  2. can you make a video explaining why and how is it that DDR5 is impossible to get? who ever thought that stupid RAM would be the star of a damn pc build? this is just ridiculous.

  3. 45 FPS at the absolute most generous measurement in Rocket League jesus living bitwit if anything needs to be built in a case that'll catch fire it's this. This is practically the disappointment build of 2021 prebuilt.

    If I wanted to play retro games I think I'd be better off with a £30 Raspberry pi, or hell, even the original Nokia 3310.

  4. BRUH GT 430 ?!?!?! I have an Old gaming laptop with a 9800M GTS from 2008 that STILL perform better that this garbage. Omg that thing is horrific.

  5. is my $1K 4-yr-old i5-8600k gtx1080 system actually far better than this heap of crap? i am so disappointed in the scummy tactics of some of these sorry prebuilt companies these days… sheesh!

  6. Wow, GT 430. That's worse than the i5-10400 UHD-630 integrated graphics. I have a old Xeon E3-1240v3 Workstation w/ Quadro K600 as a backup computer, all this time I thought the graphics card was a basic display out: I DiDn'T kNoW iT wAs A GaMiNg CoMpUtEr!

  7. The summary and comparison pages list 16GB but the specs listed in "about this item" and the description above it say 8. Someone goofin' around over there on the keyboard.
