The new OverPowered line of gaming PC's from Walmart got slammed by other reviewers. While they do not sell these in Canada, we went down to US and got one to see for ourselves.

Take that extra 100$ and go dual channel? It's going to be a very long time before you need over 32 GB of ram. Also you don't take apart that prebuilt HP... So what are you comparing it too? The only thing that seems to really matter is the lack of dual channel, I doub't people who buy prebuilt systems even know what USB 3.0 is. Why do you want more pci-e slots? I bet you have a video saying sli is stupid...

But it's not that bad for 1 500 $ though. I mean, it depends how much 1 500 bucks mean to you. I just want to point out that in Europe, PCs and components are much more expensive compared to US market - hell, I won't even consider a gaming PC being "a gaming PC" if it doesn't cost at least 2 000 $ - and yes, of course you could get better components one by one, especiaily if you are buying on let's say, christmas or black friday. As for the USB 2.0 on the front...don't they always put cheap-lame USB port on the front and the good one on the back ? I swear this is the case on every pre-built PC on the market. As for the technology behind it, even today in 2019 you find PCs with USB 2.0, PS/2 ports and EVEN floppy disk support in BIOS !!

You are nitpicking. The performance was not an issue vs cost, and walmart buyers aren't the geeks you are. video unplugged? like dell has never screwed up...you don't like the mobo, but most folks won't ever SEE the mobo. They will see the purty lights tho. So the 1 stick of ram is a BIT of a bottleneck...but you seemed impressed until the one benchmark looked odd to you...and even then you said "BUT, it doesn't seem to affect game play" The USB3 on the rear vs usb2 on the front...big whoop. get a hub... the actual thing here is you geeked out over ugly PS and glue on mobo, even while reminding us A: it performed pretty well and B: it was reasonably priced. I expected a bit better from you, you seem pretty grounded normally. What if walmart called it a casual gamer pc?

You can buy an older 6 core PC for under $100 in most places. From that you can build a pretty decent machine.

that's because these computers are put together by 7yr old asian children in sweatshops who are paid .50 cents hr. - so at least you won't find any pubic hair in your motherboard.

Hey I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I was doing some research for a good gaming monitor and came across a video that was clearly stolen content from other USvidrs. But I'm not sure who the creators are so I can't reach out to them. It's really frustrating to see content stolen from others so if you have some time and can help me reach out to the creators. This is the video link usvid.net/video/video-TPSQfemNhLM.html

Buying pre-built is okay. Spending 1500 on a pre-built is debatable. If youre gonna spend a lot of shekels on a pc might as well make sure it's quality made. Meaning, only way to know for sure is choosing the parts yourself. So, $1500= build your own. Trust me it's not that hard.

I'm willing to look past those usb 2.0 ports. That PSU is probably a more cause for concern. Especially with that CPU and GPU, the minimum should've been 750 Watts.

Those "configuration specialists" at these companies are terrible. Usually they're some 18-24 year old kid making $17/hr on an insanity inducing assembly line. I remember before I joined this company as the lead on imaging, they let a third party vendor do the configuration of 150 machines they purchased for a new company they had acquired. They accidentally used a 256gb image on a 512gb drive so the drives had 2 partitions, one of which I shit you not contained a virus. So literally first day of handing out machines everybody in that company had a virus.
