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.

    recently did a PC for my sister (earlier in April) and while windows has been a shithead the ENTIRE time running I can say honestly it was a lot of fun and she got a decent final product. I've been hoarding GPU's for a little while now (selling a 1080ti currently to fund a 3080/3090 so I can sell my OTHER 1080ti) and between her friends' PC getting my old 1060 and her on an 710 (didn't need much more frankly) I think in total I've made two new PC users for life :)

    Testing if its in by turning everything upside down and shaking it in a way so in case anything wasn't secured the component would simply fall down on the table to know that you have to investigate further with potentially broken pieces. What should go wrong?

    Honestly, despite all the cringy misshandling of components, can't help but somewhat impressed with Sarah's working out and instincts for someone who's pretty much never built a computer. I'm sure she'd have done pretty much perfect if she wasn't doing it on video and could spend time watching videos and reading manuals (minus the strong instinct to shake things loose :D )

    Hey, at least she didn't brick a Asus TUF x570-PLUS WIFI mainboard with a bios update, like I did.
    One thing I saw on youtube was that the MSI MPG X570 Gaming Carbon Wifi was a disaster of a mainboard and my current MSI MEG X570 Tomahawk Wifi was kind of an excuse to their customers, because the Tomahawk comes with an excellent VRM, and some other nice parts I can't remember right now.

    We just received our MSI x570 Tomahawk motherboard today and it has a sticker on it saying it is 5000 series ready. Has anyone else received one or used it, I was planning to re flash the bios but I don't think I need to do it now. Pc part picker still shows we need to flash bios. Not sure why people are not talking about this because so many videos about the incompatible bios not booting

    After spending 40 years building personal computers many computer manufacturers are still clueless. For example, HP updates motherboards bios to restrict which M.2 WIFI can be used. This means you must have a dongle plugged into the USB 3.2 port your computer does not have to support WIFI 6. Wait, no problem your Internet Provider does not support a cable modem that supports WIFI 6. You will just have to use 802.11ac until your next computer supports 802.11ax. Fry's Electronics is out of business. Circuit City is out of business. Radio Shack is out of business. MicroCenter is just an hour away by jet. You can order just about anything on alibaba but the item you need has a minimum order quantity of 10,000 units.

    Just a thing to note about building your own pc. A) If you break something it's on you. You need to buy a new one. and B) You might not have someone giving you lifelines.
    Having said that building your own pc can be fun - maybe just try find someone that can help you if you have no idea what you're doing.
