Maybe you know Acer as a manufacturer of laptops and mobile phones. But the Taiwanese technology company also has a line of PC products that are ready for use, including for gaming needs. One of them is the Acer Aspire GX-785.

Although it has no frills Predator or Acer gaming brand, the built-in PC is still quite able to spoil you when playing games.
Physically, the Aspire GX-785 is not too look like a PC to play games. No RGB LEDs, transparent side panels, as well as unique features such as a liquid cooling system (watercooling), or casing shapes with gaming nuances. If aligned with office PC, it will look uniform. The new gaming sensation is felt when you start looking at the specs offered.
The Acer Aspire GX-785 is powered by an Intel Core i7-7700 processor that goes into the family of the 7th generation Intel Core processor or Kaby Lake. It is also accompanied by one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card with reference version which has 3GB of GDDR5 VRAM. As for the memory, this PC is already using 16GB of DDR4 RAM.
Specifications are already explained that the Aspire GX-785 is qualified enough to be used to play any game. When tested using the latest three games, the Ashes of The Singularity, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and The Witcher 3, the Aspire GX-785 can deliver good graphics quality even to touch the 60fps framerate is still quite difficult.

The same is also evident from testing using 3DMark Fire Strike. Acer Aspire GX-785 is able to score 9916 points which means it is very qualified to play games in 1080p resolution with graphic detail settings at high level. Unfortunately, the performance can not be increased again because the Aspire GX-785 does not support overclocking.
However, you can still replace or upgrade components that are in it like a PC in general. Especially for the graphics card, you can just replace the existing GTX 1060 in this PC with a graphic on it. Or at least replace with GTX 1060 6GB version because it will deliver a better performance again.
As a built-in PC, the Aspire GX-785 is also classified as having a complete feature, especially for the front panel. On the front panel you can connect devices ranging from headsets through 3.5mm audio jack, to other devices via USB 3.0. There is also a memory card reader that would be very useful in certain conditions.
Unfortunately, although on the side panel of this PC mentioned that he has SSD but on the unit we received no SSD at all. This is a special spotlight for us because the absence of SSD on the Aspire GX-785 makes booting time grew longer and programs run more slowly. Thus, we estimate his benchmark score could be even higher if his SSD is installed.
Despite having a powerful gaming performance, for us Acer Aspire GX-785 is still a difficult choice. In addition to the components that look “responsibility” because it can not be overclocked, this PC is also quite expensive. Our last observation was priced at $ 1800, and with that price you should be able to get an assembled PC with slightly better specifications. However, if you prefer a simple built-in PC, the Aspire GX-785 can be an option
