    Voting with Joel's "Ol Unfaithful" pc. Most of the rigs are pretty balanced and those i7 still do a good job even today ( if you can handle that power consumption ), but that GTX760 of his seems to hold back that pc the most...those cards did not aged well.

    The creativity and effort Hal put in his system, makes me feel like he deserves the win. It looks like he takes care of his PC and that is a no brainer for me. Good luck HAL

    Pascal Gets My Vote. That Ryzen 7 1700 will be wickedly awesome when OC'd to 3.8 - 4.0 GHz., the MSI B350 PC MATE is IMO one of the most Underrated B350 Motherboards out there, and DDR4-2666 is really what most people need, as speed higher than that are really just for Eye-Candy.

    Other than That, Good Luck to Everyone in this voting Frenzy!
