After seeing the silliness that was the Walmart OP PC line, I wanted to see if I could make a 1080p 60FPS gaming PC using only parts available from Walmart.com. They key components are the Ryzen 2200g and the RX570. Both are excellent price for performance parts if you can get a good deal for them. I managed to snag the 2200g just as prices were going back up from the holiday sales and I went with the MSI RX 570 because I had bad experiences with Sapphire in the past. Other than those two, the rest of the parts are basically just what was the cheapest I could find or price match.
Edit: The only thing not bought from Walmart.com is the Windows 10 key. Got that on eBay.
This thing is a miracle for cheap gaming PCs. Most mid-range GPUs will never be held back by it.
This was my first experience with MSI motherboards and it won't be the last. This thing is bare bones, but it still has everything you need for a cheap build. The only thing I would change if I could is the white LEDs on the back right of the board, which do not change with the rest of the LED connected to the LED header and the line on the bottom left of the board. The brown coloring is very dark and doesn't clash much in a dark case.
It's memory and has low latency. It works.
I got this before I learned the difference between drives with and without cache memory. This drive does not have caching and it is noticeable when compared with an ADATA SU650 with the same price and capacity. Will not be getting one again.
Cheapest terabyte drive I could find at the time. It works, though it rattles a bit in the case I chose for it.
This card runs games at 1080p at 60 FPS with no issues at all. Temperature as stock never went above 70c under load.
Cheap tempered glass case with some issues. The one I received had two defects and one design flaw. The front IO USB ports didn't work correctly, but Corsair quickly sent a replacement IO for it and it was easy to replace. The mounting holes for the tempered glass panel weren't positioned correctly so the glass is very difficult to get on. And the design flaw is the lack of a passthrough for EPS power over the top of the motherboard. I ended up passing the cable under the motherboard through the CPU backplate access hole. Other than these issues, the case was easy to build in and is a solid choice if you want tempered glass no matter the consequences. Just get two more fans since it only comes with one.
Easily able to keep a Ryzen 2200g and an RX 570 powered on with LED strips and the works. This was an experiment to see how low I could go with a power supply. 450 might be more than enough for most modern mid-ranged PCs.
More fans need to come in packs like this.
