Linus and his team shared that constructing a gaming PC with a budget of $100,000 is no simple task. In a previous video, they experimented with using Quadro cards for gaming and discovered that these non-GeForce cards performed exceptionally poorly. Instead, this PC build appears to focus on incorporating as many consumer-grade components as possible.

The core components of the PC only amounted to $5,000. The video delves into the additional expenses that caused the total cost to exceed the prepaid $100,000 from Jacobs. These expenses included custom sculpting of an aluminum chassis and providing Jacobs with high-end production gear to ensure his Minecraft experience was flawless. The most surprising aspect is that four power supplies powered the PC, with Linus advising Jacobs to connect them to separate electrical circuits to avoid the risk of short circuit.

They equipped the desk with cutting-edge technology and innovative features. They even lined some parts of the setup with gold, giving it an appearance that suits Jacobs’ style. However, Linus clarifies the desk does not come with a warranty, and they will make no further copies of this specific build. Therefore, anyone interested in this desk PC showcased in the video would need to source and manage it on their own.
