  1. Welcome to Episode 4 of Upgrade My PC Please!

    First things first, last week's episode we had you voting for five PCs in need of upgrades and you voted Akki’s "a-cart-ski" the most worthy of receiving the proposed package. Therefore we have our first New Zealand-based winner and coming Akki’s way is a brand new Ryzen 5 1400 CPU, Gigabyte B350 motherboard, 8GB of DDR4 memory and the Fractal Design Focus Mini G computer case.

    So congratulations to Akki and the good news is all four runners-up will be receiving a Rainbow Six Siege game code from Ubisoft. Big thanks again to Ubisoft for supporting the series and providing our contestants with free games.

    Don’t forget to vote each week as that will place you in the running to win some cool prizes and that will be a global giveaway. Last week Ed Samuels won a Ryzen 5 1600 processor. This week we have another very cool prize, for now we have five PCs all in need of various upgrades so let’s check them out…

    • Samuel ‘Sam's Cougar’ from Australia
    • Kevin ‘Hayabusa’ from the United States
    • Alex ‘Minion’ from the United States
    • Mckay ‘Zeus’ from New Zealand
    • Gabriel ‘Deathstar’ from the United States

    That's 5 power hungry FX-6300 PCs all in need of an upgrade. It’s your job to let us know which one you think is the most deserving of receiving our proposed upgrade package. To cast your vote please go to our forum poll.

    By signing up for the forums, commenting and voting you’ll also go in the running to win some cool prizes, and again, that part will be a global giveaway.

    Speaking of which, the readers winner for Episode 3 is JKWilli, congratulations! You have an awesome Ryzen 5 1500X processor from AMD coming your way. Big thanks to AMD for providing this prize. Remember to vote and comment every week as we have more awesome prizes for our readers to take home. Voting is open until Friday.

    Upgrade my PC Please will continue with weekly episodes every Tuesday for the next few weeks, so watch, vote, comment, spread the word, and repeat!

    Good luck guys! Gabriel's 750 ti has become a bit dated, and combined with the FX 6300, it just makes it even worse, so he has my vote.

    Good luck Gabe! You need it the most. That 750ti will slow you down. A much needed upgrade along with the CPU. Mostly since everyone else has a RX 480/GTX 1060 or better.

    Hard to choose this week, I'm going with the random number generator method to decide.

    Gabriel 'Deathstar' deserves the upgrade

    I had a 750 ti and it was good years ago but now it's not cutting it especially for AAA modern games

    Gabriel has my vote, gosh that 750 ti is horrendous especially when its paired with the FX-6300. Honestly, I feel like Steve could have went for the Ryzen 3 1200 and squeezed in a 1060 3gb

    Gabriel FTW! He deserves that upgrade the most, although I did have a hard time picking who to vote.

    (And here I am, running my games on integrated graphics. :'()
