First, thanks to all of the admins and mods for the valuable help. This site is a godsend!
Second, I'm thinking about building a system from scratch, and I am curious to hear the opinions that are out there. Has anyone ever posted a poll as to what components perform best when combined into one box?
In particular, I'm looking for info on: main-boards, CPU's, graphics cards, sound cards, and OS's. Suggestions for Hard Drives and optical drives would be nice as well.
I know I'm probably opening a can of worms here, but perhaps there is a consensus on a few of the components that I have mentioned above.
