Usually, when you say that you are getting a pre-built "gaming" spec PC from retail stores, you are most probably overpaying. However, Walmart flipped the switch and teamed up with Esports Arena to build a line of gaming PCs and laptops with capable specs.

The "OVERPOWERED" brand is designed for gaming and it shows. Both specs and designs are decent compared to the ones release in previous years that are merely office PCs with some lighting and overpriced specs.

There are three laptop models with the most affordable one costing USD 999. It is called the OP Gaming Laptop 15 which has a 15-inch 144Hz display, Intel Core i5-8300H processor, 8GB of RAM, GeForce GTX 1050, 128GB SSD and a 1TB HDD.

There is a Plus version as well going for USD 1,399 that has a Core i7-8750H, 16GB of RAM, GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GPU, a 256GB SSD and a 1TB SSD. The 17-inch version goes for USD 1,699 and that has the same CPU and GPU as the Plus version but it comes with 32GB of RAM and bigger 2TB HDD as well as the same 256GB SSD. All three has a mechanical keyboard with RGB lighting, two USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C port and a USB 2.0 port.

There are also 3 variants for their gaming desktop PCs. They are the aptly named OP Gaming Desktop DTW1, DTW2 and DTW3. Each of these models has an Intel Core i7-8700 processor. The DTW1 has a GTX 1070, DTW2 has a GTX 1080 while the DTW 3 has a GTX 1080 Ti.

The only one currently available is the DTW2 which goes for USD 1,899. To complete the specs, it has 32GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. Along with the aforementioned, Core i7-8700 CPU and GTX 1080, the Walmart OP Gaming Desktop DTW2 is no joke.

What do you guys think? Should local department stores take cue from Walmart?
