Default Where does LinusTechTips get all his hardware??

This is a question from Erectionproblem (really hope that's just a nickname...):

Hi, I watched your videos and I have a question. How do you get all the money to buy all that? You have really impressive stuff, stuff I wish I had. Lol I upgraded my PC this year for the second time and now my 5850 wont even run fking bf3 on the highest settings. :( It really sucks because I'm a Battlefield player since 2002, and you seriously need 580's in SLI to run it on the highest settings. :( I do not even meet recommended requirements. Well whatevs, thanks for the great video's goodbye!
I have many sources for hardware. Sometimes companies send me review units (which I often send back once I am finished) to look at and evaluate, other times I borrow things from my work (NCIX.com - Canada's Premier Computer Store - Online PC Discount Store, Buy Computer Accessories), and the other most common way I get things is the good old fashioned "buy it" method :)

I've actually even been known to BORROW hardware from friends to complete a review if I need it for reference and I don't have one!
Please note: I am not here to provide official NCIX support on these forums.

For faster (and official) NCIX service please contact our customer care team at www.NCIX.com (Canada) or www.NCIXUS.com (USA)

My System Specs


I lol'd at the nickname.

NCIX is the best shop right now in Canada for computer components because of 2 things : best service around and biggest selection (pricematch would make that 3 but it's not unique anymore...)

Linux probably has the dream job of many geeks around the world...;)

You are one lucky geek! :D
