  1. Hey, Paul. I love your videos. This one in particular. I actually got my case and ssd from this video. I love them both. But, what's hard for me is trying to get the more expensive parts. Like a new motherboard or cpu, or gpu. It's difficult. Especially with whole Corona stuff, it's been impossible for me to get a job anywhere. I live with my partner since Im still in high school and we're not doing so hot. My mom barely makes enough to pay for bills and is soon to be on part time. I've been thinking about trying to stream or just make stupid little videos in hopes that could fuel not only my drive to build pcs but also a creative drive. I want to do more than just watch videos, you know? Anyway, you, Jaystwocents, GamersNexus, and others have been a huge inspiration to me. I appreciate what you guys are doing and wish you all the best.

  2. Hi, you need to change the price tag from $550, looking at the parts you have suggested in the UK the price tag is £800+, and that is NOT in dollars? Can you justify the $550? Davi

  3. My son wants to build his own pc for Christmas…this is perfect video explaning everything ..ill go with a 8gig video card thought great work sir you got yourself a subscriber..

  4. when a $550 pc is better than my $850 pre built
    Me: (Big sad that I didn't know much about pc's when I got my gaming pc) bruh.
