Bruh gotta move from my mom's house to my dad's house and I doubt a Windows Surface RT is going to cut it, especially when I'm often playing with friends and etc. :^)

Main PC: Intel i7-860 and Asus P7P55D-E LX (both for 15$) | Mismatched 7GB | WD10EZEX | ZOTAC GTX 1060 3GB | Antec EA500 (20$)

These small boxes are great. I have a network tv tuner so having something with a little more horse power than a firetv stick really helps media play back. and the Small form factor makes it right at home behind a tv.  Also it has the required horse power to take on a lot of couch gaming so there's no need to grab a console :D

System CPU : I5 3570k @ 4.7Ghz Motherboard : Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 RAM 32 GB Vengence CL9 @ 1600 GPUs ASUS R9 290 DCUII & MSI TwinFrozr R9 290 in crossfire Corsair Air 540 Storage SSD1 Kingston V300 240GB SSD2 OCZ Agility 4 120GB PSU Coolermaster Smart Series SP-850 Out of date

The Zotac zbox is a great looks alternative to a console for my family to potentially use in our living room. I hope to suprise them with one for christmas!

Now don't get me wrong i do love Full and Mid tower builds but for a rendering PC i don't have the room for this is where Zotac have got what you need a small compact PC which is very easy to move so for me editing and rendering for YouTube it is easy to move around if i want to go to my friends then all i have to do it pick up the pc and it fits in my bag as it is so compact its makes it so easy to move around and to take to different place.


For me the ZBOX Magnus would really help me to expand my YouTube channel and speed up the process of producing amazing content.
