The shortage of NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards has gotten so bad that select system builders have begun establishing new prebuilt gaming desktop lineups that don’t include GPUs. One of these is Fierce PC, a UK-based boutique builder that has begun advertising “No GPU Systems” lacking any sort of discrete graphics option. The retailer warned that prospective buyers will need one if they actually want their systems to boot up.

Introducing our range of systems, ready for you to install your own graphics card. This range of systems is not supplied with a graphics card and without a graphics card will not boot up. We ask customers to keep this in mind when ordering from this range.

Fierce PC’s new line of GPU-less systems range in starting price from £560 to £900 (around $775 to $1,245 in US currency). The least expensive build is a Micro-ATX systems with an Intel Core i5 9400F processor, Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 120 all-in-one cooler, MSI H310M Pro-VDH Plus motherboard, 8GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3000 RAM, 240GB WD Green SSD, 1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD, and 600W PSU (80 Plus Bronze).
