    So deeply disappointed you didn't bust out a CRT monitor and some yellowed keyboard/mouse action to complete the look.

    I just built my first pc, and i decided to pull it all out the fancy new case and put it all in a case my dad had from a custom pc he built in 99. Looks way more subtle and understated. I love it. Plus everyone who see's it is shocked when I boot up run games at 140 fps at 1440. Not the best i know but better than the case lets on.

  82. Eric S

    Eric S9 days ago

    I feel like my dad's got the incognito gaming PC here. I give him my stuff when I upgrade. He still has his old beige case from like 2002, and it's gone from a P4 chip to a dual core AMD, to a quad core AMD, to an eight core AMD 8320, and the GPU has gone from something without a heatsink (lol), to an 8800GT, to a 250GTS, to a 560GT, to a 960GT. All the man does is play Bejeweled and Sins of a Solar Empire, and C&C Generals. He's pretty happy. Every time I retire a component from my nonsense, it goes into his case to enjoy its old age. When it dies, I have a replacement by that time. It's a good system.

Also just throwing those cards and mobo on the floor is poor form, you might be rich but people try hard to source those as they are rare and expensive. First ever dislike to a Linus video!
