I was looking around on Newegg for out of boredom and was looking at some prebuilt gaming PCs. I couldn't help but notice that most of the specs are pretty good, but the most important one in gaming, the video card, was the cheapest and lowest end component in the entire computer.
Can someone clear this up for me? If I'm a gamer and I want a computer that's going to play the latest games on higher settings at decent framrates, wouldn't the supplier want to include a decent video card?
Because GPU's are expensive. Most morons that don't know much about computers see the core i3/5/7 sticker and know that more is better. They don't know about video cards. When something has an i5,i7 people assume it can run anything. Companies can charge out the butt for an i5 system with an awful GPU and still make a ton of money.
