Have any of you had experience with an Asus computer?  Would love to get some thoughts on this machine for post processing camera files.

You don't specify your volume of images.

That said, that thing is grossly overpriced for what you get.

You can put together a Ryzen Threadripper 2 12-core CPU-based system with 32GB of memory, a high-end Radeon video card, and a lot more storage (using an SSD) that will run circles around that for less money. If you're using LR/PS, they can take advantage of many threads.

Radeon drivers are more solid than Nvidia drivers right now, generally speaking. FWIW.

Intel is just overpriced.

I don't know what you need for your images, but I have 13TB of disk space in my system, for both photos and video, my files, scratch, and OS. The idea of a 512MB M.2 and 1TB drive is, for me, laughable. YMMV.
