Acer Nitro 50 Gaming PC (N50-120-EB11)

This model ranked #6 among Stationary Computers priced under $2000 in terms of bang-for-the-buck.

If you're looking for a gaming rig but have limited funds to do so, this system is a compelling solution. It's a reasonably powerful PC for the price and if you need more room for your game collection, it's easier to start with small but fast storage and build from there than starting with slower storage, even if its roomier.

Other Considerations

Here are a few things about this Stationary Computer which could come as a surprise. For each point, you will find how to fix it (if it's an issue) and how much to budget for it. Not every point below will be a concern, but hopefully, we can keep your surprises to a minimum.

Speakerless. This Stationary Computer needs external speakers to play sounds. Your options are to hook it up to a TV or a monitor with built-in speakers, use external speakers or a headset.$30+

No Camera or Microphone. If your plans include skyping with family members or playing with your friends online, you would need a webcam or, for best results, a headset and microphone.$40+

Screenless. If you don't already have a monitor from your last computer, you could connect this Stationary Computer to a TV or get a new monitor.$120+

No Optical Drive. If you still use CDs, DVDs, or Blu-Ray disks on a regular basis, you will need an external drive to read them with this Stationary Computer.$30+

Assuming you are starting over fresh, you can expect to spend $320 on accessories, for a total cost of $1320.
