The Skytech Chronos 0136 is actually good — or mostly good — and stands apart as one of the best two pre-built gaming PCs from 2021 that we’ve reviewed so far. We’ve only managed to find two pre-built gaming PCs that are worth it: One was the ABS Challenger ALI521, and the other is this Skytech system. “Worth,” of course, is somewhat relative — value is still a little rough in this market, but it is built mostly competently and does reasonably well in benchmarking. There are some faults, like a broken component, but it’s better off than the iBUYPOWER, CyberPower, Dell, and Alienware systems we’ve reviewed. This lands in our round-up of the best $2000 (or so) gaming PCs.
