Question about the ROG Strix GA35

Level 7

I'm thinking of getting a ROG Strix GA35 G35DX GA35DX-XB999, but it's really expensive and I'd only get it above a cheaper alternative because of the included 24GB for the GPU.

I've heard that the GA35 in general has hot-swap bays and I was wondering if there's any way to use RAM sticks for these to boost the capabilities of the 3080 in the less expensive ROG Strix GA35 G35DX GA35DX-XB989 model.

I'm not an expert when it comes to computers and I just want a computer that can outperform or match the recommended (not minimum) system requirements for new games for the next two or three years (more would be better, but probably not realistic with the current pace of graphical development for video games).

Hi @kerligamp 

The GA35 is a nice machine but no longer produced and only stock is being sold. It has good performance but not the latest components. There are no other OEM prebuid machines with watercooling as faire as i know. So only if there is a nice discount it would be interesting.

The hot Swap bay's can only be used for 2,5" SATA SSD's. 24GB graphics card is not required for any game as faire as i know. 16 gb would be sufficient. 

You would be able to play most games in high settings but probely not the highest settings for the next 2-3 years.
