SCRAPYARD WARS!

They've done what, 7 seasons now? 

If Game of Thrones is anything to go by, we wouldn't even want season 8 after episode 3.

I had a good idea for it. It would basically be to build the most compact PC. With a budget of $750US or CA. So, using the normal style of price per dollar and then comparing that to the actual size of the machine, we can calculate a score that gives more advantage to smaller PCs. But as a twist, they have to buy one or more parts from another source that is not Craigslist, and they get two full days, totaling to 48 hours.

Low profile 1050ti or 1650.
R5 3600
MITX B450

They don't even need to buy used parts if the budget is $750 USD.

I would like to see them compete against young new YouTubers who focus on used bargain hunting. Like kristofer yee and toasty bros. Or maybe go to Australia and compete against Brian from TechYesCity

yeah, I was thinking maybe they could do something where they have no time limits, and they can use the time as they wish.  It would be cool if they measured the size of each computer and that was part of the scoring system.
