Pros

  • GTX 1070 graphics
  • Skylake processor
  • Sleek looking case
  • Mystic Lighting
  • Not warranty sealed
  • Smaller form factor

Cons

  • 350w power supply
  • Limited amount of HDD bays
  • Case design not for everyone

Bottom Line

The MSI VR Ready Aegis-050US is an alien inspired looking case that has been filled with great hardware for gaming at home or at LAN parties. However the tiny PSU is a limiting factor and replacing it will mean finding a specific PSU.


The MSI VR Ready Aegis-050US is a bestselling gaming PC that has been praised for its alien looking case, smaller form factor, dedicated 10-series NVIDIA graphics, sixth generation processor and for its good selection of ports. However, it does only come with a 350w power supply which will make upgrading this PC a balancing act. The power supply unit cannot be replaced with a conventional unit to increase its wattage, making it the Achilles heel of this aggressive looking gaming PC.
