    Very anxious to see who next season will be with Upgrade My PC Please. Hoping to see maybe a wider variety of hardware needing upgraded but one thing that I think would make the season stand out would be throwing in a "Wild Card" component either from a generous sponsor (so that the upgrade won't exceed the $500USD budget) or from another donated source (Steve, you have parts collecting dust, right?). lol

    Francesca and her APU really deserves something better, that should be terrible.

    Altough I have one question, is the "Upgrade My PC Series" support Europe already?
    I have my Phenom II dying on me here with 8 years old :)

    When I saw "Phenoms" in the title I got all excited that it might have been me, but, alas... maybe next week.
    I voted for the first one, because it's very similar to my situation.

    My vote went to Joshua this time, I was in his boat a few months ago with a old q6600 I got from my brother, I added a gtx 1050ti and there was no game I couldn't play with at least 35 fps on medium/high except Mass Effect Andromeda which on low and 720p wouldn't even get 25fps, but I think that was just my poor old q6600 trying to save my time and rather try to get me to play a game that's worth my time:p Upgraded to ryzen though so all good now:cool:
