Ok so I have quite a bit of free time on my hands, and lately I've noticed A LOT of users join, and immediately post that they want to build a rig for X amount of money, then after we help them. We generally never see them again unless they have problems. I was thinking that I could make a thread with builds at a bunch of budget points, starting at, lets say $600 and going up in increments of $100 til like $1000, then going up by $200 (just a thought). I would update these every week, to keep them current and the pricing correct. I would do this in hopes that it eliminates a few people from joining and leaving and also for people who just have that question.
Would that be worth it. They would only be gaming rigs, since thats what the majority of people ask about.

You are assuming they read the forums. Many won't read the very page of the thread they are posting in.

Sounds like a lot of work you are putting on yourself there. Then others are going to want in as you did it wrong. You picked an nvidia card when the AMD card is better and so on and so forth. Hardware cost change based on location as well. A whole lot of cans full of worms with this idea.

Lol I had the exact same thought couple weeks ago for the exact same reason. To many people join and basically ask us to do everything for them and never come back.
All of them asking the same question.
Not to mention a handful of people that joined like 2 yrs ago with only 2 or 10 posts.

+1 to this.
Also for people saying "they don't read the forums" we can just simply link them the thread and be done with it

Yes, that was one of the things I was thinking. We can simply link them instead of wasting like 40 posts about it.

You kinda need slightly different stuff per region, at least eu/us, and it's more generic builds unless you customize per person and their needs etc with a questionnaire

I know regions are going to be different, Canada and US prices have sort of leveled out, rigs are roughly the same amount. A questionnare is kind of a cool idea, thanks! biggrin.gif

It's worth if you wanna put in a lot of work and babysit people

it's more worth to talk to peeps, maybe a newspaper ad and charge a 10% premium for somewhat decent tech knowledge and assembly, if you find it fun enough to spend a lot of time on

Make that 4.

Keeping up to date builds with the highest price/performance/quality(Which I personally strive for) usually has to be done on a day to day basis, keeping the builds updated would be very time consuming. That's coming from a guy who normally only uses Newegg as well.

Can't say I haven't also thought about it though.
