  • NFSHeld

    I'd like to point out that in statistics we say "the average does not exist": 1) Take a large group of samples. 2) Make several (8+) measurements for different metrics on each individual piece. 3) Calculate the average per metric. 4) Try to find any item that matches the calculated average for each metric. There tends to be none. It's astonishing but it has been tested and proven several times. So in general, your build of the "average" gaming PC will most likely be the single most special gaming PC to exist, because there's most like no other PC with those specs for each metric.

    Don’t know if you ever thought about this Linus but in the last year and leading to know many are jumping to pc gaming. I was wondering if you ever would consider selling your mean lean steam machines that you built like these that are highly customizable for future parts and selling on your front page. Reason I ask is I have many friends who want to jump ship and I always recommend them your channel to get started but what better way then just purchasing a simple machine that can get them going like this.

    I run a 4c 8t xeon clocked at 3.3 ghz paired with a good old rx470 4gb. Love the system to death and although it struggles on some titles I've found most games can 60fps + and the games I most often play run at 144 fps + which is awesome for when I want to try to play competitive or I want to crank up the graphics and sacrifice some frames I can do that too. All around an awesome system (: you asked what we were running so here it is

    I just upgraded my 4th gen i7 systems to 9th gen i5 systems. Had a GTX970 and went to an RTX2070. I don't need the latest and greatest, because just a few generations behind does more than I need and cost me so much less. I really only decided to do the upgrade because I got my hands on two 8th/9th gen motherboards for free and figured it's time and the 4th gens were finally starting to show their age. But I still sold those two complete systems for probably about what I paid for the components I didn't yet have to build my two new systems.

    Running a 1050Ti and I am looking forward for a RTX 3070Ti because I want to play VR with my friends on a good and smooth framerate. And you slowly notice how games that were smooth 2 years ago now run a bit slower due to graphics upgrades and stuff. But some run smoother becasue they try to optimize it for the average player. Trying to get my hand on a nice rtx and then having some vr fun :D

  • Sparky

    Linus needs a scriptwriter to tell him 3 days in advance what he thinks about gaming performance. What do you do when your tech channel had grown to the point that the guy who built and named is just a shell of a host who doesn't have time or motivation to form an opinion? Sell the channel to Disney, probably. Or stop pretending and hire a Ryan Secrest type to host while you build out your own video hosting platform. Because why even bother when Google's keeping 80% of your ad revenue?

And I just realized that even though Euro and Dollar were almost the same one year ago (0.94) the Dollar has plummeted so hard that 850€ are now 1025$ Edit2: And 850€ are 1300 in Canadian Dollar

    Actually, this machine and my are compareable. I got the RX 580 8G, which, as far as I know, is as fast as GTX 1060 6G. On top of that there is a Ryzen 7 2700X with an X470 Gaiming Pro Carbon, 2x 16GB 3000 (2933) MHz in Dual Channel, an 500GB M.2 NVMe, a 1TB and a 250GB HDD. All this is powered by a Straight Power 11 650 Watt PSU. And a WIFI-card coz it's 10-15 times faster than powerline.
