    I was a console gamer since I was a lad. But after I was showed how to pick PC parts and make sure they work with each other I was hooked big time. So I have to go with Francesca & Tiny Purple Pixel Eater in hopes she can get a better experience. But good luck to all that get picked!

    Joshua got my vote, as for andrew who in their right mind buys the SMA8 case with that level of hardware ? I know people want a nice case but thats an 800$ US case thats a good PC in its self

    Again, all are deserving of upgrades, but I have to hand it to Josh's Prowl. That Core 2 Quad Q6600 was a great CPU when it came out 10 years ago, but even with the BSEL mod to enable a 3.0GHz overclock, it is a serious bottleneck. Best of luck to everyone!
