Build Plan Thread Recommendations (Please read before posting)

Maybe list a preference of case? Cases are a very personal decision, or just list that you don't care for how it looks.

Otherwise it's a very helpful guide :) Cheers!

We have something similar to this in some other forums I visit. It's also pretty helpful to know if they're reusing any parts, whether they want crossfire/sli and to what extent they'll be overclocking, if any.

In general, it's good if they can list any of the aforementioned, as well as any information that may be relevant.

Leaving out pieces of information such as old components you can reuse is not a good idea.

It's good to know if they have any preferences towards a company or product. That comes up pretty often when I browse through forums.

Sorry dude, there will be no biased opinions on these rigs.

We should always push to what's best for the money regardless of brand fanboyism.

*snip* P.S - let me know if I've missed something vital

Might be a good idea to setup a template of some sort that people can copy&paste and then edit as required.

I'll PM you a suggestion

Also it is nice when people include whether they need things like wireless card or sound card e.t.c.

you should also ask when the person will be buying the computer. sales come and go frequently. a rig made today may be different from another rig made the week before.

imo a three day notice would be ideal.

Man, if only you made this thread a bit sooner, I dun goofed up many of those guidelines when I made my thread a few days ago. Guess that's what I get for being impatient instead of doing the smart thing and lurkmoar.

What is the point of following this outline when most people just see one or two words that don't go together, or just completely ignore what the purpose of the build is, and just say stuff that has been repeated a thousand times over in this forum?

 

ugh.

To suggest any more points that the poster should do is what are the intentions, whether to OC or SLI/CF. The new thread post should be clearly stated like "[intention] PC under [budget]" And the post itself should be with clear answers, as to what one needs with the budget (PC, OS, monitor, peripherals), intention (most important to least important), whether there are some parts one reuses, OC and/or SLI/CF right away, later or none, preferences for the case or colour of the parts, SSD yay or nay, and finally where one lives and what sites wants to buy the parts. That way people who are helping people, they can help them fast and  don't have to search answers from long posts.

@Windspeed36, put some pcpartpicker builds @ 1k, 1.5k and 2k inc with and without peripherals in your OP as a start for people wanting to build machines.

Been over this a few times and we won't: parts change, prices change, availability of parts to regions and bias.

@Windspeed36 you should add what cooling you prefer (air or liquid) what kind of climate you live in (this helps decide how much of a problem heat will be) and what brands you prefer (if any)

you aim for gaming* your aim is gaming* you're aiming for gaming*

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

I figured I'd make this thread to make life easier for people to give advice and feedback on your proposed system. If you add these simple answer it means we don't have to ask you all this before we can give you answers :)

1. Budget & Location

You may have listed a heap of parts that all add up to your preferred budget but it is easier if you just list the total amount you'd like to spend and the currency as well as if you'd consider going above that budget for more performance. We need the location as well because $US are different to $AUD and $CAD ect.

2. Aim

What is the system going to be used for? Web browsing, 3D work? Different systems need different levels of performance - a computer based for web browsing and office use won't handle heavy graphic design and video editing and a proper video editing system isn't good for gaming. If your aim is for gaming, please list what sort of gaming. In the same way that different usage types need different systems, you'll need a lot more power to run Far Cry 3 or Crysis 2 than you would Minecraft.

3. Monitors

How many monitors do you plan on running? Do you plan on moving to more monitors in the future? What resolution are they at too?

4. Peripherals

Do you also need to purchase peripherals such as keyboards and mice as well as monitors ect. Also please tell us if you'll need an OS such as Windows.

5. Why are you upgrading?

We ask this because you may see upgrading as the only path to solve an issue but things such as driver updates, reconfiguration or cleaning can boost performance without spending a cent.

Please copy and paste the major dot points into your thread as it makes it easier for us to give you better feedback.

Have fun and keep building :)

I just spent 5 minutes watching your avatar, awesome avatar.
