    I feel like there's literally one Micro Center on this planet, that only the tech ITmoresrs have access to.

    I love watching your PC builds just because I can’t afford one. Gives me hope that one day I’ll be able to build a budget PC.

      @dabney offermein they do definitely run out. Took me a week of checking every morning for graphics cards restocks to get my 3090. Had to wait in line for line an hour or two that day. That was like 5-6 months ago though. Everything else is usually not too hard to get though.!

    For the RGB coordination you could've proably just used something like Artemis RGB or something, would've saved lots of RGB headaches

  • Argj1226

    You guys literally took the same route I did when I went there last week! Although less Nvidia cards but the Radeon ones were still there

    You know what you should've done with the 5700 Pro? Installed Linux on the system, and then virtualized Windows, passing through the 3090 and all of the P-Cores

    A comparison video to mac computers with the new M1 chip would be great for us to learn!

  • Loweflyer

    Just bought my M1 MacBook Air for 799 from this place. Decent deal. Also had an entire display of like 1000 2tb hard drives for 35 bucks each.


    Damn bro you really went all out love your videos am a big fan of yours😍😍😍

    • tag

      Seems right, between filing editing and microcenter looking it over, a week is actually pretty fast.

    Between you guys, Bitwit, and all the other techtubers going to the new Microcenter you guys are taking all the 3090's!!!!

  • GentleBen

    If I had a local micro center I would probably just build a new PC every 6months. Places like Best Buy and even Target are dropping the ball.

  • Skyb1rdy

    I really wished we had these store’s in Europe :(

    *IMO* Vega FE is still the best looking GPU ever made, with the Midnight 6800xt in second.

  • Pyomyositis

    Once the Intel GPU comes out, we can now build an all AMD and an all Intel PC. Assuming that the stock is available and not overpriced.

    That’s a trend I don’t like with mobo manufacturers, removing RGB options in the bios and forcing you to use the app. I’m not really a RGB person, but there are times when I want to enable it and not having bloat in windows is becoming rarer and rarer

    11:05 missed opportunity to say, "we used R G B to create the bluest gaming PC."

    Going to say that you have made the bluest colored PC but it's damn good and awesome but I am wondering that will it be worth it by making this type of pc

  • Genuinely Bad

    Bro now we need an all AMD build and have a competition😏

    Definitely need stores as complete as that Micro Center… and lots of cash to be able to buy a lot!

    Austin's Team: okay we need a new video idea. Austin's Team: what about making a blue PC? Austin: YES perfect let's do that.

    That store is a heaven for gamers, miners & professionals🔥

  • I_am_ENSanity

    Seeing as the Alienware pre-built I bought back in March for $1,977 (5800x, 6800xt, 1000w power supply, 16GB of DDR4 3200mhz [single stick], 256gb nvme, and 120mm liquid cooler) is now worth nearly $2,500 I can't imagine how much over MSRP this PC is.

  • FWJJ99

    I wish there were micro centre’s in the UK, that would be so cool.

  • Tj’s Tech

    • Noah Barb

      @Ranjan Biswas pretty sure intel still has an astronomical market share compared to AMD.

    • Ranjan Biswas
      Ranjan Biswas

      They made progress because AMD gave them enough pressure. That's all. It's all AMD's credit.

    For rgb u can use signal rgb to combine all (icue,mystic light, etc.) and all will sync together as one

  • Broklond

    As a european I'm so jealous of the microceters you have


    This isn't enough. I want to see the $500,000 build


    In my location, GPU is easily available. Easily available becoz of the expensive price. Not many can afford the latest GPU. Even the RTX 2060 6Gb cost around US$650.
