Acer Aspire TC-865-UR14 Desktop Review
Latest pricing, specs and Acer gaming PC review. Updated September 2020. How many PC games will it run? Is it a good choice for a PC gamer? Should you buy this Acer computer?
For a PC gamer, the most important component in the system is the graphics card. This is the supermodel part that will make or break the setup and is responsible for making all your games look awesome. The more powerful the graphics card the higher, smoother frame rates you will get, the higher resolution you can run at, and the better your games will look. For graphics, this Acer computer has a Intel UHD 630. We rate this Intel GPU as powerful enough to run 250 games at a recommended level.
Next on the list has to be the CPU. The processor at the heart of your gaming desktop is the brains of the outfit, and is vital for making sure that you can get the most out of your graphics card when it comes to gaming performance. The number of cores isn’t vital for games, beyond four cores you get diminishing returns, but you want to make sure what you do have run at a high frequency. The Acer Aspire TC-865-UR14 Desktop has a Intel Core i5-9400 capable of running at 2.9 GHz. That level of power from an Intel chip means it is rated to run 967 of the most popular 1000 PC games at a recommended level.
The level of RAM in a gaming desktop is also important. More system memory allows your PC to churn through large amounts of data quickly, and for today’s massive open gameworlds it’s vital to have that information accessed quickly to speed up game loads. Having too little RAM can mean laggy frames and a poor experience.
This rig comes with 8 GB of system RAM. It’s a bit disappointing and will limit the performance and the number of games this gaming PC will be able to run.
Unfortunately, this pre-built gaming PC won't run games like GTA V, PUBG, Red Dead Redemption 2, Apex Legends, Minecraft and Fortnite at a recommended level.
Coming in at $556.96 this rig falls into our budget category of gaming PCs under $750. The setup can run 274 of our target games at recommended level.
