Live Stream: How To Pick Parts

philip April 27, 2016

The stream is over - thanks everyone for joining us!

Join us Thursday, April 28th at 2pm CDT on Twitch for a live stream with myself (philip) and Ryan (manirelli), discussing how to go about picking parts for your next build.

It'll be a live Q&A session, as well as an opportunity to plan my build for the upcoming Dreamhack event in Austin. I'll be taking suggestions from the community on what to include in the build, and then we'll be building it on the stream next week (so that I can take it to the BYOC at Dreamhack the next day).

We'll be talking about how to go about planning your build, how to pick parts, and what things to take into consideration. Hope you can join us!

Join us on Twitch at 2pm CDT for Dark Souls 3 game play with live FCAT and performance monitoring!

For the gaming PC we'll be using the system from our build guide that we put together two weeks ago.

We'll be going through the game while watching the performance live on stream. We'll also swap out a few different graphics cards to compare frame rates and temperatures.

Starting with this stream, we'll be broadcasting from the new PCPartPicker Twitch channel. Then in the following days we'll upload the 4K version of the footage to our PCPartPicker Youtube channel.
