    Don’t get a gaming laptop! I had one for 5 years and it never worked properly. Constantly overheating was the main issue and the 2nd was running out of storage. Plus they are way over priced and you can get better and faster components in a desktop for much cheaper

  3. taylor uwu on March 3, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    I know literally nothing about gaming.. help me and what are all these terms??

  4. Tokziikk on March 3, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    So is there a place to have a set id for gaming like the psn or gamertag xbox and ps4 has?

  5. Bluez n 2z on March 3, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Step 1 – a hammer isn’t necessary
    Step 2 – Make sure your PC is under cover and not outside, especially in the rain. Or just buy a waterpoof PC.
    Step 3 – there is no step 3, or anything related to number 3 otherwise people will think it’s a sign that Half-Life 3 will finally come
    Step 4 – Build your own PC
    Step 5 – Read step 1 again

    And you are welcome!

    PC gaming Will always be the best

  15. Brendan Fogel on March 3, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    I have a great gaming pc and consoles. There is nothing better than pc. There are so many game more games and way more accessibility. The only reason why I still play console is because I don’t have my friends on pc. If I my friends had pc there would be no reason to even thing about my console

  16. Keatybug1985 on March 3, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Probably isn’t the right place to ask but anyone want to be steam friends and play games like gmod, tarkov, Minecraft, rainbow six siege, rust etc? I just built my pc last week and me and my friend are looking for people to play with

  17. MiaM on March 3, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    You know, I’m very reassured now. I ordered a gaming PC a couple of days ago and hopefully it will arrive at my house very soon, fingers crossed it will be arriving at my doorstep by Friday! I spent a tad over £1300, I’m glad that I upgraded my graphics card before the last second of buying it, or it would of been a disaster of a performance. I need all the luck I can get at the moment, this will be my first EVER gaming PC and I am having a lot of doubts that something will go wrong when unboxing it. Watching a lot of Linus Tech Tips has made me more aware and knowledgeable towards PC’s and I now understand the anatomy of the computer thanks to this short and helpful video!

    Is 8gb ram enough for red dead 2?

  28. Barath Rk on March 3, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    I think it would be better to play the older 2000’s games first rather than directly jump into modern games.
    But maybe that’s just me cause i can’t play current gen games on my pc lol.

  29. IMaKICKER on March 3, 2021 at 11:23 pm

  31. Julio Hinojosa on March 3, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    I have a gaming PC and a PS4 but I kinda neglect the PC cause I hate having to troubleshoot or when games crash and that happens all the time on PC, plus I don’t like using mouse and keyboard because of resting my wrist hurts afterwards

  32. General Gamehead on March 3, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Xbox one wireless controller works great and the quality of games is breathtaking.

    The best way to get into gaming is PC gaming, and the best way to get into PC gaming is through building a desktop.
