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.

I care about performance not colors. The only thing I really care about is how my case looks on the outside. No lights. If I only have one choice which i did on my fans that they came in red leds. No big deal. This is just crazy. He'll I have five USB on my front io 2 3.0 and 3 2.0

1500 dollars went to them fancy ass lights. The only romanticism awesome is those fans lol. I go to Wal-Mart and look at their sad little pcs "gaming pc" only to laugh. 12 1500 dollars for what lol. Nothing extravagant to make it that price lol. A gpu and CPU is the only gaming about it lol. Nothing in there is that much monies

I want to say poor walmart, but...its walmart.

I think that the value here is the ability to allow the average consumer to return or exchange anywhere. Additionally this has teenager as the most likely target market. For a 12 year old with 3-5 free hours to play and zero high level knowledge. I say its a good buy but the price is just a bit high

Walmart just buys whatever they can make money on. These systems are a joke. Cause walmart sells two Gaming Systems.. One for 2000 Dollars, and one for 1400 Dollars. I can built a better and faster system for a 1000/1200 Dollars...

well someone competent was told "make the best out of those components we have bought in bulk, do stuff to make it appealing to shoppers" ; they just want it to last as long as warranty, which is easily achievable with those components.

For god sale build your own system, Power supply and motherboard are the BASE concerns so you can add on later, my system Ive built 5 years ago and its still going strong on the latest games although I may getter a better video card soon but that's all it needs, still way more powerful than a ps4 or xbone running the same games

Don't bully partitioning. I have 2 disks each with 2 partition. SSD Windows partition, SSD game partition, download partition and installed things HDD partition. Now I just do a fresh install of Windows and everything works. It's great for lazy people.

To see performance numbers exceed then hear the disgust sounds like "predator class" bs to me. Sorry. I call BS. Sounds like a drag racer saying "Yes! It did go .8 seconds fast in the quarter mile but did you see the non-chromed header covers? I mean! OMG" I just cannot get past how your ignoring the numbers. And no one hates Wal-Mart more than me. I want local growers, farmers, clothing makers, etc....to be in the market but we live in a CPU economy. If you would have tested the CPU (using bitcoin) until it broke & come back with it's "overclocked" & failed....I would say nothing. but follow facts kiddo. They matter. Thumbs down for this one.

you would be surprised how well these sell because most people don't know or really care. it's super easy to build it yourself, if you can't even do this then the odds that you care about any of the negatives is unlikely. built my first one when I was like 15, if you can do a basic puzzle then you can build a computer. a friend needed help recently picking out a system to buy for their nephew. he wasn't sure what to get and was looking at something that was not going to be good at all, but it did have some lights. I recommending one that had a ryzen 2200g, rx 570, ssd and ram i think maybe 120ssd / 1tb hdd and 8gb ram, but it didn't have lights. i think the other one was a 1050ti (not even close in performance to a 570) and i3 6300.. whenever that system needs an upgrade it's done because you are limited with cpu options. the amd system allows a jump to ryzen 4th gen since they will make ryzen on am4 thru 2020 (it would be unlikely they stop at the ryzen coming out before this summer) anyone who knows even a little about computers would agree the amd system is the way to go. the other one didn't even have an ssd, just a 500gb hdd and due to a sale they cost the same. the kid got it and started bitching because he said "this is not a gaming computer, it doesn't have lights", lol. it didn't look bad, it was an hp with some green glowing around it. this is how the average kid thinks who wants a gaming computer. they don't care about the things that matter, they just want it to look cool. anyone who catches any of the issues with the prebuilt is just going to build it themselves anyway.

Linus with all due respect. Before I bought a dedicated ssd for my OS. I used to partition my HD into two separate partitions. One dedicated for the OS, the rest for my videos, games, etc..that way when it came time to reinstall windows, I wouldn't be wiping my permanent files and just need to install the OS on the dedicated partition. So I disagree, there are advantages to dividing your HD up.

Lol I would get ripped on so hard about my hardware options and the shit I have in my pc. Literally my motherboard is so small that i have an aftermarket cooler and it causes the ram sticks to be pushed against each other in a very, very un-comforting manner. And yet the shit works lol

I think the Walmart CPU is optimized more for desktop rendering than full screen gaming and that's why it's slower in game.

Linus your smarter then that! stop acting mind boggled. The RGB is the gimmick to get the buyer to buy the product. They don’t care about performance it’s a main stream offering and to the untrained eye it’s a amazing system, until they buy it and see it’s a lemon. I will say they are buying a hell of a nice case!

hi there.quick question. looking to swap ouit my screen with a different screen(internally is it poss.) and if so do tell. i am 100% sure a "dell" ms screen squirmed its way onto another device of mine which is a vintage acer ...i assume the samsung phone and the first heap off my laptop didnt fill her up so she came back to my acer for more "socialism " i have a gamer tech who is amazing and pretty much a genius i adore his work but i need to spread my wings and ask around a bit. If so let me know...its really nothing special 9-5 i am on .thanks guy!
