Looking to build your own PC, but don't want to deal with the hassle of part compatibility? Want to just bring your new rig home, plug in a few simple parts then turn the whole thing on? Do you want water cooling, without the hassle of setting it up? Micro Center has a solution for you:

Introducing ASUS Barebones PCs!

ASUS Barebones PCs come partially pre-built, with the power supply, processor, motherboard, and CPU cooling already installed, saving you the time and effort of compatibility checks and assembly. All you need is storage, some RAM, and a GPU and you're ready to game with the best of them!

They're also fully customizable, so if you do decide that you want to upgrade one of the pre-installed components, there's nothing preventing you from swapping everything out.

Our ASUS Barebones systems come in two styles:

ASUS ROG Strix GA15DK-MH501 - $999.99 $599.99

The ASUS ROG Strix GA15-DK-MH501 is built in the stellar ASUS GA15 case, a case designed with cooling in mind thanks to an aerodynamic chassis and widened vents. Inside you'll find the ASUS ROG B550 motherboard pre-fitted with an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor all powered by a 750 watt 80 plus gold power supply. This barebones system is practically begging to be paired with 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 500GB M.2 NVMe, and the Radeon 6700 XT.

Quick Specs:

  • AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7GHz Processor
  • ASUS ROG Strix B550 Motherboard
  • ASUS GA15 Computer Case - Black
  • ASUS GA15 Heatsink
  • 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold Power Supply
  • 1TB SATA Hard Drive
  • Windows 11 Pro

ASUS ROG Strix GA35DX-MH700 - $1299.99 $799.99

The ASUS ROG Strix GA35DX-MH700 takes everything that makes the GA15DK above great and then cranks it up to 11. The GA35DX case is a slightly larger case, but that size allows it to stay quieter and cooler thanks to deliberate vent placements. Peek inside and you'll find an ASUS X570 ROG Strix motherboard and AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU, fully cooled by a pre-installed water-cooled AIO, keeping this absolute powerhouse of a CPU running at peak performance. Fill the rest of the build out with 32GB of RAM, a big M.2 NVMe stick, and cap it off with the unmatched power of an AMD 6900 XT GPU.

Quick Specs:

  • AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3.8GHz Processor
  • ASUS X570 ROG Strix Motherboard
  • ASUS Wind Shear Chassis - Black
  • ASUS ROG Strix 240mm RGB Water Cooling Kit
  • 1TB SATA Hard Drive
  • 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold Power Supply
  • Windows 11 Pro

Both PCs are built into ready-to-carry cases, so you'll be esports ready, whether you're at home or on the road.

And right now, both of the ASUS barebones systems are $400-$500 off!
