      when it comes to Linus, its more like a Break vs Pro


    You should do a broke VS pro where you get a professional competitive player and give them the crappiest dual core PC that can run CSGO at 30FPS max, and some person who never or very rarely played shooters and give them a setup with one of those 360 Hz monitors and an RTX 3090.

    • KYSMO

      @After The Electrike I'll do ya one better - a single core lower clocked thermally throttling one!

      When things were at their very worst: 2 Suns, Cross in the sky, 2 comets will collide = don`t be afraid - repent, accept Lord`s Hand of Mercy. Scientists will say it was a global illusion. Beware - Jesus will never walk in flesh again. After WW3 - rise of the “ man of peace“ from the East = Antichrist - the most powerful, popular, charismatic and influential leader of all time. Many miracles will be attributed to him. He will imitate Jesus in every conceivable way. Don`t trust „pope“ Francis = the False Prophet - will seem to rise from the dead - will unite all Christian Churches and all Religions as one. One World Religion = the seat of the Antichrist. Benedict XVI is the last true pope - will be accused of a crime of which he is totally innocent. "Many events, including ecological upheavals, wars, the schism in My Church on Earth, the dictatorships in each of your nations - bound as one, at its very core - will all take place at the same time." "Arab uprising will spark global unrest - Italy will trigger fall out" The Book of Truth

      the ken collection is a collection of very exclusive parts and the stuff that looks like build errors are in reality just to give the system more personality

      @AbnormallyNormal // they got expendable income and a sponsorship *from* a computer parts centre so they should bring back the budget for the “broke” gamer. Around $500 would still be able to get a decent machine. (I’m talking USD coz here that’s like $900AUD lol my economy is screwed)

    • AbnormallyNormal //
      AbnormallyNormal //

      Exactly. The tech ITmoresrs have seem to have forgotten what a budget laptop is

  • : Rekogen :

    On next Broke vs Pro, spin a wheel with different budgets for each component.

      Imagine a 3090 on an a320 board with an AMD athlon lol

    Soon as I saw Austin walk towards the laptops I knew he’d go for an Asus, you just can’t beat ‘em lately, price to performance wise. Not to mention laptops are actually available.

  • RahRaj

    On the gaming section, both Austin and Ken should play the game on each other’s system to see if it’s the pc’s fault or the person behind the machine

  • Djmatrix2310

    I have 2 of those MSI cases and they were pretty dope for a budget case. I had no issues installing anything 100% recommend!

      @Bahrniemost amd cpus use a pin grid array, where it has little pins on the bottom of the cpu that plugs into the motherboard socket, whereas most intel cpus use lga, where instead of pins on the cpu, they're on the motherboard, so the bottom of the intel cpu is clean shaven, aside from a few surface mount components

  • CaptainN209

    Austin, I still would like to see a broke vs pro with the switch Oled vs Steam deck when it comes out.

  • SilverStormShadow

    I still can't believe that Austin was going to win the previous Broke vs Pro, I'd of given Ken the win just for the epic pyramid case

    • SilverStormShadow

      @ISI-97 Yeah, that's why I can't believe that Matt initially said Austin won before his gloating

    • ISI-97

      Pyramid case build was Ken's one

    I laughed too much about Austin's "gaming setup" but when matt did move the table, its basically a "Austin's Tomb". And i wonder how ken was rushing about his pc build, but i thought: "Ken does have a vacuum on his pc?" man, great video about BVP. Keep it up! P.D: Ken does have all mostly luck?

    when I was in highschool I convinced my parents that I can select a laptop to buy myself and bought one with discrete graphic card in it and the one that still looks like a regular laptop(thin shape and no rgb or fancy extra on the looks), well the only popular gaming laptop was only alienware back then...
