This week on The Full Nerd, Gordon Mah UngBrad Chacos and Alaina Yee tackle life's hard questions, such as whether Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1060 is an RX-480 killer or a GeForce GTX 980 killer, depending on how much you buy one for. Brad also talks about AMD’s fix of its alleged PC-killing Radeon RX-480.

In Builders’ Corner, Gordon proposes two fantasy budget-PC builds that he thinks are way better than the current Envy Level Build. The first is Intel-based and the second, AMD-based. Reasonable people can disagree on this, or in other words, watch Alaina and Brad unload on Gordo’s build.
