Acer Predator G3-710

 

This striking machine is Acer's latest attempt to gain a foothold in the lucrative gaming market. The Predator G3-710 is an mean-looking system that aims to blast through top titles at 1080p.

Hands on Acer Predator G3 review: intimidating battlestation is kitted out for war

 

Cool-looking chassis houses Skylake and top-end Nvidia GPUs.

Design ; Powerful ; Easy-access ports

Still quite bulky

Expert review by : Mike Jennings (techradar.com)

Acer Predator G3 review

 

A 1080p gaming PC that proves consistently underwhelming

Handles 1080p gaming ; Reasonable Core i5 processor ; Striking physical design

Inconsistent case quality ; Not possible to upgrade ; Many more tempting rivals

Acer's striking Predator PC can handle 1080p games, but it's underwhelming in many important areas – and other gaming systems offer far more for similar cash.

ACER G3-710 Gaming PC

 

It's a great machine. Well built, would recommend as a starting pc or upgrade. Very quiet.

Case is very large so won't fit in any standard sized desks. Mine is placed under my desk.

ACER G3-710 Gaming PC

 

Fast to boot and relativly quiet for a gaming PC. Handles most current games on high settings.

Let down slightly by Windows 10 bugs, but nothing a restart doesn't usually resolve.
