CAD build for me. I understand that whole poor student feeling. Good luck all.
Good Luck everyone!
The HMR2 rig is similar to mine, but it's got a much better GPU and case. That's the luck of the draw I guess, or the fact that I didn't submit high resolution images until a day or two after I created my entry.
Best of luck to everyone.
The CAD one for me. I think the guy really needs it.
Of these, I feel like the worst of all these is the Dakota 'Silver Shadow' from the US.
Hopefully my rig gets put into the running. Both my CPU and Motherboard fried while I was helping watch a friends dog. brought the pc with me to get work done and while sleeping her roof/ceiling leaked into my Haf XB Evo case, resulting in my i7 and motherboard frying.
Currently I've saved up about 1,200 - 1,300 and trying to shoot for the 1950x + asus zenith extreme with g.skill 3600mhz ram.
Prior to the computer frying I sold my 7950 gpu around april in order to wait for the new amd line of gpus. they released the 500 series but I was looking for the vega 64/54. so I'll need a gpu, but $500 to add to the budget would vastly pick up the pace on my build since I can already afford the motherboard and ram.
Damn, that silver case is sweet, and I can see why he wants to keep it. I probably would have gone with the B350 Mortar arctic rather than the Tommahawk, though, just because I like that board more...
Close run so far, thanks everyone for voting and for participating as well. Remember that your system once submitted is in contention through the rest of the season. If you can bring updates (e.g. better photos, others) feel free to edit/reply on your entry so we can take a look. Good luck everyone!
Everyone with intel cpus are "Okay" The guy with the fx cpu needs to get his S*** together, he/she needs a ryzen.
FX 6300 w/8Gb of ram, good luck to all. I feel his pain I'm still rockin my FX 8150 8gb of 1600 running for 5 years. I have a build in mind and getting parts as disposable income is made more available to me. But Good Luck all who enters.
Good luck guys!
A deserving batch of machines, for sure. Good luck to all! I hope to make it into an episode in the future.
Good luck guys ! I hope the winner share some picture of the upgrade after
Very good luck to the CAD student, it doesn't take a monster but they still need this.
This is definitely something that SHOULD be found on much bigger channels but isn't. You guys are great and deserve so much more. This series has so much potential and I'd love to see it grow even more. Voted for Old Boy cos I know what it's like to have an old, hot intel CPU and 'Straya.
Good luck lads. Think I might have to enter myself.
Certainly is a close one Julio, nothing like a good race. Cheers to those who've voted for my Cad-box so far, didn't think I'd be even remotely in the running at this point.
Good luck Dakota and may the most deserving win, .
I think it's because its not just for gaming and actually, no offense, looks the worst out of them all even if it isn't the worst in terms of specification. That makes it appealing to voters. I'm now off to strip down my rig and spray some dust into it to make it look more basic before submitting my images
Hah, fair call. Mmm, doesn't look great inside but the case doesn't have a window or anything, bar the hole for a fan so never bothered making it look 'good' per say
Aye, Goodluck Dakota!
Go right ahead, its freeeeeeeeee!
Thanks for the vote It is quite an old config but people are voting for the ''most deserving'' because the other contestants use it for work which I don't, technically I'm going to use it for school but that won't change much
Good luck all, especially Mason!
What I find appalling though is people voting to upgrade a case that I would never consider purchasing because I don't have the money to consider it. It is hard to think of them worthy, when I can plainly see they are capable of the upgrade themselves.
Upgrade my i3-530 (with NVidia 9800GT 1GB DDR3) or my i3-3240 (with EVGA GTX 960).
