The Potato Masher Character small

The Potato Masher is a computer custom-built in December 2014 for $350, and updated in late 2015 to 8GB RAM and $375. It’s designed to compete against the Playstation 4 for the duration of its lifecycle, and to show that a great PC gaming experience can be had for not much money. It also streams and records the CSG podcast and hosts our Minecraft and ARMA 3 servers. This is one of the first major projects funded by our Patreon, and we’re really excited about it!
