Nvidia Starts Offering PC Gaming Revival Kit
Samuel Wan / 1 year ago
As with many other consumer products, most PCs out in the wild are the store-bought OEM models. Generally speaking, most of these are aimed at the light home users and are designed to meet the bare minimum specifications required by the OEM. This means when it comes time to upgrade, the less tech-savy users may be at a loss at how to proceed. Nvidia is aiming to solve this problem with their new PC GAMING REVIVAL KIT.
As you expect from the title, the PC Gaming Revival Kit features the core components required to revive a PC for gaming. It comes with a total of 5 items for the user. First, we have the MSI GTX 1060 3GT OC for graphics, then the Corsair Force Series LE 240 SSD for speedy flash storage. Rounding off the components list we have the Corsair CX450M PSU which should be more than capable of handling most OEMs builds with the new graphics card and SSD. Rounding off the list we have a Nvidia t-shirt and a Gear of War 4 game code to get the new PC gamer started.
Just because it’s a bundle though doesn’t mean it has to have a discount though. At 399 EUR, it is pretty much priced at the sum of the regular priced components. It appears the goal isn’t to provide a bundled discount solution for new PC gamers. Rather, it is to allow prospective PC gamers to make only a single purchase that is more or less guaranteed to work together and provide a new PC gaming experience.
Right now, only a Spanish version of the kit exists so it remains to be seen if this is merely a regional offering or a more widespread one. Overall, it appears to a new and interesting way to tackle the issue of converting OEM PCs to gaming ones.
