This isn’t the place for baby steps into hardcore hardware. No, you have to go full nerd in order to appreciate PCWorld’s latest video show and podcast. Every two weeks, executive editor Gordon Mah Ung and senior editor Brad Chacos will be joined by a special guest to riff on hardcore tech topics like PC gaming, videocards, CPUs, and other forms of rarefied silicon. 

In Episode 1 of The Full Nerd, Gordon and Brad are joined by reviews editor Alaina Yee to hash out the week’s nerdiest topics:

  • Intel’s new “game-ready” Skull Canyon NUC and whether it can replace a tower.
  • GeForce GTX 1080 vs. GTX 1070: Which one should you buy?
  • Your burning questions regarding PC components and PC building. (Have a question? Drop it in the comments or email and we may answer it in the next episode.)
