"AVERAGE" should be based on how current games play on the pc, not what someone spent. You need to have a defined set of rules of what settings people can use and at what fps they get. I could receive a pc that kicks games' a$$ for very little money, but is it performs above or below a certain mark I won't know how to judge it.

Yes I have SLI gpus, but what makes that above average? Is it because I have two gpus? Well then what about he person who has SLI 275s? Those are definitely well below the cost of your original specs. So you can't base it upon how much a persons setup cost. You should base it on how well it performs within certain parameters.

It's based on cost because that's easy for everyone to calculate on their own systems and on those posted by others. I also have SLI, and my rig is WELL under the $1200 limit, and runs most games on medium to high settings in 1920x1080 at 45+ FPS.

I was looking for a simple way to explain it that will be easy to follow and easy to judge based on sigs and pics. $1200 CURRENT value of ONLY the rig and the monitors. Meaning, if you buy all of your components new right now, how much would it cost? With an exception here and there of course, it's pretty easy to track down a price on any component anyone would have in their system and figure out a rough price.

What makes yours above average is the fact that the two GPU's cost as much as my entire setup, even with the current rebate the Egg is offering. lmao It says in the rules in the first post that dual GPU's are allowed.

I can understand why folks would want it based on performance, but that is just not easy enough to judge without posting benchmarks, and honestly, I could care less what my benchmarks are. Pretty mediocre I'd guess, better than some who have posted in this thread, but worse than others.

My system:

Galaxy GTS 450 GC 1GB x 2 - $200
MSI 790GX-G65 - $100
AMD Athlon II X4 - $75-$100
Ripjaws 2x4GB - $70
CM Real Power Pro RS-650 - $80
WD Caviar Green 1.5Tb - $70
Cheap Samsung DVD-R - $15
Red LED Strip - $5

Acer A221HQV - $100
Cheap Old Dell Monitor - $15

= $700 low end, $800 high end.

I understand that, but my cpu price is not even listed on newegg, so any user with my cpu will be disqualified? I am not trying to make it into the average user base, just trying to simplify things for others

Ebay, Amazon, TigerDirect... It doesn't HAVE to be Newegg. Just a general price of the same part bought brand new today.

I got most of my prices from Amazon and Ebay because most of what's in my rig Newegg no longer carries.

On newegg the cost of my rig minus the cost of the case and cpu comes to 1094. So I think your logic is flawed, especially since I bought my psu for a great price, so even if you factor in how much I bought my cpu for which was 299 I would be at just under 1400. Still pretty average if you ask me. Price should not be the issue, since price can fluctuate so much and so often.

The average real world user and the average ocn user is two different things. From my understanding this thread is for the in between setup of those two. No one should be offended because there setup is to expensive or nice, lol.

I think the price limit is a good way to go, if a person wants in so bad they can get rid of a piece of there rig imo.

I'm not going to argue over it... Again. It is what it is.

How many of you folks would like me to increase the limit to $1400? Poll added.

Voted for current status quo, if it's $1,400 it'll just get closer and closer to the official computer room pics thread tongue.gif

I like the description of what this thread is now.

I would second this. It's nice to see the low cost side of setups.
