I don't know if I've had bad luck the past couple of years or if these are common occurrences now.
About a year and a half ago I started a PC build project mainly because I saw from Youtube and Twitch how incredibly fast games had been advancing.
I also saw alot of videos on Youtube talk about building a medium performance gaming pc on a $600 budget (lol). Long story short, I purchased parts from multiple venders with different warranties and refund policies.
So to be clear, I didn't buy the exact parts of any youtube videos but the specs were equal or better.
I ended up having many issues with compatibility and had to return multiple items. Later I found out the motherboard only supported out dated video cards but by that time it was too late to return it.
I could go on and on with details but I won't. I finally got the pc to run decent and decided to bring my fustrations to a halt.
Liquid Sky has helped turn my pc and phone into gaming powerhouses.
So I guess I'm wondering if anyone else here has had similar experiences.
