Linus commentates while building the pc really effortlessly, he's probably done it thousands of times, it's just a second nature

How would this same build work with the Ryzen 5 3600 instead? Also with an EVGA 500w & 16GB ram. Appreciate any insight

Linus, mate, you rag on companies for selling pcs with a single stick of ram, but recommend starting with a single stick for upgradability. They might have the same thinking as you.

You're very fast with changing the bios settings without much explanation. Do you have a video on how to work on the bios, what to adjust, etc? If you don't have a video can you consider making one?

I basically have the same PC that I've just bought and about to build.. my PSU is the same but 600w, i3 10th gen 1200 socket, my 1650 is a different brand (Palit), I have a MSI Mortar Micro ATX and just the one Corsair NVMe 250GB SSD, I built it for £550.. but bear in mind, component prices are waaaaay more expensive because of COVID... also I spent more for 16GB Corsair 2400's. Still a great low-mid range gaming PC for the price I paid, I only need a better gfx and more SSD to really be competitive.

AMD’s the way for budget, AND the high end. AND they’re a big competitor in the gpu race. Who knows, they might end up making ram sticks, ssds, and might as well start making entire prebuilts.

You can definitely run both of those but only at 1080p. You may have to lower settings a bit to get 60fps but you can definitely run them.

I feel actually really happy with my setup. December of 2019 I got a ryzen 3600, 8gb of ram (now upgraded to 16), RX580 (8gb), 240gb ssd + 2tb Hard Drive for $600. It still games amazingly and was leaps better than my older i5 8400, 1060 3gb PC.

it depends how much storage you want, I would get the ssd and the hard drive as there isnt much storage in the ssd but if your on a tight budget just get the hard drive

been working as "assembler" in the backstore of a PC shop for 8 months, been paid ~150$/mo for it... had to make a config build in front with the customer, go to back and assemble it on the spot. My personal record is 4 mins, 17s / build, unboxing, assembling, repacking to case box and printing out the final invoice once it started in BIOS. the story and component details are on topic, but could signifficantly speed up the assembly by just doing it horizontally and using a magnetic tipped screwdriver, then just lift it up for last parts, like adding the PSU and cabling it... idk who came up with this stupid rule to assemble it vertically but it's just a pain... screws fall down, need to hold mobo in place while pushing againts I/O board, screw in....use gravity in your advantage ppl...

I think this year has been pretty hard on linus. It seemed like at the beginning of quarantine he posted the “I’m retiring video” but ever since covid started he’s had to CARRY the videos. I don’t see nearly as much of Alex and The minecraft server dude. And it looks like he’s loosing the boundaries of what his life is and his identity online. His wan shows getting diverted off topics, and he brings up ncix and his stories more. If you see this linus I hope you’re doing well and know that we the audience would rather you be happy and find some peace than burning yourself out and losing the time you could be spending with your family.

for game storage just get a used 1-2tb harddrive for $20, I wouldn't reccomend anyone to store any personal data on them tho and make sure that you also backup your safe files to your SSD.
