    How *NOT* to build a gaming pc

    Ok, now this is kind of an old story, but oh man, if you didnít hear about this, over a year back ďThe VergeĒ put out a video where this moron tries to instruct people on how to build a Relatively high end gaming PC.

    I was recently reminded of it when I came across this super cut of a bunch of techies reacting to this and I gotta say, yes itís 20 minutes, but itís well, well worth your time if youíve ever built a PC and have an interest in this stuff, this, this is gold.

    By far my favourite bit is the When he installs the power supply, I **** a brick.

    Re: How *NOT* to build a gaming pc

    I am a long ways from being computer tech smart.....why are gaming computers so expensive?

    *edit: Holy Sh*t.....I just googled game computers and PC games popped up; how in the hell does a game ( World of Warcraft collector edition) cost over $4000??

    Not even.

    Apparently when they were called on the video they disabled like/dislikes and comments and then tried to DMCA some of the reaction videos and the guy took to twitter to brag his PC was better than the people criticizing him.

    It’s actually quite a bizarre story.

    Oh, im sure the producers pulled it with big brand behind the funding. But the actor was clearly trolling the video but probably impossible to prove. One of those deadpan trolls who probably hates his boss.

    Why is there no flux capacitor?

    I have no clue about building computers but when he suggested "Swiss Army Knife" it was over for me.

    What I learned from that video is Bitwit is awesome, and you should never teach yourself how to do something while making a video explaining how to do that very thing.

    I haven't seen that whole video, so it is kind of funny that I just got an inside joke from a recent Linus Tech Tips while watching this.

    He was building .. a Hackintosh, I think? And he said "first you need .. a table".
