    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!

    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
