I would like to see some more builds up there for the following categories:

  • Mini-ITX
  • Liquid Cooled

Though the listed build might be controversial as to being the best, it could generally be accepted as being a very good build.

Perhaps there could be a "Spec My Build" request section too, where people could detail their requirements and have people suggest some components.

Also, the builds should be listed with their build date, the date the build was last edited.

It would be handy if earlier versions of the build could be linked too.  You could give the build a version number which might also indicate how long the build has remained. For example, v 19.08 could indicate the spec was decided in 2019 in August.

Mini-ITX is something I'd like to do soon, also I would like to introduce changelogs but need to talk to the rest of the staff about this. Thanks for the comment!

With 'Gaming' builds, I'd like to see a move away from $xxx builds altogether, to more intuitive resolution led builds, i.e. 1080/1440/4k builds using a representative suite of games and a focus on getting the biggest bang for the buck.

@robinhood

problem there is that Resolution / Price / Quality is pretty similar to the old price, quality, time triangle rule of thumb

Replace time with Resolution and there you have it, two are always achievable, want to play 1440p on an RX 580, no problem... but quality settings will suffer... Want to game at 4K Ultra? well then the value aspect is out the window.

Since folks need to buy the kit and that at the end of the day will be the deciding factor for 9/10 builders its probably most sensible to keep it cost based.

Although in each build it does tell you what it's gearing for detail and res wise.

Don't know if this is really the right place but i think the $600 gaming system should either become a $500 dollar build or the rx 570 could be replaced by the 1650 super. I know this is just a really small thing and mostly not noteworthy but I suppose its at least a good discussion point at this price if someone was looking for some advice.

I really agree with this!

Prices fluctuate and items change (are replaced by newer/updated revisions/models).
