Why Vortex new gaming PC is better than other?
The Vortex with a volume of 6.5 liters and a height of just 10.5 inches is relatively small with all these excellent specifications. Though, MSI continue to experiment with design and form factor, besides its affinity with Apple’s Mac Pro, the design of Vortex curved but angular does feel fresh.
