I get people have issues with Walmart PCs and for good reason. But I’m just looking for some input on if this is a good system or not. Any serious bottlenecks and what kind of expandability am I looking at. I wanted to go with a mid range but if I can get back into pc gaming for this price, it sounds alright to me to go to a budget system.

Also I wanted to build my next one so if I can get something for that price, better, and build it myself, it’d rather go that route.

Bulk buying from the manufacturer disconnect

They buy CPUs by the tray (1000), etc

Looks like it’s not such a good deal if I can build one from components you listed with more power. Although... Smaller SSD, no 1 tb drive, no keyboard and mouse but has larger ram amounts. Correct?

eesti 1 point 2 months ago

The SSD is half a TB, and peripherals are able to be added easily

I also realized that prebuild pc has an A320m mobo.

That kinda turns me off the deal until you also realize windows 10 is free with that prebuild.

Thanks for the input, I'm going to pass on this and continue on the path to building my own. I had my mind all set and then I saw that and thought maybe, just need to stick to the plan.
