    When you replace everything, that's a new build. Not an upgrade of an existing computer.

    I still consider it an "upgrade" as I moved my old HDD (6x 1TB of them!!) from my old PC to there and I am still using my old monitors, mouse and keyboard. So yeah, it feels like an upgrade in a way XD
