    I feel like Prowl needs the upgrade the most. As a C2D and DDR2 user myself I fell his pain

    Voted for Francesca :)
    As someone who also switched to a pc from a console I know how hard it can be. Good luck to all contestants!

    I think that building a pc with seccond hand parts its good due to better hardware with less price.

    I hear ya. I have a Dell Inspiron XPS 410 I got for cheap recently with a Core 2 Duo E6300 that I upgraded to a Q6600 with the BSEL mod for use as a cheap Linux machine. It actually does okay with a GT 650 in Valve titles (HL2, TF2, CS:GO) and Borderlands 2 on Ubuntu MATE 16.04.2 and the proprietary Nvidia drivers. I tested it in Windows 10 with some World of Warships, and I was seeing occasional CPU bottlenecks. YMMV.

    I like the way that Joshua salvages old parts and gets some use out of them.

    "Tiny Purple Pixel Eater" won my vote with its look. I love how simple, yet awesome this small thing looks.

    Joshua gets my vote--although my wife's pc is still rocking a Q6600. It's still serviceable, but she doesn't play any games on it. And Steve is right; those are some great photos.
