I've been watching gamers and streamers for 6.5 years on my 6.5 yeas old phone and dreaming the PC I want every single day and at the exact moment that i got my money ready all the world is on shortage and a price of a RTX 3070 is even more than I have fuck this world

triffid0hunter says:

Hi, your subtitles are totally messed in the last third of the video – script changed and no-one updated the subs?

Jayme Thysell says:

So what should we do in the meantime while we are waiting a year and a half for prices to come down to MSRP?
The prices started skyrocketing right when I was ready to buy a new computer, and my 7yo laptop is barely meeting my needs. The computer I wanted 8 months ago is currently twice the price it would have been had I bought it back then, and I was reluctant (and unable) to buy it at that older price.I really need to upgrade, and I just don't know what to do.

Alex Fontainne says:

no crypto crash lol, let them keep their rx570's

addmorebacon says:

"it's the better example of how I was…kind of right"

Cameraman laughs

Raymond Finzel says:

beard looks good on you

KamiEuKiTo says:

Humble brag 🤏😎

Nicholas Lewis says:

I blame the stimulus money. People using their checks to ball out on PC parts.

Kurtis Akalski says:

id rather miners get the gpu's. that way btc network grows more decentralized, along with helping speed the halving along to raise demand for it even higher, get ready for 80-100k btc along with alt coin surge. crypto..

Teknisk og elektronisk says:

Oh dear. I only heard F U MINORS

89qwyg9yqa34t says:

All of those unnecessary stimulus payments at work!

ps3man281 says:

I watch another youtuber who had way to much negative energy about the 30 series graphics. Needless to say he got a dislike, you however give me hope, Liked and comment 🙂

The Great Buddha says:

I just want everyone to go back to work -.-

Sam Kirby says:

Linus Economic Tips. Needs to happen.

JackOfAllRAIDs says:

What about the price-gouging scalpers?

TheGlassSword says:

Hey guys I just want to shout out to local and private hobby stores as offline entertainment from model building, board games, trading cards

So instead of graphics cards go enjoy a different Card for gaming! And support hobby and game shops

Krymera666 Ash says:

Finally secured a series X, just before they were all gone, again.

J L says:

>Not mentioning scalpers. Ok, Linus.

mikin lirou says:

Didn't realize that you are in Canada which is odd because I've been aware of your brand for over a decade. Proud supporter of fellow Canucks.

lol says:

Don't worry Linus, no bubble lasts forever and crypto will crush, like it did in 2017. And people will be selling a lot of equipment at discounted prices… Many of them still think what "This time it's different"… we will see.

Mohammed says:

So why even 8 year old gpus still cost double of retail price… rx 480, r9 270x. Some big players are buying up all of the supplies and causing a spike in the demand. The money is fueled by cryptocurrency the miners made money and got greedy.

Jak e says:

God damnit why is it that the same month I find out i don't even have a GPU for my GAMING COMPUTER is the same as when prices skyrocket

MooTaters says:

ummm, no thanks to the crypto crash sell off….I'll let others buy those burnt out used up cards. While they may be built to handle a lot, they're not built for server/datacenter type constant full load that many miners leave them under.

TerryBeary says:

I lost the game
