My current rig is still well,
but Intel tempts with its new overpriced sell,
AMD still lags like hell,
oh well

Samsung products oooh!
Gigabyte, Enermax too!
I want all the things....

Original above... but some syllable counters get confused on a few of the words and punctuation... so a 'cleaned up' version is below..

Samsung products ooh
giga-byte enermax too
I want all the things

(Not sure why most programmatic syllable counters wants to count "Gigabyte" as 4, but "Giga-byte" as 3.. sigh)
