You make some careless mistakes. Dropping and banging components, and stripping screws, isn’t something I would be proud to show the world on DEpost.

If you have 4 slots for RAM, and have 2 sticks, does it matter where they go? They need to be next to each other, or do you skip one and put them in slot 1, and 3? Wasn't sure if they were configured by channels like, 1 and 2, then 3 and 4.

People here comment about price change between this video going online to current price... Linus is in Canada, but I think he priced this computer at $500 USD. So when I click on those links, it is automatically going to be $1000 thanks to the currency conversion rate from USD to Canadian Rubles.

jest processor and motherboard alone 400 Canadian befor tax and shipping god i love living in a country where our money is about the same as using Monopoly money. and if iam right that's only A 4 core,i literally have a Acer Media Center desktop that id a 4 core that somebody threw out here a while back with a a hem Windows 8 operating system on it ,i still feel severely ill using the words Windows 8. i bout a ssd new brand name including shipping cost about $30 and no its not a junk no name its a pretty decent SSD that I use in a couple of laptops that I use on a daily basis.its strictly a operating system Drive. iam scared to think about what somebody paid for that Tower.80 for the tower seriously? i Would probably have people pitching a nerd boner over the stupid amount of gaming towers that I have and each one of them somebody threw out 3 years or less after buying and building a machine that kind of logic still has my head hurting.a few are similar to the one line is used here and 1 in particular I have to try and clean up where it's been abused is a tower that was around 300 when it was sold,i can barely lift the thing it is just Giant red behemoth vut it's at this point scratched up and covered in stickers which was the way I got it.its the biggest tower that I have and the most offset where it was bright red. Usually anyting I get is grey or point is pricing these parts and I keep getting the stuff five years or less of the people buying it and they're throwing it out?i know somebody's going to make a speech about a small formfactor Acer Windows 7 is about a 10 year old machine,its still ddr 3 or ddr4 I forget which short of playing around with it again. it already has 4 or 6 gig of ram in it and i have at least 14 options for graphics cards sitting in a Rubbermaid container where I've been piling them up over the last year or so and haven't gotten around to seeing which one is what other than their big monsters with fans all over them lights and so on lol and usually fairly heavy. i have some ddr2 gaming rigs that are 3. Something dual-core and i have the ram where I can wrap them up to like eight gig and every last component is stuff that people throughout. 550 American is close to damn near a thousand Canadian with the exchange rate and people are acting like its jest a entry level gaming rig? Just making my skin crawl that people have that kind of disposable money for something they are not even going to probably keep three years and repeat the process all over again.i I was expecting the motherboard to be about $100 and the processor be about a hundred or a hundred and fifty Canadian where are this thing is supposed to be a budget build machine.

Lots of people use the B450M Pro4 Motherboard - I don't get that because if you boot from SSD you cannot also boot from hard drive. This is bad for those who like to dual or triple boot. I use the B450M AC (AC means on board wifi) The Pro4 has nothing I need and had limitations.

Mine $700... Rog Strix B450 f gaming, R5 2600X, tower cooler, 650 watts, and MSI GTX 1660 Ti. I’m truly shocked to see these market prices on my rig right now. My rig is worth $1,200 in market today now because of GPU and 1660 Ti has gone up to $600 now even they are hard to find. Also, my mobo gone up to $140 too. I got mobo for $80 and R5 for $120 in 2019. I think it really sucks that people can’t build top end 1080p gaming PC for cheap anymore

No way. Not possible to build a pc for 500 bucks. Even dirt cheap new components in Canada would cost more than that. Safe to say, used components would cost more. That 1660 super is more than 500 bucks in Canada. We have to pay retail for our components. Start being realistic about the cost to consumers.
