    Re: Guide to Rig Suggestions

    Good Guide, But disagree to some stuff you have said

    Why not if you prefer a certain cmpany over something you have the full right to put it up that you don;t want to go for that company. And this could be of many factors including bad RMA experience, lack of service centers in the city or maybe just because of a bad experience with the product.
    Not everybody needs an expensive power supply not everybody needs to overclock. You cannot force someone to OC just because it will be better for him if he really doesn't want to. Yes the part about increasing knowledge is important. Rather we who recommend configurations should keep our mind about the requirements of the OP and not suggest a "Gaming Rig" in that budget.

    Re: Guide to Rig Suggestions

    Sir, those are good reasons. Why would i call that having a bias? A bias is when you favour a company unreasonably with no good explanation.

    Quoting from the OP:-
    "IF there is a need for the power, IF the components you're buying are OC-capable, the expensive power supply suggestions and OCing tips and targets WILL be put out."
    ^That's what i was refering to, i don't see how im "forcing" someone to overclock.
    On the flip-side, if the person does increase his knowledge, he'd come to the conclusion just like many others that moderate OCing with good know-how of what is being done has zero negative effects. After that, it's his call, and is clearly evident from what has been written IMO.

    In anycase, thanks a lot for reading, and i hope i was able to elaborate a bit more on it. :)

    @WingZero
    Thank you kind sir :)

    @Gannu
    Thanks a lot for the support :)
    To be honest, i think if it had to be sticky'ed , it would've been done by now. I recieved a rep. from a kind mod, that's about it.
    Im guessing maybe it isn't "sticky worthy"? :p

    And yes, like you said, even if it is sticky'ed im sure a lot of people will post w/o reading it, however i do feel it will make that bit of difference, so it was worth the effort.
    On the other hand if it doesn't get sticky'ed, i'll put it in my signature to try and spread the word and save newbies from themselves :p
    Thanks again :)

    Great thread. :)

    On the topic of guidelines for those giving suggestions, my pet peeve is the excessive use of the word "period" :p People use it like its the be-all end-all answer to any argument :eek:hyeah: VX450 is the best budget PSU. Period! CM690 is better than Antec 300. Period! A megan fox wallpaper makes your PC faster. Period!
    Edit: A quick search came up with perfect examples :)

    SB live 5.1~almost crap for music...........yes there is difference in games and a very marginal improvement in music. Period.

    Conversion = loss of quality! PERIOD!

    dont touch seagate. go for wd. period.

    Good thing is that this post is made sticky.

    Admins can do one more simple stuff during registration like,

    -- Tell new comers not to throw any old Working PCs, instead ask how to upgrade the components if possible or Donate it to charity or Sell it of to people needing it.

    This reduces e-waste.

    -- People when making suggestions, suggest only stuff needed by the members and stuff that is a little bit Future Proof.
