    Static Elec

    Work on a surface that isn't fluffy (so no carpet or mats or something like that) Touch anything that's grounded before building (a fridge is usually a good option) Try to avoid fluffy clothes (wool socks for example isn't ideal). You can go full nekkid mode if you are paranoid but it's not needed to go that far. Also you shouldn't be too worried, these days stuff is quite shock-proof.

    What Should I Do Next?

    I would try to get a 2nd hand 1080ti.

    How do you Archive your data?

    The 3-2-1 rule is probably what you want. You want 3 copies of everything, 2 local and 1 off-site. Off-site can be cloud but also a small NAS or whatever at a friend or family of you.

    This video is like, on a different level than other LTT video's. Like another level of stupid, somehow. It needs more sound effects tho. And they should really need to add something like this next time: http://driftmission.com/burn-effect-v3-rc-drift-smoke-generator/ I mean who doesn't want a vaping RGB system, right?
  5. I think you are a bit confused... The 4 cases OP suggested are all cheap ones that feel meh. I'm not saying Fractal is crap, their stuff is great. Out of the 4 cases OP said, i would either get the deepcool or the sharkoon one.
  6. Fractal design is quite decent if you just want a decent case with no RGB BS or gimmics. Quality wise, all of them are meh quality and are going to feel cheap. That said, i would either get the deepcool or the sharkoon.

    What cpu should i pair with

    Not really, It's a 4C/8T cpu and i would get at least a 6-core, especially with how cheap they are these days. An R5 1600 should also be a decent option if you are on a really tight budget.

    Top money spent by TTL, no good gaming PC

    Well the reason why this is accurate is because that's what Linus always wanted to be. Back when he had less than 1M subs and his stuff was actually informative, he always told us that his goal was to become basically Top Gear of the tech world, just messing around with tech because that's what he loves to do and that's exactly what he does these days. It's awesome actually to see that LTT is exactly what Linus hoped it would be.

    Looking for a super cheap way out. Again.

    Buy a cheap aliexpress testbench and a cheap RGB strip, job done! Not really a case tho but hey cardboard can get you there.

    Top money spent by TTL, no good gaming PC

    Well, if you want actually solid recommendations, you will have to look somewhere else. LTT is like the Top Gear equivalent of the tech world, great stuff, very entertaining, but if you want to buy an actual car/computer, you look somewhere else. These days most builds aren't that special and can easily be sorted out on the forum here. New topic, bit of discussion and in a few hours you have a build that fits your needs. Also stuff doesn't really change. Yes there are new cpu's and gpu's released but it's such a small amount most people here adjust to new products in like days and recommendations can be a bit derpy around those launches but most of the time, we usually agree with what someone should get.

    A Console Gamers PC

    Just a little note, you don't need a motherboard with wi-fi, you can easily get a pci-e wi-fi card that are like solid AF, but then again it's up to you to decide what you want, but just know it's an option.

    Ugh GTA V Online Sucks!

    You aren't doing anything wrong, that's just what gta V online is these days. There is a reason why people hate it so much, including me. But the thing is, as long as people buy it and buy sharkcards they won't change anything. Some people have friends and play in closed sessions which is imo the only way to actually enjoy gta V online. Thing is, you need friends, which i for example don't have so i don't play it at all. The single player is nice tho, but that's about it.
  13. And a blanket 1 size bigger than the bed you have is also a REALLY nice upgrade, especially if something like a king size bed is too expensive for you.
  14. Older tests with other hardware showed like a 1-2% difference? Barely more than margin of error. Nothing that you are going to notice. No need to worry.

    The AMAZING $30 "Computer Case"!

    You really notice @GabenJr is becoming a real part of LMG, stupid mistakes, dropping stuff, exactly the stuff we are expecting! It's actually nice to see that Anthony is the source for a bunch of actually really good videos recently. Keep it up! They should really let you go ham on aliexpress once with no budget just to see what kind of crazy stuff you would buy.
