First, I can't find the sample systems that used to be on this site. It listed three groups of components for different level users.
I spent hours putting together my dream computer at Newegg.com and now only because one person mentioned it in a review I find out that my case won’t support my motherboard because of 4 extra pins on the powersupply connector. How can you find out something like this before you place the order. It’s not mentioned anywhere in the specs.
Whew, Thanks. Now onto first part of question. I found a page one day that listed components for a complete computer system: a basic system, a mid-level system and a gamer system. Periodically it was updated as different components were tested so one day it might have xyz video card and the next month it might have a different but better video card.
