It's been a while since a custom PC build has been done on this channel, and this one is fairly different to your usual Gaming PC build series.
All of the parts shown in these videos (unless otherwise stated) were spare parts hanging around cluttering up my space. I decided to gather the best parts together and build a Gaming PC. Surprisingly, thanks to the fairly decent graphics card and case that I had, this system really isn't that bad. The weakest link is the CPU, but even this old socket-939 based system can put up with a fair bit of torture.
This Playlist is dedicated to a project that will be carried out throughout 2012.
I uploaded a Geek Talk video revolving around the usability of PowerPC Macs in 2012. Although the response was generally fantastic, there was a large amount of negativity when the video was posted on a popular forum.
"My PowerPC Promise" is the title given to my ultimate PowerPC experiment. During the summer holidays, I will ban myself from using any Intel machines for a large period of time. I will use nothing but PowerPC Macs. More specifically, a PowerPC Mac that's been purchased for the purpose of this challenge. Throughout the months I will be upgrading my Mac, giving detailed tours / explanations of the machine, running through software and anything else related. After this, the experiment will begin.
The purpose of this experiment is to achieve a better understanding of the usability of PowerPC Macs during 2012 for a mid level user like myself. I will also apply the things that I've learnt and I'll upload a video giving my thoughts on the usability of PPC Macs for average users.
Please remember that this experiment, although conducted for a reason, mainly revolves around fun and entertainment. I am not pretending to know everything there is to know about PowerPC VS Intel, I just want to give my view on the situation with some evidence to back it up.
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the evolution of "My PowerPC Promise"!
This is a very small but incredibly fun build! I had a really good time putting together this Micro-ATX FM2 build for my parents.
This PC was built to replace their dying Athlon 64 based system that I trash-picked and built up for under £50 a few years ago.
So far, this system has been performing amazingly. Despite the lack of graphics card, the graphical performance and general smoothness of this machine is fantastic. This is my first experience with the AMD APU line and so far, I'm extremely impressed.
