Nvidia Wants to Bring Old PCs Back from the Dead With Gaming "Revival Kit"

By Gary Cutlack on at

Nvidia's had an idea for a Christmas present you could get your dad -- a box of PC upgrades to bring any old lump up to a decent modern standard that should be able to manage most of the newest games at decent-ish settings, as long as you plug it all in right and have a CPU that's not so old it has wood veneer sides.

Of course, it all hinges on your PC having the right and modern enough bits to plug all of the box's contents into, as if you're working with a 2006-spec Dell Mini Inspiron you probably won't be able to do much with an MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GB OC Twin Frozr graphics card anyway.

The rest of the box -- with its EU RRP of €399 (£335) -- contains a Corsair Force Series LE 240 SSD for whacking up your general desktop performance, a Corsair CX450M PSU for running it all off and...  a download code for Gears of War 4 for Windows 10 and a t-shirt to wear while feeling good about the work you just did with your little screwdrivers.

It was spotted by Video Cardz in adverts in Spanish, so it might only be for them and not for us. [Video Cardz via PC Gamer]
