Is your gaming PC on its last legs, struggling to cope, or otherwise not really fit for 1080p gaming? Nvidia has come up with a new idea to appeal to such users - its own boxed and branded 'PC Gaming Revival Kit'.
VideoCardz found this boxed bundle advertised in 'Spanish speaking countries'. Since the price is listed in Euros at €399, it sounds like the advert was actually found on a Spanish tech retailer's website.
Inside the Nvidia branded box you will find the following third party branded components, which VideoCardz has listed alongside their typical Euro selling prices:
- MSI GTX 1060 3GT OC Twin Frozr graphics card — 229 EUR
- Corsair Force Series LE 240 SSD — 77 EUR
- Corsair CX450M 80 Plus Bronze power supply — 51 EUR
- Gears of War 4 PC game– 45 EUR
Adding up the above gives €402. So the bundle isn't a bargain, even with the Nvidia T-Shirt also included in the box.
Nvidia's promotional blurb on the box states that the "PC Gaming Revival Kit will transform your computer into a real Gaming PC because it combines the best components to bring it to the next level, making start at an incredible speed, allowing you to enjoy graphics that you have never experienced..." It specifically mentions MOBA style games. On the back of the bundle box Nvidia claims the graphics card should provide an average of 40fps plus "better effects and more realism," while playing games at 1080p.
In summary, this isn't a bargain and is unlikely to be the perfect upgrade 'recipe' for very many users. And, if the market votes negatively with its £$€s, then we aren't likely to see many more of these Revival Kits.
