Gamers are well catered for, too. Seen here is the 34-inch, curved ROG Swift monitor, hooked up to the G20 Special Edition gaming PC. The PC packs the latest Nvidia graphics cards and, like all the best gaming rigs, has a variety of dancing LED lights all over.

For the gamers who do their fragging on the move, the GX700 laptop is just the ticket. It's specced out with top-end gaming hardware, but the excitement comes when you dock it.

That dock uses liquid cooling to chill the laptop, allowing it to be automatically overclocked, producing up to 80 percent more power for games.

Don't expect this guy to come cheap.
