I used to work for a guy who wasted an hour trying to convince a vendor to give him a 2% discount on a $200 order. He pissed off the vendor and wasted the time of his poor employee that delivered the merchandise, and made a total ass of himself because I had to show him how to write a check for the merchandise. He was very proud of himself for saving that 2%. I imagine that Walmart is run in much the same way. Everyone involved is really smart and knows what they're doing, except for the guy in charge.

Gpu is air cooled and Cpu is liquid cooled. I'm not really into benchmarking but compared to my MSI GT80s Titan gaming laptop which at times temps reached near 90 degrees, while gaming, my gaming desktop currently lives on the Ice Planet Hoth in comparison. lol.

You have got to be the single most fucking annoying and obnoxious human being on the face of god's green earth that has ever lived. Your voice, whininess, mannerisms, and even tone, pitch, and just basic manner of speaking from a basic level are the highest levels of nails-on-chalkboard irritating. But also you have this incredibly obnoxious and super campy habit of being over-dramatic and over-exaggeratory about the most basic things in the single most douche-baggy way I have ever witnessed, in all of existence. How does literally ANYONE around you manage to contain or stop themselves from kicking the shit out of you?

Mate I use two hard drives cuz it keeps my uses separate e.g. one for games and one for work etc. Idk why you’re overreacting so much - wayy too biased its honestly not even that bad especially since it IS from walmart and they’d like to make sacrifices to keep their prices down. Obviously it wouldn’t be much better than a more expensive gaming pc?

I guess that Walmart gaming PC is like the ghetto ricers out there. Ricers--cars that are all show and no go. Walmart gaming PCs--all show and no (well, a little) go too. Haha. Who buys any kind of computer from Walmart? People who have no computer knowledge whatsoever. (Or maybe just a little.) I built my desktop PC since 2011. Still running good w/o any problems. It's not any fancy, expensive gaming rig, but it hasn't failed me yet.

idk it looks solid. I think if you want it to 100% match all your desires with every piece of hardware, you will probably know how to build pc on your own. The only thing is stability, he said it was a bit overclocked so maybe its performance not gonna last too long. But hey, it's working and does pretty well. But honestly, theres only 100$ difference! come on, it's not worth a risk

First of all, other than bragging rights there's really no reason to overclock. I used to do it and all it did was make my scores higher. Apps load slightly faster, and games play slightly better, but it gets extra hot, and components wear down quicker. Second, I wouldn't trust either one of those systems. If you're serious about gaming you build, you don't buy.

This is what happens when you are wallmart and you refuse to sponsor someone :)) They "forgot" to plug the gpu back after first opening (in order to build their same system), but in all fairness .. does a good motherboard need a dedicated gpu to start the show ? Nope ... they have one onboard ... so they can work a bit on the motherboard. Disclaimer : I am from EU (no wallmart here)

I have NEVER had a secure USB3 pin connector. Ever. Corsair, Antec, HAF, NZXT... Asus, MSi etc. Not a single one stayed in. My main concern with the OP systems is the long term longevity of the hardware. There ARE reasons to have the PS not powdercoated, you don't always get great case grounding but also it could just be there was a huge stock of the right supply "on dock". I *did* like the rigidity of the case and anybody who thinks front panel USB3 is important on a GAMING computer is just abjectly retarded...

I would like to see the spec sheet for that^^ Walmart OP lash-up. If this youtube vid ain't some kind of joke that is!? Do Walmart actually sell those? and for 1400-1500usd you say??? Are PC components in the US way more expensive then in the rest of the world or something?? I just did a quick check for a ready built so called Gaming PC here in Sweden, first one I found under 1500usd went for 1287.36usd (currency convert today) which was the second cheapest build. Below that in price was one for 1007.48usd, thing is both of those come with a proper motherboard(ASUS PRIME B450-PLUS) with 4 RAM slots(part price 117.5usd) as opposed to whatever the thing in that oh so OP Walmart joke came with. There is probably some nifty saying that fits for the travesty shown in this vid. All I know is that you should never skimp on the foundations. In the case of a PC the foundations are the Motherboard and Power Supply Unit, oh and as Linus said one doesn't run any PC(gaming or otherwise) on a single RAM stick. That's why if you look at most any "ready built" gaming PC's spec sheet you will see that it comes with either TWO 4GB, 8GB or 16GB RAM sticks. A total of 16GB RAM being considered optimum/enough for games nowadays and 32Gb being what the enthusiast settles for. Things may change in a mystical future but that's the current thing.. If you don't know much of anything about PC hardware are strapped for cash and decide a ready built PC for 1000-1500usd is the way to go, well then doing some research will probably save you some short to long term grief and future dollars down the drain. Imagine having to remove and replace the foundations of your house by yourself after having removed everything above said foundations without damaging/screwing things up then replacing things on said new foundation. Yeah not fun, the description is somewhat macro but yeah you would probably have to outsource that work and the foundations would cost. My guesstimate.. Equated to above PC(vid) It would probably set you back 240-260usd MB,PSU and rebuild. Along with all the back and fourth, it'd take a week or more to be done.. Don't be played for the fool.

it actually makes perfect sence that they did not include display port or hdmi on motherboard. they want to keep price as low as possible and those things are useless in gaming pc. i wish more companies removed those gimmics. nobody is putting in floppy drives now days, right? why would an asus or msi put a display port or hdmi on a motherboard thats clearly geared towards gamers and make us waste more money for crap. Dont forget, MB manufacturers have to pay licensing fee to HDMI consortium and other port owners for using them so its not just a cost of hardware.

4 partitions is beyond needed and very annoying because now you have to download a linux bootcd partition editor to fix the partitions. But a thing I did long time ago on my WinXP machines was to create 1 partition for the OS and make sure to have plenty of space for all the games. And then another partition for your photos and documents and music. This technique increased file access speed for games like GTA or whatever and the OS responded to things faster. But in today's technology, I don't see much of a point to do this since everything is already fast. Even on my Windows 7 laptop, just 1 partition. There is really no point to partition it unless you dual boot windows and linux and would like to keep photos and docs in a sharable partition. And just a note, I am not much of a gamer anymore and just basically play roblox once a while haaha.
