    PC Secret Shopper returns - with a twist. In this episode, Agent Sarah investigates the experience of building a computer herself with the help of PCPartPicker to determine whether it's better to buy a pre-built PC, or DIY.

I know many people found this stressful, but I was laughing the entire time. When she busted out duct tape to mount the SSD I lost it. Besides the unfortunate handling of the GPU while installed in the motherboard I was thoroughly impressed. This just goes to show that anyone with a bit of google know how and willingness to learn can build a pc.

I have to agree with Sarah. I built my first PC at 34 last year. It's a budget mediocre box (R5 3600 with a 1660 Super in a cheap £30 mITX case...I'd LOVE to upgrade the GPU but...well...). But It is SO rewarding! I love my little media box and I'd love to build something in the future for sure. Your videos have been super helpful (as well as watching retro computing videos...the knowledge works it's way in regardless of the age of the hardware). My cheap little box has personality...and sits there noisily whirring away (because cheap case!) hidden in the corner next to my much more elaborate home cinema set up. Only annoying thing is that I have a 4K TV and can't play modern games to use it to it's potential...but soon I hope! Stupid 'rona

It would be nice to see a followup with Sarah just guiding her through what she did wrong, did right, what better alternatives she could have chosen (and why), etc. That would help the "intended audience" for this even more. As someone with 25 years of PC building experience this was on the level of rubbernecking a good car accident though!

This video was just spot on.. i finished my own build (first time builder)last weekend.. after hours of “researching” parts here on YouTube , I managed to put together a complete build, that , after 5 hours of anxious cold sweating and ‘try and error’ actually posted, booted up on my nvme m.2 ssd and installed Windows without anything blowing up or smelling weirdly.. that was such an amazing feeling, that It actually just worked out fine.. definately worth the sweaty hands. *intel 10400f, *Asrock B560m Steel Legend, *Be quiet Pure Rock 2, 3200 MHz ram and a rtx 3060ti..

Well when you have no idea how to do something, instead of keeping saying "I think blablabla", you can just learn some basics and read the manual which most of the components have in their package. And take respect to it. I mean, she act just like the stereotype of a girl who knows nothing about pc, but we all know it's just a stereotype, normal people won't act that way even if they're doing something they aren't familiar with. Yeah she is a Youtuber, it is justified that she "act" like that to gain views.

I may have done better on my first build but it also took me around 6 hours because I watched a separate video for every step and must have read the instructions 100 times. I would have been worse than this had I not hand held myself every step. (Maybe not shaking the parts or touching the thermal paste though)

7:45 You definitely YOLO, in some extent. In this context it would mean gather the pieces and checking the details later. I've seen MANY times how a given component does not fit (you name it, CPU cooler/AIO, RAM, some motherboard CPU incompatibility). I know there's a lot of research behind, but still 5#¡+ happens. Sometimes that's the fun part of a PC project.
