Having had the fx 6300 before, the Silver Shadow gets my vote. Good luck to you and everyone else!
Dakota "Silver Shadow" gets my vote
Go CAD-box, that PC looks like it needs some TLC and an upgrade is a good reason to give it some. Not to mention the upgrade would be quite significant.
If my 'server' makes it through for the next round, prepare to see some real old junk ^^
Seriously? 4th gen i5 leading the vote??? whatahell guys, be fair. Hands down Dakota deserves the upgrade the most.
that i5-4670 would eat fx6300 for breakfast. I know because I still own such myself, but my country is not eligible for this competition sadly
Good luck to everyone in episode 1 and thanks to Techspot and Hardware Unboxed for the cool series concentrating on the viewers
Tough call here. Both the CAD Box and the Silver Shadow are dual-purpose, and in desperate need of upgrades. Not ashamed to admit that it was the nostalgia of that old aluminum Cooler Master case that swayed my vote. Best of luck to everyone!
I voted for silver shadow, but good luck to everyone who is in this episode
Damn after seeing these pc's I need to enter my prebuilt Dell that I've updated as much as possible.
Dakota 'Silver Shadow' gets my vote. GL everyone!
Good luck to everyone who entered and for the people that say "my pc is older than the people selected", well... you should have entered in. Anyways, let's be thankful to the people who made this giveaway upgrade possible. Cheers.
Good luck guys
Better builds then my current one but my vote will go to
Hayden 'CAD Box' from Australia
I voted for the Old Boy, good job at trying to keep up with technology Mason, I too struggle and hope to get mine uploaded for the next build!
GL to all who entered!
There is too many people voting for cad simply because cad was mentioned.
Awesome! Good luck everyone!
As someone who does more work than games myself, I vote for CAD Box. Hope you win. Also, too bad my country is not listed, else I would have also entered.
I voted for Silver Shadow for the CPU upgrade and envy of the sweet looking case which will look even better with the arctic motherboard inside it.
That guy with the pentium I know that feel. Love this series already. Keep up the good work Steve!
In my book, all of these systems deserve an upgrade. But, some more than others... Will have to go with Dakota's "Silver Shadow". For his uses, that CPU just isn't cutting it.
All I say, work first, then gaming
I agree what your saying to a point though, you basically suggested to every build a new mobo/cpu/ram combo at witch thats pretty much building core of a new PC
But all in all put in my vote good luck to the contenders
Gonna have to toss my vote in for the CAD Box here, was a really tight decision between it and Silver Shadow, but the memories of slow school computers taking a minute to just save Word documents... Can't even begin to imagine what it'd be like to handle CAD work on that relic. This video was a real gem, can't wait to see the results!
Good Luck to all the contestants!
Great idea for series
Good luck for the contestants
They all seemed comparable! The last two definitely seem like they needed an upgrade to me though!
