    HMR2 looks like a real computer and is completely outdated. It has the most weak CPU and the aged mobo in this competition today. All others loose an integrity or modern enough. It's really weird for me why people vote for the better configurations.

    I think it's because ppl don't want to vote just to build a gaming toy for someone :D

    If the first one went for a cheaper mobo and no extra cooler (the wraith spire is more than enough) then 16gb of ram would be an easy fit. the second one is just an *****, his fault for buying the pentium. the third one has good suggested upgrades. The fourth one once again there's an unnecessary cooler when the box one is sufficient (that would get him the 1600). The fifth one also has good suggested upgrades.
