The Verge's $2000 PC Build Reaction Supercut
- Published on: 7/29/2019
- I don't know much about making computers, but I sure learned a lot when The Verge tried to make one. Tells you a lot about the credibility of these "tech reporters", which, in case you didn't already know, are run by Vox (which should be warning enough already). Their "how-to guide" video was posted September 13th, 2018, and less than a week later, Vox would take down this video, accuse it's critics of toxicity, harassment, and racism, before ultimately issuing illicit copyright takedown notices to Youtubers who posted responses addressing it's various errors, poor instruction, and misinformation. The Verge cited "editorial standards" as the reason for retracting the video, but that evidently hasn't stopped them before and it wasn't until an informed audience revealed their entire company to be a sham that they did anything about it.
Please Remember: The Verge is a company of Vox journalists, they are not to be considered in touch with any dimension of reality.
Their accompanying, albeit amended, article is still viewable. Needless to say, it should not be considered trustworthy PC building advice: https://www.theverge.com/2018/9/13/17828092/gaming-pc-build-custom-how-to-asus-intel-geforce-cost
