Acer Predator AG3-605-UR39

 

The Acer Predator AG3-605-UR39 is a midrange gaming desktop PC that will perform well on the game grid. But its limited internal expansion options mean it's strictly for the plug-and-play crowd.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 graphics. Lots of I/O ports. Front-accessible hard drive expansion bay

Limited internal expansion. Flimsy feeling sliding door. No Blu-ray drive

The Acer Predator AG3-605-UR39 midrange gaming desktop ($1,299.99 as tested) not only looks imposing, but its quad-core Intel processor and an enthusiast-level Nvidia GeForce graphics card will help annihilate PC game opponents. But given its limited...

Acer Predator G review: A budget-priced gaming rig with some real teeth

 

Unlike many off-the-shelf PCs aimed at gamers, the 2014 Predator is no wannabe.

Strong price-to-performance ratio ; Blu-ray drive ; Attractive, unassuming enclosure

No SSD ; Just adequate power supply ; Only one PCIe slot (occupied)

You'll find plenty of more powerful gaming PCs on the market, but few that are this competitively priced for the components delivered.

Performance lags behind other similarly-equipped systems

With the continued growth of PC gaming, desktop makers are flocking to gamers with ready-made gaming rigs designed to appeal to those who don't care to build their own systems. The latest among these is the Acer Predator AG3-605-UR20, a mid-level...

Snappy-looking case laden with connectivity, Good productivity and mainstream-gaming performance, 3TB of storage space, Cheaper than similarly outfitted competitors

Peripherals, parts of case feel flimsy, Overprovisioned with RAM, Nagging bloatware

You could, of course, still build your own system for less if you have the time and expertise. But then, that's always been the case. The Predator G3 is aimed at those who want to buy a ready-to-play rig and start gaming a few minutes after opening the...

great pc

 

Ok quick update, i bought this in 2014 and haven't changed anything out yet. Is it better to change out everything out or specific stuff or try to build my own, any help be helpfull since newegg doesn't sell this pc anymore

pc runs smooth and all the spec are really high

the only is the pc didn't come with a fan , not really a big con but annoying.

Refurbished for a reason

 

Fast, quiet, lots of easily accessible ports front and back.

I see why it was refurbished. The GPU is faulty and crashes games to desktop with a driver error every 5 to 30 minutes. The error is very inconsistent and probably slipped past whoever in QA recertified the machine. I've tried everything, reinstalling...

Awesome Computer

 

A powerful machine for a moderate price, I bought it to use as a development workstation. Turns out that the configuration it comes with is sufficient to run a bunch of my favorite games on the highest graphics as well.

A few of the ports on the back of the computer come disabled. Also, the graphics card is HDMI + DVI, no VGA, which made me jump a couple of loops to get my monitors working.
