Everyone's needs, budget, and hardware availability will be different so there's no perfect PC build(s) to cover all basis. Most people when they post on the forum already have a general idea what they want and just want help refining their parts list, finding cheaper or better parts than what they've already picked, or need help picking the last few components to go with the rest.

For general ideas and inspiration for a build watch build videos from popular tech youtubers like LinusTechTips, Bitwit, Paul's Hardware, and so on. You can also look at other builds people are making in the New Builds & Planning section on the forums to get ideas for your own build.

Also the fact that, lets be real, nobody would actually read the recommended builds even if they happened to be perfect for their use case. So it's completely pointless to do.

People didn’t even read the pinned thread at the top with the questions for their post so they are hardly going to go and read through every single build.

Or read manuals, or search before posting. I'm in a point where I will point out how easily the facts are to find if questions are obvious.

It it a great idea to have something like this, but I agree with Spotty, as there are million of combinations in builds, and many different budgets and use cases, so it would be hard to make something like this. There is a per 100 dollar budget, uses cases are gaming, creative work, or business and office, and just about every build will feature a ryzen processor, so it is a great idea, but due to a large number of use cases and budget combos, it would be hard. Also, storage and cases are very subjective matters, so that makes it even harder.

If the point was to just give everyone a list of a cookie-cutter build that thousands of individuals could do and they would all just be perfect for everyone, I would just tell you to save the headache and buy a pre-built. 

 

To OP:

 

The entire reason people build computers as opposed to buying them is because they are doing something specific with their computer, and can save money by building it themselves. Individualized approaches to a persons PC build will always be needed.

i love the idea, but what about the trolls that will give people bad parts lists, i remember running into that stuff on reddit not long ago

Ok here is the thing - there are many different use cases (business, creative, gaming) and may different budgets (700, 500, 2000,) and cases and storage are very subjective matters, so for those reasons, it would be tons of work to create something like this, although this is a good idea

This isn't reddit. Moderators here do a great job of upholding community standards. Years ago I started an actual troll thread for really stupid Pc builds, and the mods locked it because they thought someone on the forum might take it seriously. 

 

The fact you compare the LTT forum to reddit in any way beyond having threads is slightly offensive.
