With the recent announcement of ROG Z490 Motherboards, ASUS has started the ASUS Z490 Pre-Order program that bundles select Z490 Motherboards with accessories. So if you’re primarily a PC Gamer, looking to build an Intel Based Gaming PC with the latest processor and motherboard, look no further.
First of all, this ASUS Z490 Pre-Order promo will run for the duration of May 6 until May 20 only. There are two bundles to choose from, each motherboard having their own tier of included peripheral/monitor and Steam Store credit . Also, Buyers will be given priority to pick a 10th Gen Intel CPU of their choice to buy (Intel Z490 uses the new socket LGA 1200, so getting a new processor is a definite MUST). It is estimated that there will be a maximum of up to Php6000 in savings (depending on the board/bundle chosen). Now let’s go through the bundles in detail.
Gaming Gear Bundle
There are three peripherals that are included in the Gaming Gear Bundle. For Maximus XII series motherboards, it is the ROG Cetra noise-cancelling earbuds. The ROG Pugio ambidextrous gaming mouse is included with ROG STRIX Z490 series. While the TUF K5 Gaming Keyboard is bundled with the TUF Gaming Z490 Plus (WiFi).
Gaming Monitor Bundle
Another option to get is the Gaming Monitor Bundle, especially if your current monitor’s old, small, slow for gaming. If getting the Maximus XII series, then the handsome ROG STRIX XG32VQR will be bundled in. For those opting for ROG STRIX Z490 series, the ASUS VG278QR monitor will be included. And for those getting the TUF Z490 Gaming Plus (WiFi), it’s the TUF Gaming VG27VQ.
CPU Express Lane and Steam Gifts
As mentioned earlier, aside from the bundle discounts, those who have pre-ordered Z490 motherboards will get as much as Php 1000 Steam credits. Also, buyers will get priority Intel 10th Gen CPU allocation of their choice from the store where they bought from.
