The following are simple steps the users in this sub forum ask you to follow in order to allow us to efficiently and effectively help you.


Basic things to keep in mind when making a post:
1. Please show respect to members attempting to help you. We are paid very little(if anything) and we will try our best to build a computer within your budget.
2. Be sure you are confident in what type of computer you want in the initial post. Try not to change major details after the initial post.
3. We will try to make your money go as far as possible but we cannot always get you an enthusiast system on a entry budget. We Must Sacrifice Something!
4. Understand that we don't know everything, but many of us have years of experience. Enjoy our feedback and feel free to ask questions, they help us to accommodate your needs.
5. We are here to help you and many of us do enjoy it, however, if you are simply looking for benchmarks or general help, this is not the place.
6. Before posting, take a glance at the last few pages. Many common builds have already been assembled that may fit your needs.
7. Include your estimated time of purchase so we can choose products that are on sale. Failure to buy soon after posting may result in going over budget when checking out due to expiring offers .
