Looking at an iBuyPower from Walmart because of how cheap it is, and simple convenience. Everything is great except they don't list the power supply. I was hoping for at least 400W, but how am I supposed to know...?

Thanks! :)

If it isn't mentioned, it's the generic standard ibuypower PSU, which is garbage. If you want to buy pre-built, just make one at CyberPowerPC (Same thing as ibuypower, but with more options)

Thanks, i'll look into it. But if I end up getting the ibuypower pc (and possibly swapping out the psu) Would an HDMI cable be fine to connect to a monitor? It only lists

1 x PS/2 keyboard port
1 x PS/2 mouse port
1 x coaxial S/PDIF Out connector
1 x optical S/PDIF Out connector
6 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports
2 x USB 3.0/2.0 ports
2 x IEEE 1394a ports
1 x RJ-45 port
6 x audio jacks (Center/Subwoofer Speaker Out/Rear Speaker Out/Side Speaker Out/Line In/Line Out/Microphone)

I'm just not entirely sure. This will be my first desktop, since my laptop is awful for any type of gaming. I'm not opposed to a homebuild, this just seems cheaper.

Does the mobo support HDMI? If not, then no. Save yourself the hassle of unknown components and just use CyberPower or the actual ibuypower.

Thanks. I'll have to check it out. I suppose it's impossible to find a good gaming pc for 600 or under.
I would love something like this, but it hasn't been in stock for a month.

Even that has an unknown PSU, and AMD really isn't that good for gaming. If you wanted to build yourself you could build a decent gaming PC for around that price, going pre built means around $800 for a good gaming PC.
