View Full Version : Computer Builds Section

I think we should have a computer builds section since after all most of us have computer stores and do sell computers. It can used to be to help others with configurations, overclocks, or budgets. For instance if i have a customer that wants to spend $500 and wants a somewhat decent gaming computer i can post my build and others my notice a way to save money with a video card that might benchmark higher than the one i listed and for a cheaper price. We are humans and do overlook things at times and getting help from others will help. This forums already covers many aspects of running a store from legal advice, marketing and repairs, but why not go one step further. There is many things that others may not know that will help out with builds like for instance anything over 1333 ram on a AMD platform is overclock.

I hope technibble takes this into consideration as it will help out our fellow members. They can also use it for reference when they just want a quick build that's been verified by a member instead of searching for a build configuration online.

Sounds like a good idea to me!

I agree as well. I am not a gamer and having some good current info for building a gaming computer would be helpful.

I don't really do custom build but I won't not do them and I'm happy to give my input on builds.

I generally create new forums based on necessity. If lots of threads are being created on a certain topic, then it needs its own forum. I havent really seen any builds threads.

Ill make you a deal, start a thread for custom PC builds, if it picks up and maintains good momentum, I will create a forum for it, move the one big thread to the new forum and split the posts as if they were originally posted in separate threads.

My main concern would be after a couple months, the hardware might be outdated, or the prices could change.

In my opinion, it's more of an end-user/hobbyist type thing and they are the ones who usually get caught up in discussing those kinds of things. Or it ends up turning out to be more of a brag thread where people list obviously top-end parts and than ask "is this a good build?"

I like this idea. I would use it if this turns out good.
