Dear Linus Can you show us how to build a pc below a 500$ for the average user and gamer with no more than 720p or 1080p max and the included pieces to be available in the middle east area - especially EGYPT would be so much appreciated as a matter of fact your videos are so cool but most of the shown products fall too far out of the reach of the low / middle income citizens of the area

that face when you wanted to update your cpu and got this very cpu and b450m asus rog mobo and it feels a lot better than your old i7 4790k set up, also having ddr4 might be the reason this current set up runs so smooth.

I literally waited all the way for black Friday to buy one, and it starts rising in price smh
Can't play anything on my 3600 without temps of 90+ no idea how to fix it
Doğancan Saçıkara
Doğancan Saçıkara Pred 12 urami
Check first your cpu cooler: is it placed correctly. Then according to your motherboard: Go bios settings, disable the core boost. It will be fixed! If it isn't fixed, probably it is about your psu or cooler ( could be havent got thermal paste).

Only one thing missing from this awesome vid, the success of ryzen cpus has forced intel to lower prices - another win! Lets be honest, Intel have always had a premium pricing structure and only ever keep things reasonable when forced.

I'm watching this on a pc I bought in 2014 with an AMD FX6300 CPU, It does everything I need It to. There's nothing wrong with It as It's awesome. However when I built my very own PC in the same year I decided to use an INTEL i7 4770K CPU, and after 6 years it's still fast as fuck, they are both used all day every day.

Intel is always better. You can't play cod warzone on Ryzen processor for long time. The pc may burst because of too much heating.

I've always had Intel processors until I bought my first real gaming computer about 2 years ago. At the time I was building it, AMD was a little cheaper than Intel. I put a ryzen 7 1700x in it, and even today it still performs like a top.

if people weren't ignorant children with low budget influenced by paid youtubers, AMD and Intel would be considered options for a PC, available appliances and brands offering very good features and performance. But the result of clowns of internet like Linus or others... is the fanatics fools fanboys.

NomadaFirefox Pred 4 dnevi
It is the funny point from marketing where probably most of the people if they had been asked 4 years ago about AMD would sold expensive products, they had told you impossible. But now and after Zen 2, everybody want a AMD CPU and it has increased the marketing expectations from AMD increasing at the time the price from all its products. Have fun because they do not go to sell most of them and at one moment from the not too far future, they will need down the price a lot or they will have problem from too many stock from everything.

Because have no clue, its a proven fact gaming does fine on 4c/8t or 8 core 8t cpu like 9700k, all you need is a faster gpu lol. Gamers buying 3800x, 3950 etc are a waste of resources.

@Steven Fillmore damn thanks bro for the info, but it sucks having to pay for these overpriced cpus right now lol. i remember back in august i could of got the r5 3600 below 200$ but i didn’t think that much of it now i’m stuck getting it at 20% more of the price feels bad man

@weeb mark I paid 140$ for a B550M Motherboard, 150$ for (2x16GB) 32GB DDR4 3200mhz, 330$ for R5 3600X. after tax those cost me $640, I also ordered a 120mm liquid cooler (deep cool) on amazon for 55$, 3 fans 22$, and a chinese N17 case for 70$. picked up a crucial 500GB m.2 drive for $80 and had a 240 SSD kicking around plus a 1TB HDD. its not super cheap but im attempting to future proof and know that with the B550 Mobo I can go to a more hard core CPU later from the used market a few years down the road. I also picked up a used 4GB Rx570 GPU last year for 100$. its probably been abused in a BTC mining rig but its been working totally fine for my dual boot Windows/ AMD hackintosh build.

At this moment the German Title says: "Warum kaufen ALLE CPU?" wich means "Why is EVERYONE buying CPU?" or "Why buying ALL CPU?". A correct Translation would be: "Warum kauft jeder DIESE CPU". The german subtitles are also way worse than the automatic translation.

Interestingly my 8y old pc crashed about a month ago and I've been out of many works and specially playing Minecraft.. I was thinking about an upgrade so I was wandering around the internet and noticed Ryzen 5 3600 is such an good option for me now. But recently AMD just released ton of new generational products with new and more efficient architecture, So is there will be a new successor of 3600 from AMD at the same price point or should I just go for the 3600..
