both categories. Especially with the increased accessibility and ease of performance tuning, the gap between both sides is constantly shrinking. It is for this very reason that the Republic of Gamers line from ASUS was developed, so new features can be incorporated to address the requirements of enthusiasts.
