    Great idea for a series. Gives back to the community and provides good upgrade path information for those looking for help! Hope it does well. And Steve, introduce yourself at the start of the videos ;)

    Was a close call between 4 and 5. I picked 4 because the system looked like it had some heavy hours of use and the man plays eu4 and civ6. 5 had the best case and worst hardware. I almost feel bad for not choosing it, even had one of those old school cold cathodes to match.

    Hayden's CAD box has pretty much the same specs as my PC so I'll be voting for you . Good luck to everyone and thank Steve and TechSpot for this generosity.

    Hye.this is a good opportunity for us to upgrade our pc rig. I really need an upgrade because my mobo is failing me and gpu is getting slower. I'm using core i7 3770k, my mobo is asus p8z77v pro, 16gb org kingston hyperx beast 2400mhz, sapphire 7970 ghz edition, a corsair hx850w gold psu, my cpu cooled by thermaltake water extreme 2.0 and using coolermaster HAF XM case. my memory dim no 3 and 4 are failing and cannot read my memory. currently I'm using dim no 1 and 2, hopefully I'm lucky enough to be in this pc upgrade competition.but unfortunately its not available for my country's region yet . so sad.wish all of us luck. keep up the good content. im rooting for u guys

    All the contestants are worthy, it's a shame they can't all be upgraded. But that isn't how a competition works, so the best of luck to everyone!

    I love the idea of upgrading the Silver Shadow (that would look epic) but the CAD computer is an important rig...
