My vote goes for this division:[list=1]
[*]Buying suggestions[*]Troubleshooting[*]Overclocking (as it is now)[*]New Tech/Neat-Tech-Stuff
Honestly, there is no difference in helping people with their CPU/HDD/Vid card or whatever. It is usually the "subject matter" that people discriminate with when they visit a forum. I mean, I don't care what I help someone with when I am in the mood for it.. It's not as bad as you guys make it sound IMO with respect to video cards. The thread does NOT go beyond the 2nd page in a typical day.. And not even the 1st page for the most of the day. If it goes to the 2nd page, it usually means its a stupid question or no one knows the answer to it. Even then someone will come in and say something like "Dude! That sucks!" - which will automatically bump it up
Making a separate Video card" section is pointless IMO. Just make a sticky at the top with the obvious questions if it is such a hassle. I just don't think separating it based on different types of h/w is gonna be great in the long run. Too many mouse clicks for one thing to check all the forums.
It's nice to divide it to different sections b/c as I've said in this thread
, I think a lot of people that we want to be here "leave" b/c the content on TF is degrading by the day.
I mean, we have billions of threads of "Build me a computer" or "is this card any good?" or "3200+ Venice or 3500+ Venice".. It just gets boring for some people. It's nice to have some serious discussions about [computers/new "cool" stuff], instead of them getting buried by endlessly debates of which CPU/Vid card is better or which "system to build".
So I think a new section that deals with "cool" computer stuff that people develop in Universities and research labs is a must..
