How we built a $2000 custom gaming PC



So, how do we build a custom gaming PC? Well, it’s not impossible to build your own Windows desktop. In fact, it’s a great way to learn about what makes most computers tick. Building your own desktop is a great way to ensure you’ll have a computer that perfectly suits your current (and future) needs. Here, Stefan Etienne shows us how to build your own gaming desktop.

    Hi all, thanks for the comments and feedback! We're thrilled to have so many passionate people discussing this. Our goal with this video is to complement our How To article and to show that building a desktop isn't an impossible task. It was not shot in real-time, and after the shoot, we did swap the RAM channels and cleaned up some of the thermal paste as many of you have noted. Sometimes a lot more paste comes out of the tube than intended, so it's certainly something to be careful about. We also did more wire management in the second chamber of the case that didn't make it into the final cut of the video. If you're interested in building this yourself, please check out the written article for a more detailed, step-by-step guide.

    Building a PC is a great learning experience and it lets you customize a machine to your specific needs. It's also a constant work-in-progress — we plan to upgrade the GPU in this machine in the very near future (you can probably guess what's going in next ;)). – Stefan

    It's been like 15 years since I last built a PC and this looked wrong to me. But what do I know.

    Wow, just wow. Is this real life or a simulation. Too many stuff wrong with the video and building process. It deserves a CinemaSins counter.

    I really like The Verge in several ways but in this case, i think the content in it is misleading in several ways. From specifications and instructions that can damage the parts involved in this build. It should be deleted and shot again in a manner that can be a lot more precise.

    This guy should never build a PC again – that video was a pain to watch.

    I'm not super familiar with this Corsair case but it looks like the PSU is in taking from the mother board basically unless there's more space I don't know about.

    Dude, you forgot to test all of you parts outside of the case before you assemble it for real…

    I LOVE to see MATX motherboards and cases in the wild! mATX has more than enough features for most people, but there is such a dearth of good cases, way to incentiveize case makers to put more options out there.

    Seems like you guys need to do more research on how to build properly…

    I would never trust the verge on how to build a pc in the first place. I would trust linus, bitwit, Jayz2cent, & paul's hardware better than this sorry guy.
