Want to be a member of the PC Master Race, have a ton of cash to burn, but no time to run around for parts? Good news, rich person! Asus just dropped a complete PC package named the ROG Imperator—complete with the tower, monitor, and peripherals—that will totally make your peers jealous. The price? A measly PHP 184,900!

If you can swallow the tag, you’re definitely getting what you pay for. The foundation for the ROG Imperator is an Asus ROG Maximus VIII Formula Z170 ATX motherboard that offers killer looks, signature ROG features, and tons of expandability options for the future. Nestled in its LGA 1151 socket is the overclock-ready Intel Core i7-6700K cooled by a 360 mm AIO watercooling system candied up with RGB fans. Along with the Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080 8 GB graphics card and 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, the Imperator guarantees smooth operation across any kind of workload, whether it be work  or play.

Power delivery and cable management shouldn’t be a problem given the 750 W 80+ Gold fully modular PSU. Likewise, storage won’t be any trouble with the preinstalled 2 TB hard disk and 240 GB solid state drive. All that hardware is packed into a limited edition PH-exclusive In Win 509 ROG 10th Anniversary Edition case. The chassis boasts a tempered glass side panel so you can stare proudly at the RGB-laden innards.

As I said above, the ROG imperator comes with a monitor and peripherals, which like the main package are made for gaming. The bundled display is an Asus ROG Swift PG279Q with an IPS panel, 2560 x 1440 resolution, and a G-SYNC module tied to its 165 Hz native refresh rate. The peripherals are also all ROG-branded, including an Asus ROG Claymore Core RGB mechanical gaming keyboard with Cherry MX switches; ROG Spatha wireless/wired RGB gaming mouse; and ROG Sheath premium gaming mouse mat.

The beastly setup is available for order in the following stores nationwide: Complink, Concept Computers Iloilo, Davao Futurebright Enterprises, Dynaquest, Gaisano Interpace Cebu, JDM, Octagon, PC Express, PC Hub, PC Worx, Thinking Tools, PC QuickBuys, and Villman.
