Over the weekend PC Perspective visited with ASUS for a stop on their Republic of Gamers tour, ROG @ Fry's Electronics.  On hand at the event were ASUS, Patriot, Antec and NVIDIA to showcase some exciting new hardware, perform some demonstrations both inside and outside the store and of course, offer up tons of prizes and giveaways to the DIY enthusiasts.

Besides the $0.25 hot dogs and sodas (proceeds of which went to local community kids sports teams), I stopped by on Saturday to host a panel of Q&A with a rep from each of the individual companies involved.

After going through some introductions and gauging the knowledge of the audience (standing room only!) we took questions and raffled off some free hardware as well.

Overall I thought the event was a pretty good success and there was a great amount of participation from the local hardware enthusiasts.  If you want to get involved in the market, get hands on with hardware you haven't seen yet and talk directly with the companies that affect your gaming experience, participating in events like this (and future ROG Experience Tour stops) is a fantastic way to do it!

You can see some more photos from the event after the break!!

I drove about 1.5 hours to get to the event from Napa. It was well worth going. Thank you.
