    Just wondering what has happened to this beautiful guide, I always loved checking up on each section every month!

    Is it that not much has changed over the past 6 months or has someone left/stopped writing for bit-tech?

    Cheers

    Tim

    I mentioned this in another thread. I can't believe they'd let something like this fall to the wayside. The buyers guide was part of the reason I came to the site.

    If once a month is too much, why not just do it quarterly or, if that's too hard, every 6 months? Consistency is key.

    EDIT: Let's do one together. Correlate our own data and discuss updates.

    400-500 quid affordable all-rounder, 600-700 quid enthusiast overclock, 800-1000 quid Gaming Workhorse, 1200+ Premium Player.

    If other people are dedicated enough to check the thread and roundup opinion too, I'll add others to update it. As a starting platform I'm filling it with ASUS stuff, just because ;), but obviously we can change this as everyone wants.

    I wonder bindi, if you have any hardware personally that is not ASUS even if they do their own version :p

    Hahaha :D

    Wasn't the whole point of starting this because people wanted something now? It can be updated at any time. If you're waiting you'll wait forever for something! ;)

    N17 - yes I do. Because it was free ;)

    These would be my takes on the 400-500 and 600-700 builds.

    £400-£500

    £600-£700

    I've not included an optical in either because you just need to buy the cheapest one available unless you already have one. Oh and obviously there'll be ScanSure to come off those prices for members :D

    I'll try and do the other two in a bit, then we can discuss what we'd change and what not.

    Would be really great to see the buyers guide make a return. I loved reading that every month but then it became inconsistent :/

    Saw an SSD overview on the overclockers.co.uk forums a wee while ago, have a look there. In the Deals forum for some odd reason.

    What I would want is a buyers guide which factors in size. What if people want to go for a m-ATX build, most of these buyers guides are immediately redundant to them (me inlcuded)

    Just need to change the mobo and case, so the guides can still be helpful.
