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.

    Also, did anyone notice the PS/2 connectors on the Wal-mart PC?

    Fun fact: the VGA connector on the motherboard is most likely a Displayport with an active converter built in.

    Build you own PC guys.
    Start from the CPU, find what CPU you want to use, from that chose your Motherboard (by asking someone that knows) and then from that chose your Ram by buying 4 Ram sticks that their clocks are close to your CPU clock. Then chose a gold PSU and ask someone that knows what cooling solution you can buy for that Motherboard.

    And that’s it your PC is done.
    You can spend the rest of your time choosing a good GPU and all the rest, like a good box with enough space in the back side panel for cable management and of course all the etcetera parts of any computer. It’s not that hard, all you really need to care about is make sure all what you buy work together and they are around the same clocking times.

    How much?



  12. gamming Z on August 27, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    the thumdnail is scary because the reflection of side temper glass pc is not. Same as linus face did some one recognise that



  13. daguix on August 27, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    Motherboard extendability is overrated.



  14. The Kweb Miner on August 27, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    12:21 he accidentaly puts his hand in the case fan 😂😂😂



  15. Boring 5 on August 27, 2019 at 2:01 pm

  16. Павел Анатольевич on August 27, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    ahha… what is opines? XD



  17. vyx on August 27, 2019 at 2:08 pm

    Why does everyone ignore the fact that his setup is in a kitchen



  18. Logan Brasfield on August 27, 2019 at 2:09 pm

    3:16, WAIT LET ME BACKUP FIRST LOL



  19. GameBossBot on August 27, 2019 at 2:09 pm

    Don’t play games with the gaming computers, just use apps -_- bruh



  20. AC Gamer on August 27, 2019 at 2:10 pm

    so they charged more because it has rgb and looks cool but didn’t care most about the Performance?



  21. NickTv 1313 on August 27, 2019 at 2:12 pm

    Yes yes that are



  22. Ryux4x4 on August 27, 2019 at 2:14 pm

    lol you never get a second chance at first impressions. those rgb fans are way better then the corsair LL120s



  23. I on August 27, 2019 at 2:14 pm

    Poor Ivan.



  24. kluangh1tam on August 27, 2019 at 2:15 pm

    So basically the rig has outdated graphic card, shitty PSU and cheap motherboard. That’s why it was under powered and not performing as expected. Linus makes it too dramatic, "don’t understand this… don’t understand that…".



  25. GerryTech on August 27, 2019 at 2:17 pm

    Demonitized lmao



  26. ArexGaming on August 27, 2019 at 2:18 pm

    It’s called a folder!
    *angry clicking intensifies*



  27. WinterTech Gaming on August 27, 2019 at 2:20 pm

    Isn’t it just awesome when you can set up two pc’s on your kitchentop and not even care



  28. Fett on August 27, 2019 at 2:20 pm

    Does Ivan still work there



  29. FixItYerself on August 27, 2019 at 2:23 pm

    did you expect something better than a system built by a 5 year old at Walmart? lol. usb 2.0, ps2 kb and mouse ports, and vga? nevermind, they forgot to plug everything in.



  30. Alean Baltazar on August 27, 2019 at 2:24 pm

    I completely, most definitely, do not understand what they’re saying. I love it



  31. Bjarke And on August 27, 2019 at 2:25 pm

  32. James Sisk on August 27, 2019 at 2:25 pm

    I’m waiting for the Onn brand gaming PC.



  33. nimeni86 on August 27, 2019 at 2:25 pm

    I’m a partitioning hard drive kinda guy.



  34. Kalsang on August 27, 2019 at 2:26 pm

    But can it run crisis



  35. kalreyan on August 27, 2019 at 2:28 pm

    I bet this guy hates everything ever existed besides him self



  36. Greenplant221 gaming on August 27, 2019 at 2:30 pm

    am I the only one that noticed the exhaust fan is pointed the wrong way?



  37. Ron Dusablon on August 27, 2019 at 2:33 pm

    i would choose that



  38. NickTv 1313 on August 27, 2019 at 2:34 pm

    You are in a fake kitchen



  39. Matt Thomas on August 27, 2019 at 2:36 pm

    Linus, I Love your content keep up the good work. BUT, I really do like that you are an early adopter, I am too. I know Hollywood has gone to ultrawide, PC Gamers are moving in that direction, BUT PLEASE LINUS, PEOPLE WATCH YOUTUBE ON TELEVISIONS AND PHONES, AND COME TO THINK OF IT ALL COMMON DEVICES, WHICH ARE 16X9. PLEASE DON’T BE THE GUY THAT GIVES US BLACK BARS…they are especially bad because the way youtube handles it, the black bars are on left and right in windowed mode and change to top and bottom when going full screen. I appreciate your time and hope you consider the wide reaching implications of this suggestion.



  40. Nahjii Johnson on August 27, 2019 at 2:36 pm

    "those HP guys" thinking i have one of those….



  41. Robert Frost on August 27, 2019 at 2:37 pm

    What is the prebuilt HP system? Can you send me a link for the HP?



  42. ShadowCuber on August 27, 2019 at 2:38 pm

    i still want this pc anyway

    good enough for me



  43. John Smith on August 27, 2019 at 2:38 pm

    I feel like you should have compared the system after a clean reinstall in addition to our of the box



  44. Daz cruz on August 27, 2019 at 2:41 pm

  45. Ravenge- RD on August 27, 2019 at 2:43 pm

  46. Rukashue on August 27, 2019 at 2:43 pm

    This PC right now is $699 at Walmart! Would you say it’s worth the money at that point? Or should I turn to building?



  47. Nathan Andrews on August 27, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    Why does the monitor on the left have such a different look on tomb raider than the one on the right?



  48. Code: WhiteZT on August 27, 2019 at 2:44 pm
