Planning to do the $69 Gaming PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi! I’m planning to do the $69 gaming pc (a video by linus) but I was concerned by the cardboard near the graphics card. Will this affect the expierence? This will be my rig for a while. Maybe even a few years, but I want it to run like a normal pc. Image of the cardboard from the video is below, thank you!

I really like the specs on the Linus video, for the price I feel it’s worth it. I’ve already got it in my basket on eBay, just need to know if it’ll work like normal. My friend has a dell computer that runs well, and this would be the best pc I’ve ever owned.

so lets get some more details. what is your max bugget? do you care about looks?

 

best price performances is most like a workstation in an sff case witch would only allow  lp cards. yes you can buy an pcie cable and mout the gpu els were but that also adds cost to the build witch you could have just spent on a workstation with an atx case in the first place.

 

i mean local buy and sell sites you can find good $50- $100 pcs on there mite not have a good gpu in it and you need to make shur it has a big psu for w/e cpu/ gpu you going to use.
