I think we are on to something
1) I like the idea of having a "base" system or base parts AND then listing alternatives for certain parts. The alternatives being based on price/performance/generic vs. name brand/etc.
This should keep the "Number of different builds" down to a minimum AND still allow for slight variations.
As everyone will have their unique price limitation or want to spend more money on certian features or on certain performance areas....
knowing what does what... will be a GOOD Part of this list!!!
2) yes, flames, etc will occur... strick moding is A must... However, I'm a believer that people can learn
Most flames are based on valid points, except that the flamer forgets to be deplomatic in the post....they will just mentioned their opinion and curse, etc WITHOUT explaining their point.
which comes down to a) they don't have a valid point or b) they don't know who to express/explain their point....
either way, I hope they can learn
The big picture, I think this can be very helpful for TF members.
Example, my biggest problem is finding a build spec I like, but needing to change 1 or 2 parts different from what is in the existing spec.... at that point... the parts I want to add... I'm clueless on if: will they work together?
will it make since if I add xyz part in this config?
