    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.

dont skimp on the power supply, yes sometimes those connections come off during shipping. I will put that to a poor cheap power supply. the USB 2 issue so what most folks dont really care unless they are using a lot of external drives to transfer data. and dont want to get in the back of machine a lot. one power surge and that PSU is gone and just might take components with it. I agree I like the dust filters. but not a deal breaker. I agree with the single channel memory thing but not really a lot of preformance difference. now the intake issues long gaming sessions will temp it fast. the durability of the machine I give it lasting till the end of the warranty

@Linus Tech Tips How do I send you photos and a video? I have purchased 3 of the Overpowered laptops and lets just say when I turned one on today, there was smoke coming from the laptop. Maybe you would want to do a video about it? No, I am not joking or trolling..or whatever it is young kids do today. I am serious.

Seems pretty cool to me but I ain't no nerd, I spent $500 for my boys to build their system and it runs great....Looks ugly inside but, its about the games to them not the looks of the box. They are so happy to play all the current gen games its so worth it to me.....that should be fun for a few years and by then they can upgrade .....Me I'm happy with the PS4 and Xbox one better yet a PS Vita that I can take everywhere I go,. These PC game system are freaking crazy expensive and addictive .....always wanting that first high .....junkies 😁😂

I think it would have been nice, for you to remove the single channel and put in a dual 8gb ram to see if that helped with the performance to really show where they went wrong on the performance side as well

As Linus said, ill take performance and stability over pretty lights any day.... and that also includes a decent motherboard.... and looking at the game benchmarks, i'd say the difference in performance between the Dell PC and the Walmart PC, might possibly be in the cheap motherboard that Walmart used....

Linus are you taking the piss! Competitive prices for the specs. 1. The hardware they offer is overpriced where ever you look. 2. The hardware is overpriced coming from walmart themselves. It'd be better if they offered full AMD machines at a fair price If your actually looking to build a highend pc for $1500 you could get something way more powerful if you went all AMD instead of intel & nvidia. A full system built with all AMD components and all of your $1500 would beat a intel & nvidia machine that cost your $1500.

See its MicroATX MB. You have been to China, you saw what all components you can get there, its crazy. They get these flashy RGB cases, which sort of gives a visual appeal but has crappy internals, like the USB2 ports. Thats why they added the USB Type C to the back with this add on. Both these 2 combined are far cheaper than a good case. I wouldn't be surprised if the RGB fans stop working after a couple of months.
