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.

He mentioned how having just a VGA port makes the mobo feel outdated. Surprised he didn't also mention the PS2 ports. Another archaic thing to find. What's next, a parallel port? lol

the only argument i've heard for that many partitions is to have your system page file in it's own partition to make sure it runs as smoothly as possible, but those looked like 4 equal partitions... there's no justifiable reason for that I can think of

The only REAL issues I see with this computer is the price, the front fans practically being flush with plexi glass (so much for airflow), and the PCIE cable being disconnected. The cable isn't that big of a deal for those of us who know what we're doing, but a lot of people who buy these don't and that's where the issue lies. They won't know where to plug it in or might be nervous to do so. That's how I was when I first started. I was TERRIFIED because it's expensive. Again looking at price. Otherwise airflow is really the only other issue I would have. How is that practical? lol And he didn't even mention it in the video which is pretty bizarre.

I really don't mean to bitch but I have a question. Why do gamers like all those RGB lights on their PC so much these days? I really don't get it, seems mostly distracting to me if you're trying to lose yourself in the wprld of Tomb Raider and there's this explosive light-show going on right next to you. And let's assume you just love those lights, seriously, how long will you look at it before it starts getting old? For me I would think about 5 minutes. Really I don't get it, I game and when I build I literally need to fight to keep all these colored lights out of my build (not easy!!!!)
Solowarrior1221 20 soat oldin
gamers nexus did test the PSU and by all accounts from them it's a decent power supply, passed the tests they put it through, even has safety features. so while walmart skimped on the powder coat, it looks like they did not skimp on the actual psu, which is nice.

Walmart price is priority 1, quality is priority like 203. They picked the worst places to skimp, they could have made an excellent extremely competent and competitive well-made product instead they made a cheap crappy almost guaranteed to have some kind of catastrophic failure trash fire.

Both are very similar, and both can handle games fine. Both are suitable for casual gamers. I’ve had terrible customer service experience with HP though, and I’m pretty sure Walmart will have better warranty and return policies, just in case. Pretty bias review though, disappointed.

Really would like to see what the bottleneck on the FPS was. What it would take to get on-par with the omen system. Thought the Walmart system might slightly have an edge with all cores running at a boosted clockspeed. Throw in a 2nd stick of ram!

So when will we get the video benchmarking HDD vs SSD FPS in games?

I have to disagree on partitioning ... I usually keep separate partitions for the operating system and data on a system with only one HD and point the Users folder to the data partition. If I need to install the OS again, I do not need to back up the system.

So the fine folks at Walmart found the correct child labor force in China to build their PCs. Except someone was sent back to the salt mines for forgetting to plug in the Video Card.

Anti Wallmart bias? It performs perfectly well, but you find loads of "faults".

My motherboard is now 10 years old and upgradeability went into the choice. Its starting to go towards the end of its lifetime though, oh it wouldnt be if all games i would be interested in would be AAA titles let alone if i was just playing and not also streaming which takes up 1-2 cores, but AAA titles dont need that much in terms of CPU. They go with graphics and damned be everything else. For compiling code or anything, performance really isnt such a big issue, either and so it lasted a long time.

I forget which channels the vids were from, but I saw 2 other of these OP towers where the gpu was unplugged on arrival. It seems like a choice from the company rather than an error.

Never skimp on a PSU. It should have been a 750 watt or higher for a mid-range gaming PC. About $80.
