  • Worst thing I did when building my rig was upgrading my video card to 1080ti which cost me $800, definitely not a cheap hobby and I lost most interest in gaming nowadays. Now I use my $1700 gaming tower for 90% work and 10% youtube

  • While looking to upgrade my RAM, I had the idea to search up some of my other components to see what else I could improve and how much it would cost My GeForce RTX 2060 was $183 when I bought it in 2019 and now it's over $1000...WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?????

  • I remember when I built my first computer it was a cool calm winter's day. I had gone to buy some apples from Mrs. Twiglet the greengrocer and she was delighted to see me, and wouldn't you know it why the computer store was right next door I was overjoyed and oh so happy to have stumbled upon such a store. I bought a case a power supply a CPU and some other cool stuff to make it work. I can almost remember the joy and enlightenment I felt when at first I switched it on and it lit up. I was oh so happy happy happy happy oh so happy!!!!! you know what I mean?

  • Great video; it was somewhat refreshing. But, it makes me think back to why the framers of the U.S. Constitution opted NOT to have a direct vote for the presidency. HINT: They were afraid of the emotional and whimsical rabble. (That said, I'm sure glad that Linus was in the peanut gallery, i.e., à la Monday morning sports commentator.)

Doing something you're not good/experienced at in front of a crowd of people (both in person and virtually) who are either very good or at least better than you takes huge stones. And to have such a fun attitude while doing it is really intoxicating to watch. More of Sarah, she's lovely!

  • And this is why I had to go through training at a vocational school just to feel confident enough to build. I was not able to do a test build before doing my massively expensive build, because I needed a build pretty much immediately. I happened to build before the GPU shortage really hit at its worst, and I happened to have my build go pretty much perfectly, and I had someone else also trained in computers to watch me and advise me on any small issues I was unsure about. I had been preparing my parts for a while, and even then I had to stop at least once to order something I needed and wait a day or two. At the end of the day, nothing will be more painful to me than installing the CPU fan. My god.
