HP’s Omen Obelisk series is known for high-performance AND affordable desktop PCs that can handle most games. You can even have a desktop personalised with all of the specs you require. The price on desktops like the HP OMEN Obelisk 875-1055xt varies depending on which model you choose.

As far as desktop computer aesthetics go, the 875 is actually a bit “boring”, but that’s a good thing for those who don’t want a giant, heavy flashy machine sitting in their room. This one is available in either small form factor (SFF) tower or a mid-size tower. It’s just large enough for a bit of serviceability and expansion. There is a full-tempered glass side panel with some interior RGB lighting, which can be customized along with the Omen logo on the front. These are separate lighting zones, an you can change their colors and patterns if you want. There is an option to turn the lighting off altogether.

The chassis features a “Shadow Black” front bezel, a dark chrome logo, and a glass side panel.
