      Which amd cpu would you recommend to be paired with either a 3090 or 3080 ??? Help !!! @ linustechtips

      1. Kanishk Parmar

        Ryzen 3700x to 3950x and the whole Ryzen 5000 lineup.

    2. The Gamer

      Linux looks better In Beard...

    3. reddogloc

      Just an idea LINUS, why not auction off the computers you build for charity?! Maybe even the charity of your sponsors choice. Hows that not a win win for everyone.

    4. who who6970

      Nah its not 800 dollars i dont belive u 2060 and 3600 in a 800 dollar budget and a expensive motherboard and pc case brooooooo wtf

    5. Valiant Cashew nuts

      Linus looks younger without a beard

    6. Bike Doc

      Ok big difference in your facial hair and woman breast. If breast was building the PC I would not be able to pay attention to build parts 🤣

    7. Ha Ha

      Wait what?! When did Martin Skrelli started doing pc builds? Oh no.

    8. Florian Petrariu

      Hey, long time watcher first time commented. I love your channel and I have just subscribed to all the channels you enumerated. Keep up the good work, geeks around the world cheer for you. BTW, this is a great build for my 13y old son, he is a gamer and also just started to nibble with Blender(the software), and Adobe Premier and this works great. Thank you, --Florian

    9. PryvatCyan87

      Linus please do a video about tech for bikes

    10. Deep Kaur

      He has a beard

      1. Marshall Pieri


    11. Daniel t

      im in australia and the exact card from amazon cost 981 dollars... more than the whole budget in us

    12. Spid3rBit8

      Good for streaming?

    13. Mr. Willy

      10 months later and the GPU is now $999 on Amazon. Yup...

    14. Pixy

      My rx 590 is more than this whole pc now...

    15. Paul Melkus

      Can't build this system for 800 these days because the cost of the video cards has got so high.

    16. Charlie Szczesny

      I Like TRAINS!


      it’s honestly insane to think that an 800$ system before march was a ryzen 5 3600x and a 2060... what a different, the graphics card now has the same cost as the entire system

    18. Guy Ferrante

      Love that pink laptop

    19. Cyndicial

      Kurwa mać 799 dollar gaming pc 800 dollar gaming pc better

    20. Brick Army Productions

      This is pretty close to my build, except for I have a ryzen 3. Is that bad?

    21. Sean Kennedy

      This same build now costs $1800+

    22. Luke Hoppa

      2021 no

    23. Mike E

      You don’t have a beard!! That is pre-pubescent computer geek stubble.

    24. TheRealSpoony

      Does Linus have a identical "STUNT DOUBLE"?...Because this guy has no idea what he is doing!!! ...haha

    34. Cameron

      Owen Wilson is from Texas, there’s tons of people who sound like him here.

    35. Stefan Albrecht

      12:56 roses are red, violets are blue... i must eat yoghurt off of you

    36. CloudProductions

      IF you can find a GPU right now, they're selling for 2x, 3x, 4x, and some places 5x msrp. it's ridiculous. I've been sitting with a built computer, with no GPU, for 2 months now.

    37. TeaSToRM

      i brought that Motherboard a couple years ago with that CPU lol but i have an RX580 AMD card :D

    38. ShockAtt277


    39. Jonathan Delos Santos

      is this motherboard compatible with this cpu? I think the bios on this motherboard need to be updated.

    40. Hollow Dog

      Amazon price EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 Used - Very Good $799.00

    41. JP Dickey

      Now $2000

    42. Vito

      Love the youtube vids. Can you make a power house pc For 2021..

    43. Braden Mayew

      That is not a beard.

    44. IIBliskII


    45. Joe Cortese

      Linus should take down this video. You cant even get the RT 2060 for $800!

    46. Joseph Kasler


    47. Dustin

      So uh I hear you don't have the technology to take a part a computer to reuse it. I could use a new PC, my PC is on its last leg literally. I think I might be able to put one of those built computers you cant do anything with to good use. My current PC is 8 years old. Typing that honestly just made me sad. I play OW on it nearly every weekend though. But it has been shutting down mid game and my comp rating has gone from diamond to gold due to it >.

    48. Zeek M

      Budget rigs are not gaming rigs Linus That's just the cold hard truth.

    49. HZGaming4U

      I watched a video of a $300 Budget PC that really came up to $478... I watched a $400 Budget PC Build that really came up to $617 Total after adding everything... I watched a $500 Budget PC that really comes out to $763... I am sure this $800 Budget PC really would come out to around $1,050 to $1,100 really... :(

    50. Gamebag

      That exact 2060 is over $1000? I dont understand

    51. Surefiregs

      You lost me at the amd box

    52. thomas malone

      the rtx 2600 is between 800 and 1500 bucks on newegg right now lol

    53. Marek Čelko

      2021 comment, wow Linus hitting his puberty phase, predates his Hobo phase.......

    54. Han Lu

      The labored icicle anaerobically trouble because seeder intermittently name of a common musician. disillusioned, overwrought hole

    55. stephen williams

      you forgot the thermal paste bro

    56. Rampage

      ok so im guesing the ryzen 3600 was not in stock or the 3600x was same/lower price than the non X 3600. becaus there aint no reason to get the 3600x over the 3600.

    57. Colin McKenna

      Now you can get a 2060 and almost a CPU for 800!

    58. Luke Franko

      That graphics card alone costs $1,644 on NewEgg right now for one that's actually in stock... Freakin' COVID man.

      1. Gamebag

        Bruh, so true I have 800 to spend on my b day and I saw this video and thought "perfect!" I click on all the link and this PC come to nearly 2000

    72. billie ellish

      made it clear men I've had relationships with, the moment you are unfaithful is the moment you end our relationship. If I've ever felt so disconnected from my partner that I have felt myself drawn even into a hypothetical affair in my mind, I end the relationship. I've been in many abusive relationships (that I ultimately ended) but never once have I been unfaithful. Why? Because no failing relationship is worth sacrificing my morals and integrity for. No matter how it unfolds with a partner, there should be a base level of respect and empathy towards them as a human being. A failed relationship will not pollute your mind and foster insecurities anywhere near as much as being on the receiving end of adultery. I didn't know what was happening all along for years that she's been cheating until I met RELIANCEDECK.COM
