    Got around halfway through my guide on different builds at different price points. Going to update it till I get to 1500$

    Suddenly guides everywhere. :D

    I've started writing the How to Build A Computer one but won't be able to get pictures for at least another 2 weeks.


    Salvage: I look forward to your guide, I imagine it'll be quite good.

    Remember all guides need to be ran by a mod for approval before being posted.

    I ended up deleting that post since I went back and read the first page that has all of the answers. I should know better. :rolleyes:

    I've got my guide typed up and wouldn't mind some feedback. It's obviously not finished and there are somethings I need to clarify and of course add pictures. Anybody mind taking a read over it for me? Also I don't really know where to put it. It's saved as Word document at the moment.

    Hehehe.... I cut out most of the biased information about AMD over Intel... My main point is AMD is great for a budget under 1K.... John got the biased draft as a PM :eek:

    Here's the "live" draft. Completed by me with insight gathered from the interwebs. I'm a little tired, and very busy right now so here's my thoughts: https://docs.google.com/document/d/15D_eHSpiHpi1v3zbvCD20Ds9yin64PCR-8sIzPDq_og/edit?usp=sharing

    I was also thinking that somebody could edit a guide for the other side (Intel) of things.... Maybe Ninja since he's got a guide in the draft process as well?

    Apart from the fanboyism this is pretty well put together. I like you broke down the systems and why you chose what you did.

    Thanks Darren.. It's quite hard to be pro AMD within a certain price range without having a bit of bias.. I'll be making it even more factual in a few days. I have 2 volunteer events this weekend, an AP bio test on Monday and a pre calc test on Tuesday :eek::eek::eek:

    Personally I'd go Intel unless I had under $600 to spend. I'm looking at about $750 for a new mobo, i7, RAM, and GPU whenever my next upgrade comes along.

    I just went back to PC Part Picker and made a list of components... I don't know why, but the last time I looked up a decent Intel build it was averaging $1110+ which is why I've always been kinda pro-AMD... But for $150 more then what my computer costs without discounts and rebates, this is a nice rig: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/T9m6mG

    See my cost would be much higher because I'd go nVidia and also get 16GB of RAM.
