    Dear Mr Linus. This video is amazing. I wish i could build something that powerful :'(. But that is pretty impossible for me. Do you give the pcs you build away? If so i would not mind having this one :) just a thought. I'm sure you have people you give them too. But great videos. Always very informative. Keep up the awesome work bud.

    You did not make the Top 1 % cause the RTX 2080 OC version GPU's told you they were not going to cooperate. Personally, the fault was Bad GPU Drivers or unknown restriction of the mobo Bios. MSI and ASUS need to update their blah blah blah. What apps or services did you have running in the background ? Were you using a fresh OS copy of Windows 10 Pro ? Who did the Over Clocking procedure ? Things work better with proper cooling as I suspect the RTX 2080's hit 80 degrees and gave us coil whines. Did you have Hyper-threading On or Off ? Darn anti-virus, malware, spyware and spam ware was at work. Turn off Windows Defender. Last, did you receive your Handicap to add to your score ? LINUS, you're just too honest while everyone else cheated to get their World Record setting Benchmark Scores. If you don't want your new rig, I can surely use it to replace my well outdated and nearly obsolete desktop that has Core 2 E8500, LGA-775 Gigabyte mobo, 4GB ddr3 ram, with HD-3870 gpu. - You make all your efforts noteworthy. It's entertaining to watch your Tech videos.

    That was a Fast Give Away. Today is January 15, 2019 and it has ended. As if I had any luck "if it wasn't for bad luck I would have no luck at all". I really do not understand how people can afford top end / elite performance computers or "keep up with the Jones-es". My 1st computer was the Commodore 64 in 1982, followed by Apple IIe in 1983, I almost purchased the IBM PC Jr. instead. Finally in 2002 was the Compaq Presario 5423US with Windows ME [Millennium]. In May 2008 I opted out for a DIY build and it was fun but somewhat expensive for a guy who makes under $20k annually and supporting a family of 4. So now it has been almost 11 years using an old Core 2 E8500 LGA-775 desktop and on You Tube I watched several Tech videos only to be envious or wished I could afford to have a current up to date PC. I suppose thousands of other people are in the same low income situation and can't afford this expensive stuff. From 2002 to 2005 I played Diablo & Diablo II having to use DSL of 768Kbps which was tough but was a step up from 56K baud modems "dial up". Today the only gaming I play is Internet Spades. Oh! I do have faster DSL by Spectrum "formerly Time Warner Road Runner" at about 3Mbps for $14.99 a month. I can only guess that the Give Away was not a drawing but a competition in order to have a chance at winning. I wished I could pass on or exchange my luck to someone else cause if it wasn't for bad luck, I would have no luck at all. - CONGRATULATIONS to all the Winners! also LINUS does an excellent job with his Info Tech videos. ENJOY and have fun .

    Even tho i have had my tec certificate 15+ yrs i used to learn alot through this channel. The last 20 episodes i seen just fealt like rubbin in what most ppl cant have.We all know a top end PC has more power over a top end consol. Here in Ontario the specs of a Ps4 Pro or Xb1 X will blow away any budget build pc. I have afew computers in my home and the one i just built that had the specs of Pro not even the X cost me about $1400. The $325 (after tax) Gtx 1050 ti is not even close to the power of the Pros gpu i had to buy the 1060 6gb that was $550 ($625 after taxes) thats already over the $499 cost of the Pro lol the X is $599.Lived in this area 37 years now and besides afew ppl that spent $500 on there Pc which is no where even close to the specs of even just a standard ps4,im the only person i know with a gaming PC.Every single person i know out of the 100+ ppl i know around here own a PlayStation or xbox.Top end PCs might have more power than a consol , but i can tell u this more ppl game on a consol and thats a fact.I dont even know anyone around here that even owns a Pro or X besides myself,i have lots of friends that own a ps4 now but even last yr most my friends were still on Ps3/360.If a $500 is hard enough to purchase im thinking to game in 3840X2160 4k @ at least 40-50 fps which is very smooth ppl are full of shiitt sayin they need 100 fps lmfao no they dont, but a PC that can handle at least 50 fps on high ultras settings is gonna cost $1500 good luck payin for that when payin $1000 each month for a home,then the $150-$200 hydro, then internet,phone,groceries and then imagine supporting a child lol.My last Pc build took me 3 yrs to get it the way i wanted which by then my $275 gtx 750 ti was outdated,thats when i bought 2X gtx 1050 ti OC that cost me $650 for them both, $325 each.And now my $455 in ram is outdated cause its ddr3 lol after i bought my last 8gb stick,seriously ddr4 released a month later.The tax and prices in Canada make it extremely hard to buy a Pc with just specs of a 4k consol :-(
