    i briefly hooked up a sound system with subwuffer for movies. but using a good quality headphones seemed more considerate. i like the idea of the option so i'm juggling between audio features, size as i like my itx case and may want to put my build into it despite having a decent though thin as tin foil game case that would allow for additional slots. the deciding factor is usb count- i have a fare few e-drives i like to keep hooked up!

    I use my PC for video editing and AV creation and use all 5.1 outs for sound. I create 5.1 soundtracks so these outs are essential. I used to use a Soundblaster card with daughterboard and front panel I/O. Brilliant.

    somehow i'm still able to build a gaming pc for 600$. Guess people are just too lazy or too busy. Or maybe I just have too much time on my hands. If you're trying to get into PC gaming, and you want to upgrade then ur probably fck'd. But first PC builds? yeah EZ 600-800$ for a decent machine better then xbox one x at least maybe not series s/x but 100% better than then one X

    2003 called and told me how much I loved my Klipsch Promedia 5.1 speakers that were packaged with my first gen HP Media Center, yes, that version of Windows XP. Truely the most inmersive gaming experience I have ever had. Had because the BASH amp in the sub failed, but not after working for about 9 VERY HARD years.

  • Dan

    LINUS NOOOOOO. why would you use the dongle of the gpu cable to power the second gpu port. :(( it my work for a budget card, but wouldn't it be best practice to just use two cables to ensure power delivery? hooking the second port up off the dongle flappy bit encourages power throttling of the card due to the amount of power each cable set can take off the power supply?

    At least it is an H510 case, not an H1 case. Otherwise it'd definitely be more bang for your buck, if by bang you mean 'on fire'.

    I'm looking to upgrade my trading pc I've had for 3 years now. I have a Zeon e-5 1620, 24 ram, m2000 vc, 500 ssd and a smaller back up. I use 4 to 6 screens most of the time. It seems everything is for gaming or mining now. I do none of that at all. I usually have up an Etrade account, TOS and 2 live streams. Since I do no mining,gaming or editing. Any suggestions for processors and etc parts based on what I only use this pc for. Thank u and great channel.

    Bang for the buck !! When has a 750 rated ( fully modular) PSU been needed for a bang for buck build ? Linus knows his stuff but I can’t help but think a ‘ probationer ‘ complied this shopping list 🤪 Can your sponsor pls open a store in the uk, buying any PC components over here sucks when it comes to in store shopping.

    axGear PCIe to USB 3.1 Type-E Front Panel Socket Adapter Card for $23 www.newegg.com/p/2RC-037W-00003 I know this was a Microcenter sponsored build, but I found the USB Type-C header to PCIe (pictures says 3.0 2x) Model: PCE1U1E-A31 Named: axGear PCIe to USB 3.1 Type-E Front Panel Socket Adapter Card Express for Motherboard. Also provides a single Orange or Red, seems to state it is a 2.0, USB Type-A internal port TIL: The USB Type-C cable has an industry name and is called the obvious: "USB 3.1 Type-E"

    Nearly every cheap computer speakers setup that was surround (so 5.1 or different) was analogue. I actually use my 7.1 output on my mobo. Have an old 5.1 Genius speakers and an stereo mini Hi-Fi system connected to it (basically using 5.1 as all surround/centre/sub and mini Hi-Fi as front left and right). Don't really have space/cash/need for anything fancier for now ;)

    Soooo... What Micro Center did _you_ shop at? I checked every Micro Center within the state I am in, plus the neighboring 3 states and *_NONE_* of them have any graphics cards that would be even remotely considered reasonable for modern gaming. And it has been that way for more than 6 months. So I call bullshit on this video. Because there is no way in Hell you went to an actual store to buy those parts. At least the graphics card was sent to you. They had footage of them "finding" a planted graphics card to make it look like they have some in stock, when they don't. No joke, the best graphics card my local Micro Center has is a piece of shit 1050 Ti. Heh, and it is so precious to them that it is only available in-store(LOL!!!!)
