We’re starting this new year off with a brand-new video! We teamed up with our friends Dalton and Cliff from MSI to build an AM5 gaming rig.

Sam and I had an awesome time with them both, and it was a lot of fun shooting my first-ever PC build video. It had been a few years since I built a rig, so to do it in front of a camera was nerve-wracking! Fortunately, it all went smoothly, and you can watch all the action below:


To celebrate all this, we’re giving one lucky community member a chance to win a limited edition Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora™ themed AMD Radeon™ RX 7900 XTX GPU!



Starting 1/5/24 at 12 PM CST and ending on 1/12/24 at 12 PM CST, you can email us at with your AMD Community Forum Account name, and the answer to this question:

  • What was our “good luck charm” shown near the end of the video before we booted into the BIOS?
  • Only correct answers emailed to us will be counted as one (1) entry.

Don’t miss your chance to upgrade your rig for 2024 and good luck, Red Team!

Winner Update: Happy to officially announce our winner: @VRshaggyCongratulations to them, and a big thank you to everyone who entered and watched our video. We had a great time making it and hope to produce some more fun content like this in the future!
