Default Why not do this?

Most people have been asking for someone to build them a new computer because of new games like Age of Conan, and Call Of Duty 4.

Why not just make a sticky that tells people what the best products to get now are? I mean.. everyone keeps recommending the Q6600 or the Q6700 and the 750i or the Asus Maximus and the 8800GTS 512 (g92)...

If I were building a new computer I would love to see an updated sticky like this..

Why should people have to ask.. lets just make a post that has a computer already build for them!

Couldn't there be a sticky or something that says like:


The current recommended parts for your new build are:


Graphics Card
- Nvidia 8800GTS 512 (G92)

Processor
- Intel Q6700 Quad Core

2-way SLI Motherboard
- 750i FTW

3-way SLI Motherboard - 780i

RAM - ...

Heatsink
- ...

Computer Case - ...

Total cost on Newegg.com: $000.00

etc...

I think that would be so convenient and helpful, and it would prevent people from having to ask the same questions over and over...

Also it would include a small summary about each product and why it is the best choice for the time being.

Links to posts I have seen:

$600 pc

750i or 780i, which to choose...

Need help with my first build...

I think this is a good idea.. what do you all think?

We already got one... and carnage posted it

No new techie bothers to check our stickies.. but then again... who cares we'd have no new posts if the new guys don't check the stickies I guess

Isn't the e8500 like $280 still?

but I agree on the e7200 and maybe the e8400...

EDIT: 750i FTW is a great board.. you pick it up!!

yes, it is. it will also likely overclock to like 4.5+ with little to no problem. smmmmmmmmmmmmmokin...
i think conan will benefit from the larger (double, actually) cache of the 84/8500.

Someone who is graphically talented should slap together a nice boilerplate image with the parts list on it and host it to imageshack or photobucket. that way we can just post the image when someone asks.
