    PC Secret Shopper returns - with a twist. In this episode, Agent Sarah investigates the experience of building a computer herself with the help of PCPartPicker to determine whether it's better to buy a pre-built PC, or DIY.

Motherboard and case manufacturers really need to come up with a standardized front panel i/o connector (similar to USB headers). All the little fiddly wires are archaic.

I loved that conclusion because yes anyone's first pc build is going to be difficult unless you know someone because it is a skill you have to develop. SInce I didn't know any builders my first build was a train wreck looking back but now that I have been through several builds its one of the most rewarding things when you finally look at a final project and get a good benchmark score and know that you had a hand in that. That's why I love it when someone asks me to help them build a pc.

She did an amazing job honestly for a first timer i would be stressed out of my mind of i had Linus watch over me, she had all me emotions throught the roof i was right there with you Linus however I do have one question though, did she use two or four screws for the case fans and why did she make it seem like building a PC was on her bucket list. Honestly though great video great job #LMG

Okay, I'm confused. Why did she, at no point, check the manual? There's a lot of very basic questions that she struggled with that would have easily been answered by taking a glance at that.

In all fairness, while it's not NVMe, the MX500 is a plenty respectable SATA SSD. And, in terms of gaming workloads, you're really not missing out on too much by not having NVMe.

It's a bad idea if you weren't taught research skills and the art of how to buy things., and don't know *why* you want the components. Also, being poor helps in this particular process. I built my own desktop in 2015 for $300; over the years, upgrades have brought the cost to around $1000. All of its limitations now have to do with the motherboard. Everything starts with he motherboard. But because of my limited funds, I had no choice but to figure the most I could get for the least amount of money. I looked at forums. I read more than one review. I watched You Tube videos, including some from Linus Tech. I couldn't be like "oh, this site says this, that sounds nice, I guess I'll drop $200 on it".

As someone who has never built a pc, this has been much more informative than many other tutorials. There's something about learning what to look out for that sticks. Entertaining and informative. Perfect combo!

I despise people who respond with useless responses. I was expected someone to respond with something that had no more information than I got a similar PC for $1500. My most hated response is to a question like - is anyone else having an issue with ... (e.g. the newest patch for x) - and someone replies I'm not having a problem.

She was fine. After a 1000 YouTube videos linus tech tips and etc. In 2017 i bought my first diy parts. Then broke off the AMD cpu plastic bracket. I was thinking back then its Linda like Intel where u have a plastic cover on the pins. I was so wrong. Now in 2021 i made about 2000 gaming PC-s at a company. I want to say everyone started somewhere. 🙂

The biggest tragedy of all of this is everyone just resigned to paying triple for a graphics card right now. There’s a whole generation of kids who are being pushed out of PC gaming and will never return.

RAM by color is about as useful as case lighting. Who cares if the box over on the other side of the desk, on the shelf, on the floor, whereever glows? I'm not looking at my case. Sorry, too focused on the monitor...you know the visual output part of the build. visual=where your eyes are supposed to look.

This wasn't the video I was expecting, but I loved it! I feel that if she can do it, I can do it XD I considered hiring someone to do the assembly because I was so scared of breaking something (also the thermal paste, that looked like a scary step) but seeing how she wiggled everything and didn't break anything... I think I'll be okay
