PC Specialist Obsidian Zen Review

If you're gaming on a budget then the AMD Zen might be just the ticket, and PC Specialist have combined it with a GTX 1060 to bring us a very affordable system.

Hmm. Not sure 750 is affordable really. Well, not for the spec. It looks cheap too, something you wouldn't expect it to for that much money. If it were 600 or maybe even 500 it would be better.

Let's face it, this is entry level. Soaring hardware costs have pushed that price up like crazy.

Thats a very well spec'd rig for 750. Most of it going on the GPU clearly but the only thing its 'lacking' as Bry said is an SSD.

Can't say I'm impressed. The look is poor, cheep and plasticy, cabling every colour of the rainbow. Hardware price are at a high just now but the lack of effort by PC Specialist in presentation is a shame. Over priced by 100 IMO.

As a plug and play unit its a nice middle of the road budget gamer build for the consumer who cares not for building their own system, as far as games go it'll be ok for low to mid settings and should keep the owner happy. Obvs we are all modders, builders, enthusiasts here and its not really our up our streets and yes we've all probably hit pcpartpicker already to try building our own. But when you factor in the average joe who just wants a system now and has no interest in building their own I think it's a pretty tidy system and let's not forget the upgrade possibilities later. As for prices its about fair when you factor in shipping, warranty, labour costs.

Let's not forget not everyone is an enthusiast and prebuilt systems have a place.

The warranty is crap. 1 yr parts when you get two or three buying parts.

we can all spec a better machine for a little cheaper (not by much tho tbh) if you assemble it yourself but that case can not be excused.
