  1. Hey Linus, I know it's been a while since you made this video and I was hoping that you would want to make another similar to it to help me figure out my build. I need to build a PC for 4K 60 FPS video editing for a channel that I will be starting for my marketing job. I have a (slightly over) budget pc for gaming/streaming, but it still does not handle the editing to my liking and lugging around a Cougar Panzer Max to and from the office is no fun at all. I'm setting my budget between $1000 and $2000 depending on if I wait until the Ryzen 3000 series launches. Have a great day! Jeremy.

  2. Two RX580's, R5 3600, 16GB 3600mhz, 256GB SSD, 4TB HDD and $250 4k Monitor. Bam wait for sales. Then you have a solid 4k PC that'll perform like it has a 2080 in it. For a lot less.

  3. Watching as a former R9 285 user, this made me laugh a bit. 4K with this? I wouldn’t even bother, 2GB of VRAM is just a pain in 2020. But it depends on what you play (MOBAs, FPS, etc..) It can be done, but I wouldn’t bother with it, great GPU for a guest PC/second PC though.
