  1. Welcome to Episode 9 of Upgrade My PC Please!

    After a brief hiatus, we're back this week with our ninth episode of UMPP. Only one more episode to go after this one, though we'll do season final with a wrap up and few other surprises (think: more stuff to giveaway).

    In our last episode we had five randomly selected computers in need of various upgrades and you voted Scott’s FX-8120 PC the most worthy of receiving the proposed upgrades. Coming his way is a Ryzen 5 1400 processor, MSI B350 motherboard, 8GBs of DDR4 memory and a GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card.

    Don’t forget to watch and participate each week by voting and commenting as that will place you in the running to win additional prizes (and that's a global giveaway). Now lets see what we have this week…

    • Andrew ‘Berry’ from the United States
    • James ‘Chug Along Tank’ from the UK
    • John ‘Lazy Moose’ from Australia
    • Francesca ‘Tiny Purple Pixel Eater’ from Australia
    • Joshua ‘Prowl’ from the United States

    That's five very different PCs in need of upgrades. It’s now your job to tell us which is the most deserving of receiving our proposed upgrade package. To cast your vote please go to our forum poll.

    And now, the readers' prize for Episode 8 goes to Sarthakdhir! Congratulations mate, you've won an awesome AOC 24” G2460VQ6 FreeSync gaming monitor. Big thanks to AOC for providing that amazing prize. Remember to vote and comment every week as we have more awesome prizes for our readers to take home. By signing up for the forums, commenting and voting you go in the running to win cool prizes. Voting for this week is open until Friday.

    It will be cool seeing the after photos of the systems that have won each week.


    Good luck to all! I'm voting for the Ryzen 7 1700 upgrade - being an owner, I can attest to how beastly it is for video work!

    I've gone for Josh's "Prowl" not because he has old hardware but the upgrade helped the build be more balanced than most other builds.
