PC Secret Shopper returns - with a twist. In this episode, Agent Sarah investigates the experience of building a computer herself with the help of PCPartPicker to determine whether it's better to buy a pre-built PC, or DIY.

  • i giggled so much thru this video XD

  • He was about to cry 🤣

  • she did good and very lucky

  • Someone pls stop her shaking it ,stop guessing its easy look it up

  • To be honest, I would have not done any better..

  • slcd.info/drink/video/qWqUy6uqvcqsx3g

  • It took me weeks of spending hours a day looking for graphics card just to find a 2070 super for 725

  • 20:04 camera guy dying noises

  • Almost $900 for GeForce GTX 1660 Ti

  • Agent *BRUTEFORCE* Sarah

  • Cheating is a deal breaker for me , I always told the previous 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 as being on the receiving end of adultery. I dind't know what was happening all along for years that he's been cheating until I met a hacker Cybermicheal1995@gmail.com he is a pro , he help hack my cheating husband messages without him knowing, I have access to the voice calls and messages including deleted messages And you can also Whatsapp him on+18722250930

  • I built a pc on pcspecialist then i bought all the parts i needed from amazon and other sites and built the pc myself. Works like a charm and i saves myself around £700

  • I could watch an entire series of cute girls building PCs for the first time. Very funny and entertaining. I really don't wish stress upon anyone, but Linus' reactions were priceless.

  • Linus Interrogation at CIA headquaters.. Agent: Tell us what you know or we will shake this motherboard so hard the ram will rip itself from the slots Linus: aaaaaaaaah nooooo ......wakes up from Nightmare😅

  • 24:50 should have said 97%

  • I disagree 100%. Building a PC is good if you know what your doing, bad if you don't.

    • In today's market, a prebuilt is cheaper. You can't even find graphics cards right now, and if you could, they cost alone more than what many entire prebuilts cost.

  • I think Sarah did any awesome job! 👍👍

  • 15:10 linus: "what you need is a lifeline" linus being a lifeline: "you know this isn't the hardest part right?". epic help bro 💯

  • i haven't ever built a pc cuz im broke but after watching so much linus tech tips it hurts watching this

  • She says my case is ugly _sad_ "Actually, that's not that bad" _happy_

  • Get your wife and make her slam Sarah with a slipper.

  • You could have heard a pin drop as Agent Sarah walked into the room. The PC components all pretended to be interested in something else as to not draw her attention, while candidly hoping they wouldn't be the target of her 'affection.' The GPU sighed secretly in relief as he noticed her raptor-like eyes scan the room and come to rest assuredly on the Pro-cessing Unit. A small wimper was heard coming from Ryzen, as Sarah's hand slowly reached out to him with pin-point (get it?) precision. But everyone knows that Agent Sarah is an inexhaustible mistress to have when so many offerings are on the block. Some claim that they can still hear Strix's last death knell to this day.

  • Linus Magic Tips

  • OMG her building this was so cringe LMAO

  • I didn't have linus techtips in my time.. maybe this is a reflection that people just got dumber.. lol

  • focus should be CPU MOBO RAM cause you can upgrade the other stuff later.

  • Great Job! Best outcome :D

  • I Love you GPU :(

  • I hate her because she is just so ...aahhh ..i mean careless to precious computer components.

  • LMAO linus you have definitely yolo'd before. she was right.

  • linus trying to do an episode like the verge with his employee? haha

  • She melted my eyes with her whiteness

  • What the hell. It hurts my soul to watch this

  • Am I the only one that would rather leave RGB lights unconnected? I just don't like them.

  • you know I'm getting old when I'm watching a video where you have a full grown beard

  • She is ADORABLE! hehe!. I have almost zero clue how to put my own comp together (im still researching b4 I commit) but seeing her JAM stuff IN & OUT was EEEEK!!!! I felt your pain Linus lol

  • torture.

  • Maybe next time she should buy a higher IQ

  • the pain train awaits

  • Linus in this video: So, that's what it feels like.

  • Most people are not willing to spend the time researching parts, researching what makes them good, and researching how to put them together carefully.

  • Did you guys, uh, did you guys intentionally hide all the manuals from her? The motherboard in particular would have come with all the instructions she was seeking...

  • the motherboard manual is your best resource if you dont know what you are doing

  • Do you wanna give me anxiety? Because this is how you give me anxiety! Seriously though. She's actually doing a pretty good job for a first time build tbh. Good job Sarah!

  • So just a million or so nerds now lining up to offer?

  • This video was the most fun in ages!

  • your mother

  • Women am I right

  • Linus does not understand you need to flip the motherboard to check if peace's stick to board xD haha.

  • 🤷‍♀️

  • Attempting to make a bunch of nerds on a forum do research and work for you for free seems like a great move if you're trying to keep costs and complications to a minimum?

