      8:00 may be length of cord is too small, and they prolongated it with adapter...

        4:55 I remanaged some cables some time ago, and noticed bunch of coat plastic on monitor and crap, i didn't noticed before. You often start notice it when it start came off because of time and temperature.
        I'm horrible man and idiot.

                            Hi LTT crew, I was wondering, with all of the new information we have today concerning the Ryzen Gen 3, would you say it might be possible to do that whole overclocking thing that you've talked about on that last MG machine? I think you could really tweak it almost as-is and just playing around with the ram. Showing people that such a computer might have more kicks than we might originally think.
                            And spending an extra 100$ for that ram would be worth it.

                                      Wow the mark up on that Origin PC was insane. I wouldn't have paid a dollar over like $999 for that.

                                        I know this was almost 2 years ago but when I was younger an Alienware is all I could ever want, looking at this just the inside looks so dull and tacky and to think you paid 1500 for it. I just can't believe it man.

                                            Im not sure about others as i didn't have experience with them but i can say for sure that Alienware is ripping you of, you are basically getting a fancy case and their software but the parts inside are more often then not sub par from what you could get if you bought the parts yourself that are better and for a cheaper price. Not to mention that Alienware's software tends to conflict with some games, for instance i could not start Black Desert on it at all while on a equivalent system that i put together myself i can run it just fine
