I would buy this if it had a more practical look for my home center..
1x HDMI and 1x VGA? I'm guessing those are the motherboard ports as I doubt there will be a GTX 1080 made with only those ports.
The same could be said for the USB ports. My Rosewill case has 4 3.0 ports and 2 2.0 ports on the front, and the board adds probably 6-8 more USB ports in the back. Even my budget PC at work gas two on the front and 6-8 on the back. I am guessing they are only speaking for the front of the case there.
I'm curious as to what the $1,300 base model includes. That's a pretty pricey build without a monitor.
why do companies need to provide a usb 2.0 port at all now ??
usb 3.0 port is compatible with 3.0 & all the h/w these days have 3.0 only !!
could have added a usb c thunderbolt 3.0 port !!
Charging phones while the system is sleeping.
