    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.

    Over priced yes. I got an ibuypower from walmart. Asus gtx 1070, 1TB HHD, 240GB SSD, mother board was cheap asa prime runs about 50$ now but still has duel channel ram slot and stock with 16GB ram upgradeable to 64GB, some RGB lighting and i7 8700k cpu. For 1299$ so for sure this pc is over priced. Im sure mine is as well its the price you pay to not have to build your own. Only thing i wish was different on my prebuild was the MB but it works just fine as is. I

    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

    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
