Decently priced for an all-in-one PC with these specs.

Swapping out the NVIDIA GeForce GT 420 for a slightly newer mid-range card would make this PC pretty much up to date.

3 agree

Comes ready to go with a mouse and keyboard.

3 agree

Vast amount of USB ports allows it to handle a number of gaming accessories easily.

8GB of DDR3 1333MHz RAM picks up some of the slack for the older video card.

Fan noise is kept to a minimum except during heavy use.

The  Acer Predator G3 is an entry level gaming desktop. This based model gaming computer from Acer offers second generation Intel Core i5-2300 processor (2.8GHz) as well as Nvidia Geforce GT420 dedicated graphics capable of handling 3D ocntent. Whilst it cannot be considered high-end, both of these mid range components, the Predator G3 provides adequate performance for most modern games. Other features include a 1.5TB hard drive, 8GB of DDR3 memory, and 12 USB ports. At its MSRP, a self-built system with higher performance is certainly possible. Whilst the system looks impressive, it should be questioned whether 8GB of ram or 12 USB ports are excessive, perhaps the system's MSRP could have been reduced. All in all, the Acer Predator G3 is a good option for buyers lookign fro a pre-built, gaming capable desktop computer.