  • "Next time I'll build a computer, I'll know what I'm doing" [X] Doubt

  • 19:08 "the fact that it was that easy to pull out maybe it does mean it wasn't in properly" hahahahah

  • She's building a computer for the first time in the best time... god I don't miss the metal cuts you could get from the old steel cases.

  • It is always funny to see Wohnung men, that are quite gentle with mamy things RIPPING on such stuff like a stoneage roughguy. 😂

  • Takes a lot for a video like this one to make me mad. Holy moly was I fuming 10 minutes in. The arrogant nerd comments were so destructive. I'm just glad these wern't made in the same room as her. This is exactly why people don't have time for know-it-all-nerds. They talk down to people.

  • While looking to upgrade my RAM, I had the idea to search up some of my other components to see what else I could improve and how much it would cost My GeForce RTX 2060 was $183 when I bought it in 2019 and now it's over $1000...WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?????

  • Stop saying lucky charm things, besides that very good video, also happy that the girl is dressed appropiate compared to majority.

  • It is so much fun 😂

  • Linus needs anxiety meds over this lol.

  • cringey! But hey! we were all noobs at one point

  • well if ur very tech savey already u CAN make ur own but ur first few rigs will be... "OK" hopefully

  • Lol. Just Pick an b450 Board, why why why a520, b550, waste of money.

  • It's been an 97% for 2 minutes and she gets panicked thinking she did something wrong. Sarah: have you ever used windows off a slow old HDD or waited for it to finish installing as it might be setting up complex critical system components?

  • When I saw the title I was thinking now ready made PCs were so super cheap it wouldn't be worth to build one myself... btw, building PCs since 1989.

  • F**K crypto

  • Perfect

  • Lol this is funnyasf

  • In which world is intel cheaper? Maybe it's because on my side of the world, AMD is cheaper. AND WHO USES WIFI FOR GAMING? USE A LAN CABLE FFS

  • This game me goosebumps

  • Got my 1660 super for $200 about 2 years ago.

  • cute

  • That was fun to watch

  • I'm only half way through and i already have nightmares

  • 13:59 Linus acting like the first time he saw pre-applied thermal paste ever he didn't wanna touch it, cmonBruh stop the cap

  • I remember when I built my first computer it was a cool calm winter's day. I had gone to buy some apples from Mrs. Twiglet the greengrocer and she was delighted to see me, and wouldn't you know it why the computer store was right next door I was overjoyed and oh so happy to have stumbled upon such a store. I bought a case a power supply a CPU and some other cool stuff to make it work. I can almost remember the joy and enlightenment I felt when at first I switched it on and it lit up. I was oh so happy happy happy happy oh so happy!!!!! you know what I mean?

  • Linus I’m 12 and I could build computers. I need a chance I need to get noticed make money and show people my talent.

  • I'm laughing so hard right now watching Linus scream Stop and face palming every time that graphics card wobbles or is pulled up and down!!! 🤣

  • linus should i sell my Geforce Gtx 1660 super and how much for

  • Just buy a laptop lol

  • Oof this feels like watching one of those cringe episodes of The Office.

  • Great video; it was somewhat refreshing. But, it makes me think back to why the framers of the U.S. Constitution opted NOT to have a direct vote for the presidency. HINT: They were afraid of the emotional and whimsical rabble. (That said, I'm sure glad that Linus was in the peanut gallery, i.e., à la Monday morning sports commentator.)

  • I've had plenty of bad ideas in my life..

  • "This video is proof that manufacturers could do a way better job of simping for users." Says the former computer repair guy & now a hotshot youtuber... Just watch, soon he'll be trying to burn down the hood he grew up in too - no that he doesn't live there anymore. Bet

  • Do i need a 570? Probably not. Will i get one? YES.

  • I think in special guess appearances they should be allowed to see the value($) of what they are working with.

  • Huge props to Sarah for this. Doing something you're not good/experienced at in front of a crowd of people (both in person and virtually) who are either very good or at least better than you takes huge stones. And to have such a fun attitude while doing it is really intoxicating to watch. More of Sarah, she's lovely!

  • God i love this girl :D

  • LMAO as a ProTech.

  • It's honestly reassuring to see how little love you can give to your hardware and have things work out alright

  • I want to build one. I'm not as knowledgeable. 8/

  • 20:37 Frustration.exe

  • Ngl I'm still a PC noob. I just ordered from Cyberpowerpc (though mainly did it due to the GPU shortage). Next time I'll build my own.

  • I think the most cringe part was watching her install the GPU while the case is standing up. I would never do that

  • I keep looking for the *sideways shaking hand* icon instead of the thumbs up or thumbs down for this video. The concept however is very solid. Lots of unexpected gender dynamics at play here... Not judging that one way or the other. Just notable.

  • Sara- Ok it's in! ... me- oh ...

  • bruh im a damn kid and i know how to build a pc

  • This makes me feel smarter
