You can now pre-order the ASUS ROG GX700 for an 'affordable' £3,500

The ASUS Republic of Gamers GX700 is absolutely insane but at the same time, it's rather astounding. Be it the massive cooling dock you can use to more effectively prevent the components from melting, the £3,500 price tag, or the onboard GTX980 with 8GB of vRAM, the GX700 will turn heads one way or another. Speaking of which, you can now pre-order one for yourself (opens in new tab) if you have the cash to part with.

The reason for the rather pricey listing? Check out the specifications below.
