  • The motherboard/graphics card DP thing is something that certainly need to me more clear. I had a friend who complained about lag and stuttering. After hours of troubleshooting we figured out he was using the Intel onboard graphics instead of the graphics card.

  • As a physician with an interest in building a gaming PC for the first time, Linus did not help me getting confidence of doing it alone, poor Sarah. I want to invite Linus to put some stitches on a man’s head without telling him what tools to use, how to clean the wound, how to inject the anesthesia, and how to avoid the drunk guy to hit you while doing it.

  • I used quarantine to build my own pc last summer. I so sympathize with some of her problems but I was more confident since my first computer was an Apple II. I got used to installing cards in it in the 80s, so the mobo & cards didn’t intimidate me. The cpu and fan were my biggest concern. But it all worked on first boot and it runs great. I feel like building a pc is like a Jedi building his own lightsaber.

  • Here in eastern europe we don't really have big system builders from whom you can buy. some bigger it store's have some of their "prebuilt" pc's. They are just off the shelf components with 10-30usd extra for delivering it installed and assembled. Or u can just walk in any small it shops in the city with the parts you orddered, and ask them to build it and install windows on it for around 20$.

  • Girls / Women can be fantastic consistent knowledgable technical workers - it's really just training and attitude that makes the difference. This video mostly just enforces stereotypes. Linus makes for 'fair enough' comments re component selection but it comes over to me as a comedy show, however well meant. Smart kid though - you came through in the end.

  • When I first put a graphics card into my first computer in 2005ish. I was 14 or 15 and it's odd to think of the early 2000's as "BACK IN MY DAY!" anyway, I got my graphics card to play Elderscrolls Oblivion, I bought it when it first came out but didnt have enough graphics to play so BOOO. I saved up for months and got my GPU in and plugged my monitor in the same place it's been plugged in for years, NO SCREEN! My dad had to pay a guy $50 at a computer store down the road to tell us I put the monitor cord in the wrong place. So that sucked, but when I exited the sewers and got my first good look at Cyrodiil. Oh man it's still a sweet memory today.

  • This really makes me wonder how I managed to figure out how build PCs in the early 90s. The parts didn't have all that many interface pins or fingers, but you had to select the configuration using switches or jumpers and possibly select the right harddrive layout. And there were no helpful LTT videos on how to drop PC components. Also as a side note, when I got a 6800xt in december (at MSRP) I did manage to rip out the PCIe 16x retaining tab - the NH-D15 is just a major pain in that regard. I just put it back in and it works as before without damage to the socket or tab.
