What was the worst build you have seen yet?

I personally have experienced a few terrible desktops, but I also want to know you guys' experience.
The worst desktop I have seen is one I have seen literally EVERYWHERE.
GPU: GT 710 (says it all)
CPU: Q6600 (does anyone even use these anymore? even the gt 710 could be bottlenecked by this)
RAM: 2x 1GB ddr sticks (no number????)

Cooler: mans didnt put a cooler on his build. surprised it worked for the short 15 minutes it did.

I think that says it all.

my terrible laptop: CPU: i5-2450M at 2.60 ghz base (however goes up to 3.30 ghz on any steam game i run. odd.) GPU: integrated Quadro NVS 4200m (garbage. the reason that this is terrible.) 6GB of ram, 300GB HDD. refurbished Dell Latitude Esomething. got it for like 140 bucks on amazon.

The Walmart Gaming PC

I'm assuming by walmart gaming pc you mean that "overpowered" BS? That's literal junk. If I could just buy the case only I would.

Ah yes. It's "Overpowered" because it's Walmart. A PC for a bit more than 1000 dollars with 100 dollar Optiplex quality.

Oh definitely not that bad, Q6600 + 1050Ti is pretty common before the previous crypto mining craze and bottleneck is minimal.

Those things overclock like crazy.  Go beyond 4GHz and they have no problem keeping up with a GTX770.

 

Anyway, The Verge will hold the title of "worst build" for quite some time.  Jay and Kyle both built a PC completely wrong on purpose and the end result still was better.

Probably the computer they used for the ink department at this screen printing place i worked at. it was a prebuilt, but they never ever cleaned it and put it under the counter and pretty much forgot about it. this bad boy was still running windows vista in 2018. anyway we would do a lot of work with metallic inks and we'd have to mix aluminum into the inks to make them look metallic. needless to say the bottom side of that counter had dust and powder aluminum everywhere. Considering aluminum is a conductor i don't give that pc very long to live.

Everyone has their memories, my memories of it were my specs being at high utilization without opening anything.

Pinnacle back in the 90s, though.

 

Each Athlon MP is a single core/single thread CPU.

The pathetic file server at my office, a Dell Vostro from 2010:

 

-C2D E7400

-2gb DDR3

-1tb platter drive

-The factory power supply, that the fan wore out in and I took apart and re-soldered another into

 

It's crap, and I want to put other guts in there so I can maybe run a VPN for offsite file access. I've got an Athlon 870k + Asrock A88X board + 16gb 2133mhz DDR3 sitting around waiting for another use.

My Current Setup:

AMD Ryzen 2700X 50th Anniversary

Corsair Vengence LPX 3200mhz 16GB

MSI B450 Gaming Plus

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

PNY GTX 1060 6GB

ADATA SU800 1TB

EVGA G3 750W

RAIDMAX Monster II

beQuiet PureWings 3 140mm x5

The only saving grace of it is that at most there are three workstations using it at any point in time, and none of the software we use is particularly file-transfer-heavy (CAD and building modelling). Still, it was basic web-surfing-grade tech almost a decade ago.

I'd rather overclock a laptop CPU till it reaches 100 degrees than use that in 2010. Even for 2010 standards that is garbage.
