    Since you guys loved our Amazon basics and Monoprice builds, we decided to get just a little more sketchy and attempt to build a PC using only parts we purchased from Strap in folks, because I can pretty much guarantee that everything WON’T go to plan.

                Wish is only for shopping therapy(useless stuff).9/10 of the things i bought were shit quality.So the point is...if you think you need anything from wish you can probably create it by yourself.It will be 100% better quality.

                  I hope strap on does not mean in Canada what it means in the US if so :O "Strap on guys, I can pretty much guarantee this is not going to go according to plan"

                                  Im pretty sure the items they are pricing are way cheaper than they're stating. Prices seem high even for wish.

                                      Most of this video was, "How much did we pay for this?"
                                      And, the budget cost.
