We've already told you about the awesome desktop peripherals that will upgrade your gaming sesh. Now we'd like to introduce you to something that deserves to be the centerpiece of your gaming setup.

Here's the ASUS ROG G550JK, a hardware beast that gives more points to the PC side in the great "PC vs. Console" debate:

A confident proclamation, yes, but we assure you that it has the goods to back that up. This is one gaming notebook that even the hardcore, walang tulugan gamers will approve of, especially when they learn about its game-tastic features like...


ITS TOP-NOTCH BRAINS

And by brains we mean a combo of a top-of-the-line 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and up to 16 friggin' GBs of RAM. That should be more than enough to handle the processing needs of even the most demanding of games, like Crysis 3.

We reckon it will also be able to run upcoming games nicely, like the one below (which features a hot, parkour-ing chick):

But if you're going to take a break from gaming, all that power will make non-gaming things like multi-tasking, Full-HD video viewing, and graphic design via programs like Photoshop and InDesign faster and easier.

But of course, this laptop will suck balls if it doesn't have a great video card so...


ITS POWERFUL MOBILE VIDEO CARD

Under the ROG G550JK's hood is a video card standard laptops can only wish to have: the GeForce GTX 850M, which belongs to NVIDIA's stable of high-end laptop GPUs (graphics processing unit). With 4GB of video RAM (or VRAM), it will provide the needed juice to power your PC games' eye-candy requirements.

How well can the GTX 850M game? We're talking about getting over 30FPS (frames per second) with games like Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Battlefield 4 on Full-HD resolution and using high visual settings. Say goodbye to graphics that take forever to load and angry "P*%@, ang lag!" hirits!


ITS MULTI-WRITE OPTICAL DRIVE

Call us old school, but we like the fact that the ROG G550JK still has an optical drivesomething that its anorexic ultrabook bros have ditched. While more and more games, like Diablo III and those on gaming portals like Steam, can be downloaded, having this feature is still a nice back-up plan. Hey, it's not as if we can be proud of our country's Internet speeds, right?

And the one inside the ROG G550JK isn't the cheap, run-of-the-mill type. It can read and write DVDs and Blu-ray discsperfect if you plan to make digital back-ups of your files. Just don't use it to channel your inner Captain Jack Sparrow, oki? #IfYouKnowWhatWeMean
