    All these PCs need an upgrade! I voted for Prowl because it looks nice. ^_^
    Also Andrew got an sma8?!? I understand that a case will last a long time but isn't that overkill?

    I'm so biased for John's, being a former Pentium owner... Go Lazy Moose!

    Had to vote for Francesca. Just the name of her PC had me chuckling. It's adorable.

    Wool awesome to see my partners Tiny Purple Pixel Eater. Glad the photos turned out ok. I've been away for work so we had to Skype to help get the entry details accurate and photos up. Vote for an aussie girl gamer. Don't let the US take another win. Haha

    2 CPU's walk into a bar. Which one pays for the drinks?

    The one with the most cache.

    I voted for Berry. Although I wanted to vote for Josh, his upgrade just didn't make as much sense to me. While the Ryzen 7 1700 IS the best for rendering work, I feel like he'd be hampered by the low amount and lower speed of the RAM. If he had the same or similar upgrade as Berry, then Josh would've been a no brainer. While the Ryzen 5 1600 isn't as good at rendering work, it's still very capable.

    Andrew's case IS overkill though and I wish he put more of that budget towards his hardware. After all, what's the point of an enthusiast level case showcasing 9ish year old parts?

    I really feel like "Prowl" deserves the win this week. Looking at his photos and just the neatness of the case in general, I feel like Joshua must really have a lot of pride in his PC and thus treats it as such and keeps it clean and tidy. Even though its a lower end system he really does a stellar job of keeping all his cables neat and organised and just by looking at it, you wouldn't have guessed the specs were that old. Good Luck Josh! Really hope you win the upgrade package this week!
