I don't even know when this finish.
Actually monitor is only I could really use for my PC, other award maybe even better are not so important for me.
But 4K monitor is ultra extremely important, I don't even need so expensive, but 4K 27-32" and flat panel are necessary.

Because this ASUS monitor are best specification I saw, but price is high as well.
4K-HDR-GSync-144Hz... all important specications gamers need together.
Even when 8K become standard and GPU power increase 10 times from now this PG27UQ will be useful as now people ask 100fps on 1080p.
Same will be for 7-8 years for 4K, because it's not 60Hz only.
I have 27" monitor, I never needed nothing bigger. First I tried 24", but after month I figure out it's small sell him immediately and bought 27".
People say 4K is best on 27-32".

I'm never going to say one company is the best, and just blindly refuse to use anything else. But every Asus product I have owned has been miles ahead of the rest in terms of build quality and reliability. Asus graphics and motherboards are the gold standard. Sure there might be one or two other options depending on what you are building, but even if there are, they are just trying to match the standards that Asus has set. The first Asus product I bought was the Direct CuII r9 290x, and I immediately regretted every previous graphics card I have bought. The next computer I built had Asus motherboard and graphics, and that has been my go-to starting point ever since. I have had a few clients specifically request MSI, AsRock, and others. I will do it if that's what they want, but I don't recommend it, and the difference in quality is... Appearent, to say the least. Even when the feature set is comparable, the materials are often lower quality, the design is lacking, or some other corners have been cut. If you want the features, quality, and design all in one package, you almost have to get Asus.

Asus have decided to celebrate their 30th milestone with a giveaway, see below on how you can get in on the celebrations.

You can get a chance at those prizes by clicking HERE

OCN'ers, be sure to get in that prize draw


Share your stories with OCN

In the spirit of this event, I think it would be good time to share some stories and images revolving around your favorite Asus products ! It would be fantastic if we could get participants or passers by to share :

1. What was/is your favorite Asus product you have owned and why ?
2. Build images, do you have builds featuring your favored Asus hardware ? If so then please share with all as we would love to see them. If not build images, we also love to see some of those pro shots of Asus hardware, I know you guys are out there

Good luck to all the entrants.

Not to be offensive but, I believe so. The celebration is for ASUS consumers after all. You have a few options when entering the contest, to start is a short test on building knowledge. After that you write a story of what your ASUS experience is as a consumer. Everything is points related. So sure you can enter, I won't try to discourage you.

I am really starting to feel my Oats as a long time member of OCN. Why did we go back to this system again?

Thanks for releasing an AM3+ bios for my AM3 board. Many vendors skimped out on this either to cut costs or to make old products obsolete faster.

You guys did a terrible job making your stuff break because this board I'm using is about a decade old. I'm upgrading now, don't worry.

P.S For those that don't believe me
