Pros: Looks sleak

Cons: Motherboard will not recognize either GPU or integrated graphics ports. (blinking at 2-second interval, what happened to diagnostic codes on mobos?) Pulled the GPU out to test onboard graphics. Computer is still not posting to monitor at all via HDMI or Display Port. As many previously have mentioned, I had to snip the case where the GPU ports come out the rear just to get the HDMI / Display Port cables to connect pin deep. I'm hoping I can send in just the motherboard for replacement, but may have to go directly to ASUS. Once this has all been cleared up, I will update my review.

Overall Review: I feel the point of buying a pre-built is so that you do not have to assemble it, but here I am. removing non-critical components simply trying to get to BIOS. Pretty frustrated, but I'm new to the pre-built world and maybe my assumptions need to be adjusted. Do they test the unit before shipping?
