Music production on an FX-6300? I know someone who has an excavator 8-core and still has immense issues with his cpu. Yeah, that guy's definitely getting my vote.

I think that the best thing would be to give the hardware to the CAD PC, and have the winner send the previous CPU/MB to the Silver Shadow.

Edit: And the Silver Shadow CPU can then go to me. :) The 6300 won't be a big upgrade over the 1090T, but it has lower power and somewhat higher performance in games, so is still an upgrade.

Wanted to leave a suggestion for future umpp voting threads. Having some pictures with the entry names would help people like me with short attention and poor memory with a quick reminder of what pc was what one.
 
Good luck to everyone!

I voted for old boy Mason, he had the worst computer of them all. We can't assume he will only use it for gaming when he really hasn't had a good enough system for anything else. Maybe he will become a popular streamer and create content on YouTube. Though, the final 2 pcs are also very deserving of upgrades.

Good luck, but I cast my vote for the Silver Shadow build, It needs an upgrade the most, and I too love that retro aluminum case and look! Give this guy some new specs!
 
Good luck all. As someone who recently won a brand new gaming PC in a competition I feel compelled to vote and help others. All are deserving! Great idea for a series.

Thanks for the vote mate, wish I could win but after seeing the others I can see why they're more deserving and also about the streaming part we have saying here in Aus "First world country, Third world internet" haha

Anyway, good luck for whoever wins here :)
