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

This model ranked #4 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.
