Building a PC... using only

Since you guys loved our Amazon basics and Monoprice builds, we decided to get just a little more sketchy and attempt to build a PC using only parts we purchased from Strap in folks, because I can pretty much guarantee that everything WON’T go to plan.

    The terminology to strap-on usually refers to putting on a rubber dildo, so when Linus said get ready and strap-on I don't know if he understood what he was saying? Maybe he meant to say buckle up which is not the same as strap-on.

    Try the Havit MS1006 for $7 if your looking for a budget gaming mouse. I know you may think that it may be a little to cheap but believe me, from my personal experience, it can compare with 100$ gaming mousses although it is just not as durable.

    I made the mistake of buying a a "GTX 1060," which (much like this one) had no 6-pin connector, and nearly fried my mobo. (Virtually everything functioned after this test, but it could no longer support my PCIe wifi card, which itself was thankfully undamaged.) Graphics were complete garbage and the game I used to test it (N. Sane Trilogy) kept freezing on startup. After reinstalling my old card and taking this one apart, I found out it was a 510 or some such junk.

    with those prices for what you got you guys are doing Wish wrong. what you are supposed to do is pay $200 tops for the lot. Including peripherals. But yeah don't buy PC hardware on Wish I did a search for Nvidia GPUs and could tell from the pictures they posted they were all fakes because they were all advertised as 1050's or 1060's and sure enough even the photos have the VGA plug on them... Linus you need to fire someone.
