So I'm fairly new to PCs, but I've been slowly learning the ropes, learning components etc etc, and I was browsing online for a Gaming PC (Not to buy, I was just looking) and I came across these PCs which even I know with my noob level of skill that these are highly overpriced! Check it out:

I paid 2k for my PC, which has a GTX 1070 8GB, Ryzen 5 1600X @ 3.6GHz and 16GB DDR4 RAM. I haven't listed anything else because I have no clue about the other components, but I already know just from those few components my PC is better than one of them, and I paid a fraction of the price.

i dont know how much a canadian dollar is worth but those prices are crazy high.

i like how they add things to the Pc description that dont actually mean nothing to the value

"expert gaming Pc" "Usb 3.1" "HDMI2.0" "4K resolution"  and in between the specs AMD 1600x/GTX1060/8G 2666MHZ

4100$ LMAO

 

 

6500$ for i5-7600k /1080TI ?

Ikr. I like how they're called 'Expert' Gaming PCs lol.

Even still, $4200 for this https://www.fishpond...#!9999205743071is extremely overpriced, even I know that. That is overpriced to an extreme level. I have a better GPU, and I paid $2200 less.

 

I know why they've done this though, it's to trick people like me into buying while thinking that that's a fair price. However, I don't understand why someone wouldn't do research if they had no prior knowledge and where about to buy a Gaming PC.

i dont think they can trick anyone, someone that dont understand a thing abount pcs wont go and spend 4000+ on one, at least not without researching prices of other prebuilts.

mine is around 4000$ in and that is already with peripherals more expensive then what is needed like the monitor and keyboard/mouse, watercooling and a VR headset. For the case alone, i dont think i went over 2000$ at all
