    Do you really have to use an ankle strap?

    Personally I have the Ryzen 5 1600x and you said your price per performance was based off the included cooler which you then didn't use but that's whatever. I find that the better single thread performance of the 1600x makes it much better at gaming, also I have a 1070 and I found my self with 2666 ram out doing most of these benchmarks (none sli) if you're gonna get this build go for the ryzen 5 1600x, it's £20 more but worth it.

    ryzen 5 1600 stock cooler 3.7 ghz 1.28 voltThere is definitely no point in buying a 40 dollar cpu cooler just to overclock it to 4.2 ghz for a mere small percentage increase in improvement.

  • Youtube Trash South Africa

    Great ,now I'm gonna spend the whole time worrying about whether he's actually wearing pants or not...

  • ThirtyOne Fifty

    I would build this set up if i had 1500 or less. This is a perfect rig for both beginners and professional gamers.

  • Bullrider

    What do u mean you will be able to play "most" modern titles. You can play any game with the 1600 and a good graphics card.

  • myskater 23

    that intro is AESTHETIC

  • Stuart Walker

    wtf is this episode budget 2 1070. coulda got a 1080ti, x370 lmao ??????

  • Evil Nugget

    I picked up a Ryzen 5 1600 for 150 on eBay

  • Ecorigon IV

    I swear linus is incapable of using parts that the average joe will generally buy. SLI 1070's. Really? I was expecting a more budget build like a ryzen 5 and a 1060.

  • Frantix Raxx

    Why is Luke spliced into the video at 02:21 lol #Linus

  • Noah G Drums

    Here is is a cheap rygzen system, you know, the kind Linus can't seem to comprehend.

  • Nicolas Rodriguez

    Budget build:CPU: Ryzen 3 2200GMobo: Gigabyte GA-AB350M-DS3H --- Dont get fooled by the name. Its not X350 Chipset, its X370RAM: 16 GB DDR4 2666GHz Patriot Signature Storage: Adata SU650 120 GB + Any 1TB drivePSU: EVGA 450 80+ BronzeCase: Rosewill Microcomputer case Micro ATXGraphics: GTX 1050 TiYou can run EVERY modern game with this setup, but don't expect to play all of them at 1080. You can for example on CS:GO, League of Legends, Dota 2, any call of duty.637.94$

  • djay T-b

    "great price"

  • wilson brown

    I'm sorry Linus but sli? Thats a terrible price to preformance

  • Opiophobia

    NO ONE ELSE NOTICED HIS FACE at 2:20 when he said "slick settings???!!?""

  • christos karagiannidis

    What happens if you use ram that is not in amd's list of supported memories?

  • Harry Jawanda

    Can someone help me Do the ryzen 5 1600X come with a cpu cooler

  • gradient602

    This video helped me pick out and build my first actual PC build! NO MORE PREBUILDS FOR ME!! Really helped me on a couple parts I was unsure of too! I did go with the lower spec options you spoke of, AB350 gaming 3 mobo instead and I had to use a 4gb GTX 960 I had laying around because its what i could afford to do. The system is awesome and your step by step instructions really helped me build my first PC big time into my Phanteks 400s. This way Waaaaay better then the other build video I saw. Thank you so much for putting out a great step by step video! I'm glad I subbed after your video helped me, you videos are great! Gave me the confidence I needed to take the plunge! My gaming experience is now FANTASTIC!

    Even Linus's Budget/Bang for your buck build is extreme in "normal" world.

  • Raul Candanedo

    Bro there is something I did not understand in the video you connected the heatsink pump to the 3-pin CPU FAM port or to another 4-pin port the AIO PUMP?

  • Ibee Idrees

    Can you stop being funny

  • Mineshock2011

    Why there was a flash of Luke's forehead?

  • Tarek Easa

    nice photo frame at 2:20 :) . what he is doing in the video ??

  • TeModen

    watching all these vids on how to build a good (or budget) PC. Yeah, tell me more about 2k$ PC, I earn 400$/month working as a fire safety/fire allarm/evacuation systems engineer. American budget is more like a Ukrainian luxury

  • Braden Scott

    Linus, only you have enough money to wait for all of ryzen's things. Normal people could wait for one.

  • Özgün Çalışkan

    I built mine a few months ago but with a more bugdet oriented approach. My system was built on Asus B350M Tuf series motherboard with Ryzen 1600X, Gigabyte Windforce GTX 1060 3 gb, 16 gb(8+8) 3000mhz Corsair Vengeance rams, 250 gb WD Blue SSD, 1 tb Seagate BarraCuda HD in Zalman R1 case that came with 600 W psu. Since I chose 1600X I also added Xigmatek CPU cooler. Zalman R1 came with 3 fans included. My main purpose is not gaming so I chose Viewsonic 23,8" VA2419SH monitor and Logitech MK235 keyboard with a basic M170 mouse(it was a set actually and I have another mouse) I of course did my research at that time but I wasn't watching LinusTech then. Now I see that most of my parts are the same. So, what do you think about my system? I am an architect so this built was mainly 2d-3d design oriented among other things.

  • Tyler c

    b350 boards wont work with ryzen 2nd gen anyway. Unless you buy an A series cpu to update the bios first. So stupid.

  • Emi Kadiev

    This guy used a 1tb ssd and i have ordered an adata ultimate su800, which only has 128 gb. I'm doing a build with a ryzen 5 cpu and a 1070 ti, although I am getting a 1 tb hard drive, did i rly undershoot the ssd?

  • Merp the Totally Radical Bodacious Awesome Dude

    2:20 Did anyone else notice luke's face?

    I had an AMD processor in my system, happily changed it for an intel and would never buy another AMD.
