PC Case Gear Gunmetal 1050 Ti Gaming System
$1,349 • http://tinyurl.com/yb3ztj3c Basically the same as their Obsidian PC, this rig for $100 more is worth almost every cent. The proper quad core CPU here will keep the GTX 1050 consistently fed. While the i3 7100 in the Obsidian can match the 1500X’s peak fps in games, the 1500X destroys the i3 7100 when it comes to frame time consistency. Not to mention any other multithreaded load.
While this system is the better of the two it’s disappointing to see a 128GB SSD still being used for the OS drive, limiting system longevity. Consider asking for a larger 256GB SSD if you’ve the budget, it’ll be worth it.
