Lenovo’s Erazer X315 is a $600+ desktop for gamers on a budget

PC gaming systems are expensive, even if you decide to build one yourself. So if your PC buying budget is in triple digit territory, you can pretty much kiss Core i7 CPUs, and other high-end hardware, goodbye.

However, if your PC gaming needs are restricted to casual titles like League of Legends, DOTA 2, and other popular games like Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls, you can get away with a lesser system and enjoy reasonably high frame rates without breaking the bank. These games are what Lenovo’s new Erazer X315 gaming PC is built to play.

The Erazer X315 will be available with a range of AMD APUs, featuring processors that go up to the company’s A10 series of chips. They’ll also ship with the company’s R9 line of Radeon graphics cards. Storage options max out at 2TB, which should be more than enough to hold your entire games library, and then some.

Unfortunately, the Erazer X315 is probably too small to hold huge graphics cards like the R9 290 or R9 280 GPUs, so your upgrade options will be limited on this front. RAM will top out at 12GB, which is more than enough for heavy multitasking. In fact, even 8GB should suffice for just about anyone, we think.

The front panel contains a foursome of USB 3.0 ports, one of which is an always-on connection. That means that even if the Erazer X315 is off, you can plug a smartphone or tablet into it, and it’ll charge. The front panel also attempts to add some flair to the system, wearing some shield-like panels and edges, along with LED lighting.

The Lenovo Erazer 315 will be available starting sometime this November, and will start at $600.
