short answer: probably

long answer: didnt watch the video but from the thumbnail it has the rx 460, it is worse than the gtx 1050 (which is already a budget card) and being the laptop equivalent means even less power

but since overwatch is not that demanding of a game so you can probably get at least 60fps with a mix of high and medium settings

My wifes laptop with a 940GT runs OW on low/medium and a solid 60FPS in 720p and generally looks better/plays smoother than the Xbox One version.

No do not buy it you will have to upgrade the pc immediately.

Get a pc that has a i5 for a Ryzen 1500 or 1500x or 1600 or 1600x cpu

For the GPU you will need a 1050ti

Or a R9 290 or above any Rx 480 or a 580 on the AMD GPU side will do.

8gbs of RAM


Here is an example below.

don't do it.

I tried to go cheap last year and ended up spending way more money than needed to upgrade parts (extra 4 grand or so).

For that price you better have f***ed up a custom watercooling loop or something and had to redo it. Those specs aren't worth that much.

lets see.

6700k($350) to 6850k(back when it was $600) to 6900k ($1000). didn't sell any of the previous ones.

1070($450) to 1080($720) to 1080ti sli ($1600) . sold 1070 and 1080 at a lost ( spent 1170 for both of these but sold both for like 400 total to a friend/ 1080ti cost me $1600 because I paid for 1 day shipping when it was first released and also taxes)

650 watt g1 to 850 g2 to 1200 p2 (kept all my psu all of them combined is like $500-600)

technically bought 10 sticks of 8 gb ram ea this past year (don't use them all because of different speeds and from different manufacturers spent $600 total for all)

went through 2 different mobos ($150+ $350)

1tb 850 evo to 1 tb 960 evo pro (both are in rig bout $900 total )

bought a second cpu cooler and extra noctua fans probably like $200.

So yes a little over 7 grand actually since october 2016. Not including peripherals.

also currently my specs hit 4 grand.

even if you count gpu as $700 ea that is $1400

cpu is $1000 (a lil over actually)

1 tb 960 pro evo is currently $579

1tb 850 evo is $327 (my og build had a 1tb wd blue hdd before this one)

psu is $300

mobo is now $300 (bought for $350 though)

My 3301 mhz ram (says 3200 mhz in sig but I have to downclock it unfortunately) cost $330.



So yes current rig is a lil over 4 grand. The cpu and gpu may be cheap in general but the added cost of everything else sneaks up on you.
