My graphics card is getting a little bit old in age - I think it's time to upgrade it to a Radeon RX 7900 XTX :)!

I'm happy with my Ryzen 5700X, but I think it would be nice to upgrade to a Ryzen 7800X

My most recent ‘upgrade’ was in fact a cobbled-together PC from old parts I’ve been keeping for ages. My daughter needed to do some maths homework online and I saw an opportunity to resurrect some ancient hardware. Windows 10 in dual monitor setup is now running nicely on:

P6T SE mobo

Intel i7-920 cpu (used to be OC at 3.8GHz, but not now)

16 GB of DDR3

750W Corsair PSU

and the kicker is the Radeon HD5770. 🙂

I had the choice between this and my brother’s old GTX(?) 450Ti, but I thought the DirectX12 support would come in handy.

Hoping to be able to build my first PC eventually. The next piece I’d need is a case. Maybe the MSI MPG VELOX 100R?

My next upgrade will be likely be a new graphics card as the one I have now struggles with some 1440p games. Which graphics card, no idea.

My most recent upgrade was a swap from my old AMD 3700X CPU to my current 5600X.  A nice upgrade.  My next upgrade, of course, will be to an MSI PRO B650M-A WIFI Motherboard.  🙂

Good luck to everyone.

My recent hardware present was an usb keyboard switch 😉 Nothing special but very useful.

Just recently built my PC with a 6800XT. Good luck everyone!

Next upgrade on my list is a hard choice between cpu/mb/ram or gpu. Though I guess I probably need a bigger psu before anything else, so maybe that's my next part. I need all the parts, but, everything is just too expensive now 😞 Most recent upgrade was a new cpu cooler. Was a definite improvement over the stock cooler, but, not as much as benchmarks made it look like.

 I could use a new mobo

It is crazy you are giving away my next upgrade! MSI PRO B650M-A WIFI Motherboard is my next upgrade...mainly because I intend to build a PC and it would be a good place to start! 😆

Upgraded from the 2700X to the 5800X3D

I recently upgraded my Adata SX8200 480GB to a Crucial P3 4TB, swapping my WD SN750 1TB to be my boot drive cause the Adata drive was being iffy and I wanted a larger SSD for some of those slow loading games.

A few weeks later, the Team group MP34 4TB went on sale for a few dollars more which is a TLC + DRAM drive vs the QLC Dramless one I got.

Some frustrated facepalming was done.

My most recent hardware upgrade was a 5700x to replace the 2700x that was in its place

I'm content with my 6800 XT, but it would be nice to get a 7800 XT or 7900 XT, so I can donate my old 5600 XT to a friend in need. It won't be much of an improvement over his GTX 1060 6GB but it would help enough for him to get 60 FPS at 1080p medium in most games.

Lovely motherboard, thanks AMD!

Been playing a lovely RPG, Sea of Stars.  It is classic and fun, a pleasant modern throwback JRPG and a reminder of the magic of the 16-bit era.

Looks cool. I can do a lot with that.

I won’t qualify but I upgraded to a XFX 7900 XTX from a 3080. I have to cap my fps because my monitor doesn’t go above 165 in the games I play. It’s a beast of a gpu!

Whoa, I jumped to Journeyman III. I qualify now! Thanks for all the likes!

that happened to me too lol idk why

Latest PC upgrade was a new case (5000X), next upgrade hardline water cooling or more storage.

My computer is so old that I got an email from the museum for my computer ............ So the next upgrade i'll be doing is the entire thing because it's old very old .

i really would like a cpu/mobo upgrade, even though i just got a ryzen 5600 & radeon 6400, games still don't look too spiffy. For the moment though cpu/mobo is first then maybe the gpu.

A graphics card for one of my computers was getting pretty old, and I got a really good deal on a brand-new RTX 4060 for $109. I couldn't resist buying it for the price.

My most recent hardware upgrade would be an AMD 5600X3D that I picked up from MicroCenter.  It's an awesome CPU and great for gaming.  Now if only I were a better gamer.....

Ah, the X3D series of CPUs will warm your heart but not break the bank.Ah, the X3D series of CPUs will warm your heart but not break the bank.

A CPU will most likely be next on my list. Thanks AMD and good luck all!

I would really want a GPU upgrade next, probably to the Radeon 7900 XT!

I'm using my 7 year old gpu, definitely need an upgrade.

Picked up a 5800X3D to drop into my newly acquired case last week. Build day is October 4. Watercooling parts should arrive later this month, and then I'll have everything fully complete by early November.

This prize would definitely serve well as the base for my next build.

Performance over Pretty.

Waiting for BF to upgrade my 3600X it's between a 5600x3d or a 5800x3d if the price is right. Wouldn't mind to have to upgrade if i win 😁 .
Good luck to all!

I'm working on my first build. I'm looking into E-ATX form factor cases right now. With the end of the year coming soon enough, there'll be newer cases to look forward to, along with reviews on cases of the year for the different sizes. Nice giveaway, AMD and Red Team! Enjoy October, everyone!
