    Just found your channel today Jason! My 950 Gtx died on me 2 days ago. The system itself was 7 years old. And that card was 3 year expired warranty 🙄. So any new equipment i put in that box is a fruitless endeavor. Sooo, brand a new build with these new m.2 slots is actually really going to be something. A question if i may? these new boards with integrated audio is there a need for an audio card anymore? And what about network cards? Are those needed too? Or can i for go those as well.

    Great channel Jason you really have given me much to think about.

  2. STARGAMER on November 30, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    Too much work for a lazy bum like me so I’d rather buy a pre built one

  3. Starting Side husle on November 30, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    Graphic cards
    LD lights
    Power supply
    WiFi adapter.

    Kudos to you! 👍

  7. Hello Boy on November 30, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    To see if parts are compatible with your mother board or parts withought knowing knowledge about pc use pc part picker it shows if the parts your buying is compatible

  8. 616 on November 30, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    Do you help with issues with computers?
    Because i have fps drops while playing
    And i have a high end computer

  9. Bomby on November 30, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    Should I buy a refurbished pc from nzxt?

  10. Hobo_YTT on November 30, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    Hello, asking for advice, im confused on how ram and vram correspond. Like how a gpu and cpu must be compatible or it will bottleneck, what happens if i have a lower vram or lower ram compared to the other? I am trying to run a 3060ti and it has 8gb of vram, but i want 16gb of ram…Will these two bottleneck or affect performance in any way?

  11. John Stancliff on November 30, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    with windows 11 now out, you need to do a video on TPM modules and why you need them… when I bought my MSI AM3 board 10 years ago, I bought the TPM module for my board. even though I didn’t need it, it was an accessory that needed to be purchased. right now, with all thats going on… the TPM Modules have gone from a mere $13.00 to over $50.00 and thats bad… If you ever do a video on the TPM, make sure you cover compatibility and installation. why these were never intagrated onto the motherboards, I’ll never understand… just like Chassis Intrusion….an option that no one knows about except IT pros.thank you for the video, it was quite helpful…

  12. ItzsMeAight on November 30, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    Want a pc but don’t have space I’m working hard to get a gaming laptop

  14. Azazel on November 30, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    RGB is the dumbest thing ever

  15. Diego Acevedo on November 30, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    I’ve been trying to get a pc for a while but I don’t know anything about them, your videos have been very helpful. Do you think it’s a better idea for me to choose all parts I want in my pc and have it built somewhere or should I get each part and build it myself? Again I don’t know anything about building a pc so it would be difficult to do it I hear prebuilt pc are not good so I don’t know.

    Also I have two cats that shed quite a bit and my pc would go in the designated “cat room” is hair going to be an issue?

    Can B55I Aorus Pro AX run dual channel and dual rank memory

  17. Connor Johnson on November 30, 2021 at 12:19 pm

    I am looking to upgrade my GPU, CPU, and Ram. I am having a lot of trouble affording a GPU. Do you have any recommendations on a GPU that I can buy for $400 or under in the market currently?

  18. Med •-• on November 30, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    I play games and edit pretty decently with my apu Ryzen 7 5700g
    Planning on getting a dedicated gpu later tho

  19. eksine on November 30, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    I’ve built probably over half a dozen desktop PC’s in my life since the 486 days and when the internet just began and the PSU is the most confusing part because graphics card and motherboard power requirements change so fast. I feel like you just glossed over that part too quickly. For example I remember a decade or so ago for some hardware you needed and extra power cable to supply the graphics card or motherboard with the extra power it needed, without it they won’t work. So stuff like that being explained would be helpful

  20. hands down on November 30, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    I have a question. I want to spawned in more traffic vehicles in BeamNG drive game. What Hardware will I need to make it run smoother? Better graphics card, ram or GPU?

  21. FriskeCrisps on November 30, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    Would be so great to build a PC if prices weren’t so damn high right now

  22. statutoryape90 on November 30, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    Where can I find this ASUS – ROG Gaming Desktop – AMD Ryzen 7 3700X – 16GB Memory – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 – 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD

  24. Brent Potter on November 30, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    after building, how do you load windows? any tutorials?

  25. S1QuanA on November 30, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    this guy has the same energy as Saul Goodman

  26. AJ on November 30, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    Do you think it’s worth it to buy a gpu right now?

  27. Midaysnack on November 30, 2021 at 12:33 pm

    Finally someone who explains the difference between the m.2 and nvme. 2 days of searching lol. Subbed!

  28. [MorningStar] on November 30, 2021 at 12:35 pm

    Cats and PC parts. That’s cool.

  29. Rayven Hitt on November 30, 2021 at 12:35 pm

    I’m building a "casual build" for my mom, just for daily browsing and stuff. I plan to get the i3-10105F due to local price:quality factors (Ryzens are pricey). I’d need some advice!
    1. Higher quality and upgrade/resalle potential 3-5 years down the line OR a basic, barebones build for a low cost? Basically H510 vs B560/H570/Z590.
    2. ASUS TUF B560M PLUS
    is highly recommended, but I’m curious if the older age is a concern, for example for out-of-the-box CPU compatibility? The newer ASUS PRIME B560M-A
    , MSI B560M PRO-VDH, GIGABYTE B560M AORUS PRO AX (rev. 1.0)
    and MSI Z590-A PRO
    also caught my eye – 105e vs 115e vs 130e vs 140e vs 155e in local prices.
    3. I was planning to use my old Ati 4770 HD as the GPU, just to get the job done; I can upgrade to i3-10105 with integrated GPU, but it would cost 30-40e more. Worth it?

  30. Skies on November 30, 2021 at 12:35 pm

  41. Anup Shivakumar on November 30, 2021 at 12:49 pm

    Hi. I want to build a PC, But is it good choice to buy AMD Ryzen 5600x and ASUS TUF Gaming B550 Motherboard now? Or should i wait for AMD’s next release AM5 socket processors?

  42. DGator 72 on November 30, 2021 at 12:51 pm

    Am I missing something with these GPU’s? They are all over $1k??

  43. OchaTime on November 30, 2021 at 12:51 pm

    All you need is 5600G.

    And ram.

    And a motherboard.

    And an SSD.

    And a power supply.

  44. PC Builder on November 30, 2021 at 12:53 pm

    *NOTE: I misspoke in the video. Intel H570, not H510, motherboards allow memory overclocking in addition to Z490, Z590, & B560.*
    I hope this gets folks started on their PC Building Journey! What are your plans/hopes for building a new PC? Where are you in the process?

  45. Adam Sarwar on November 30, 2021 at 12:54 pm
