              Loved this video. Even when the intention of the video is a complete failure and everything goes south from what was expected, they somehow turn it into entertaining viewing that gets millions of views. I actually learned a couple things here like OEM ram not being capable of working in any other system, by design.

                  Ah yes intel:
                  "Should we name our cpu socket types?"
                  "Nah, let's just use pin count, people 20 years from now will surely know the difference,
                  And besides we would NEVER reuse the same pin count"

                                  Of course it sucked for gaming. That graphics card is not a gaming card. Also, why is building an LGA775 rig such an adventure for you guys? I've put so many of those together I could do it in my sleep. You guys seem to find a lot of 775 mobos with DDR3 slots though. I've only seen one that didn't have DDR2. Also never had a problem putting HP RAM in an Acer mobo or what have you.

                                          the Radeon HD 6350's were deployed in mass with the Dell optiplex series in 2012 Specifically the 390s... i know this because its 2019 and where i work we are still using those computers and that shitty DVI splitter connection on the back.
