Disenfranchised with the voting process? Well, don’t be! In this quarter’s Best Configs refresh, you’re the one who decides the most attractive build for each of our nine unique configurations.
In the past, we’ve picked the parts for these systems ourselves. But who likes having decisions made for them? We certainly don't! During the course of the past month, readers have been submitting their own ideas for Best Configs through our Systems Forum. We’ve picked a handful of options from each list of submissions and now present them to you for a community vote.
We’ll leave the polls open for a week, after which time we’ll update the Best Configs section on Tom’s Hardware, crediting each winning forum member with his or her list of components for the world to see!
No matter which setup you pick, rest assured that taxes won’t go up and public debt won’t skyrocket as a result of stimulus you never see. To the contrary, your friends and family who visit the site will have an easily-accessible resource for picking the parts that go into their next PC—all thanks to your sage wisdom! Think of this as a bailout for enthusiasts who simply don’t have enough time to research every component out there.
And a bit of additional news: we’re listening to your feedback. Next time around, we’ll be more specific about the submission format, rebates, shipping, and combo deals at various pricing sources on the Web. Moreover, we’ll give more guidance on the purpose of various builds to make spec’ing out the Workstation config, for example, a little easier. Thanks for weighing in on the process—we appreciate the community response!
