    HAL ‘Dignified Potato Masher’ gets my vote
    Hopefully this upgraded system will cheer up you and your grandmother again just like back in 2010 :)
    Good luck everyone :)

    Going from an 860 to a 1600 is going to be night and day for any productivity work.

    Best of luck Hallon mate, and good luck to everyone else too.

    Good luck Hallon, love the creativity plus his future seems promising and maybe an upgrade will make it even better.

    Joel should get the upgrade package, but the best system on this list has to be the potato masher :3


    HAL is going to absolutely crush this week, but I voted for Pascal for that sweet R7 1700 upgrade, even if I don't think he'll get it.

    Best of luck to all contestants, and props to Techspot and HUB for selecting some different system criteria!

    That DIY case makes Hal a winner in my eyes.

    I think since Joel has a computer that is on its last legs he should get the upgrade.

    Potato smasher has my vote
    I like the creative case building, as a modder/builder myself I'm a sucker for anyone being creative.

    Looks like he may not win but to me, ol' unfaithful deserves the parts. His setup isn't stable, so to me he clearly deserves the upgrade.
