Remember when the first iPods were released by Apple? They came in multiple different version and variants. For instance, there was the iPod Video, which was bulkier, more expensive, but boasted incredible amounts of storage, and movie playing capacity (whoa). Then, if you couldn’t afford that, you could look into the iPod mini, which had decent storage but was smaller and less affordable. The SkyTech Archangel ST-FX6300-8GB1TB-GTX750TI gaming desktop operates in a similar fashion. It’s a great gaming desktop that, while not offering all the top-notch specs, delivers decent performance across the board, while being quite inexpensive, even for a computer user outside of the gaming world. In the world of gaming desktops, the SkyTech Archangel ST-FX6300-8GB1TB-GTX750TI is the iPod Mini mentioned in the earlier comparison. Although it’s not the most high-tech of gaming desktops available for purchase, it’s certainly a good gaming desktop and an equally cheap gaming desktop. When compared to the best gaming desktops available, it contains a rather lackluster set of features. However, these features are enough to run most games, on moderately high settings. Here is a glimpse of what this good gaming desktop has to offer, apart from being designed to look like the head of a hybrid Stormtrooper from Star Wars. It runs a competent AMD FX-6300 3.8GHz 6-core processor, which is where the bulk of the cost stems from. Although the other features are slightly outdated, this processor is top-class from AMD. It also features Windows 10 Professional, a GTX 750M graphics card, comes loaded with a mouse, keyboard, and HDMI cable, and has a 1-year warranty on parts and labor. Overall, paired with its affordability, it doesn’t make for a bad gaming desktop, at all.

Almost Perfect Performance, With Exceptional Affordability
The SkyTech Archangel ST-FX6300 may not possess the specs of the top gaming desktops, but it certainly can play any game that a desktop considered “the best gaming desktop” can. The internal processor deserves some applause, for it carries the weight of the slack that the graphics card brings to the table. You’ll find that this monstrous gaming computer is able to run any game made in 2016, on moderate to high settings. Although you might experience performance issues on ultra, if you’re on a budget and want to experience a game purely for the storyline or multiplayer, then this desktop computer is perfect for you. You’ll find that this good gaming desktop operates with sublime speed. Another positive aspect of this gaming desktop is the accessories you’ll get if you are to purchase it. Although it doesn’t come with a monitor, it has a decent grade keyboard, a decent mouse, and an acceptable HDMI cable that are included in the package. For the price, this is off the charts, in a good way. Definitely a bargain and a steal. On the exterior, this excellent gaming desktop is as sleek as a restored, caramel-colored 1962 Cadillac on chrome rims. You’ll fall in love with its design, and the way it has a cyborg-blue light pulsating from the heart of the tower. It looks like Jango Fett’s starship, with a paint job. If you’re a Star Wars fan, this gaming desktop is for you. It’ll help you in your defense when the empire strikes back. On a more serious note, another positive feature of the SkyTech Archangel ST-FX6300 gaming desktop is its speedy delivery. It’s advertised to take a while, but ships in far fewer days. Overall, this is an affordable option for those who enjoy high-class gaming but don’t want to fork out $1500 to play games on high graphic settings with no lag.
Jango Was Brought Down, Eventually
This gaming desktop is delightfully affordable and contains a processor that rivals even the best gaming laptops. However, there are several causes for concern, especially with respect to the capabilities of its internal hardware. Although the processor helps the speed of the computer, the graphics card is quite outdated. Obviously, the price is indicative of the fact that there is going to be something that is not completely up to par. The cost of the ancient graphics chip is that you won’t be able to play the most graphic intense games on ultra-high settings. You’ll certainly be able to play all of them on moderate settings, and some on high, but not much above that. However, unless you are very particular about this feature, it shouldn’t matter too much. Another issue with this computer is that the initial startup is quite slow, sometimes taking five or more minutes. The operating system itself, Windows 10 seems to want to do its own thing and can be quite buggy. Also, the quality of the computer parts isn’t that great. This machine would be better if it wasn’t manufactured with China plastic, and had an Intel processor. These are light technical errors that can make the life of gaming slightly difficult. However, this is a small price to pay, for an incredibly cheap gaming system.
Overall, this computer does the job on many levels. It performs decently well with most games and can run these games on moderately high settings. The design is sleek, futuristic, and would have Han Solo on his toes. Seriously, it’s scary cool. It’s also incredibly affordable and makes a great gaming desktop computer for the beginning gamer, or a gamer that doesn’t game enough to need the strongest of graphical capabilities. This affordability is certainly noticeable on the highest of settings, but below that, there aren’t many problems present. Without a doubt, the incredible affordability of this machine is off the charts. If you buy it, you won’t stand to be disappointed.
