Compact size ; Silent and cool running ; Solid gaming performance on Ultra

External 330W power brick

The MSI Trident 3 is the little gaming PC that could, delivering solid frame rates just as well as much larger desktops in a smaller package and for a more affordable price.

MSI Trident 3 Gaming PC

 

Although clearly happy to supply components, MSI possesses a clear sense of self-building identity. Laptops yes, but also mini-desktop PCs. The MSI Trident 3 is the company's latest attempt to turn heads. And with good specs, an assured design ethos...

Clearly the Trident 3 won’t be for everyone. If you like to upgrade at your leisure, ensuring maximum cooling for high overclocks it won’t be for you. If you want to tease out those extra frames, or add the glamour of LEDs to matching internal...

Good Gaming PC if the Spec is Right

 

Good gaming PC and very small, very slick, with a console feel and it can be used vertical or horizontally. Check very carefully the spec as some are sold with only the 1TB HDD and no SSD. If you don't have the SSD the performance is much slower on Win...

“Perfect for gaming if you don't have a lot of space!”

 

After some difficulties with my gaming mouse (driversoftware from the mouse had some problems), the computer works just perfectly fine! It is very quiet, even under load it's not making a lot of noise. Very nice for gaming, but also for working. I...

“Krachtig en klein, pracht ding.”

 

De MSI trident is een prachtige computer die zijn werk goed doet. Door zijn design en compactheid ziet het er meer uit als een console dan een pc, maar is deze er niet minder krachtig door. Kan de nieuwste spellen met goede graphics spelen met een...
