PAX East kicks off this weekend in Boston, but MSI is giving us all a sneak peek of what it will be showing off at the convention. Everything from laptops to motherboards, video cards, and all-in-one PCs will be on display, along with a few interesting items to build up MSI's market share. The GT80 Titan SLI gaming laptop features a mechanical keyboard, the first in a laptop, while the GS30 Shadow laptop can be hooked up to a new docking station. The docking station is called the GamingDock, and it's a large unit that can fit any desktop video card you want inside it to seriously beef up the laptop's gaming potential. MSI will also have the GE62 Apache gaming laptop that has an NVIDIA GTX 965M and a dual exhaust system.

For the motherboards, MSI has the Z97A GAMING 9 ACK, Z97A GAMING 7, X99A GAMING 9 ACK, and the X99A GAMING 7. All four feature support for Type-A USB 3.1, which is twice as fast as USB 3.0, with the two Z97 boards also featuring Type-C USB 3.1 ports. Those Type-C ports feature a reversible connector so the USB plug no longer needs to be facing the correct way or exist in the fourth dimension. Each motherboard has two USB 3.1 ports, which are also backwards compatible.

Switching over to video cards, MSI has the GTX 900 GAMING series, with the GTX 980, 970, and 960 all featuring the company's Twin Frozr V cooler. There are even limited edition GTX 970 and 960 cards that have an NVIDIA Green cooler on them instead of the typical color scheme. MSI also has a black and white cooler on the GTX 960 2GD5T OC card, which pairs up nicely with the company's Z97S SLI Krait and X99S SLI Krait Edition motherboards. If you're going to be running two video cards together, perhaps MSI's new premium SLI bridge is for you. It supports 2-Way SLI and LED backlighting that can be controlled via the MSI Gaming app.

Finishing off MSI's PAX East showcase are some new all-in-one gaming PCs. The AG270 2QC 3K features a 27" WQHD IPS panel with a 2560x1440 resolution, and is powered by an Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M video card. It also has Yamaha speakers for blasting your favorite tunes or getting you closer to the game. There is also the Gaming 24GE PC, which sports a 4K resolution for some truly impressive visual power. It's powered by an Intel Core i7-4720HQ and a GeForce GTX 900 Series video card, and features a Nahimic Audio Processor to increase its audio output.

All of these and more will be available at the MSI booth at PAX East, which runs from March 6 to 8 at the Boston Convention Center. MSI will also have some League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive matches to win some prizes, as well as daily raffles with SteelSeries products, t-shirts, MSI components, and even a laptop from iBUYPOWER.
