    This seems like a computer that was built by someone who knows PC’s but the final decisions are made by Derek at headquarters who thinks the monitor is the computer.

    You know its an honorable compliment when linus called it "not terrible" or "adequate"

    does Linus ever go play a game then says “my fps is bad” then casually unplugs the pc and plug another pc?

    I feel like Walmart just wanted to make a cheap gaming PC and they we're saving on everything they could, but whoever was putting it together, he wanted this to at least look nice for someone, who seen an inside of PC. If I didn't had any knowledge - this computer is just good.

    (I know this is an old video but) I think you should have retested with a dual channel memory to see if that alone would solve the performance issues and also then be another demonstration of the importance of dual channel

    I would love for him to revisit this. The revisions the current version has looks almost looks like they watched the video. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Not having onboard video ports beyond VGA has messed me up SO MUCH. Imagine your PC destroying your Graphics Driver every other update and having no way to plug up a monitor when your GPU just gives up.

    My guess for partitioning the hard drive is that they wanted to make it look like it has a ton of storage. After all, someone who purchases a gaming PC from Walmart may not understand storage capacity metrics.
