This thread reminded me of an old idea I had of starting a forum designed soley for FAQs.
Basically, only mods/admins could start the threads, but anyone could reply to them. I.e. If a mod starts the question, Abit KT7 or Asus K7V people could discuss the benefits behind both.
It would require some degree of effort on behalf of the mods, but would make it much easier for "newbies" to find the answers to the questions that so many of them ask.
The theory behind it is that mods scout about for topics which seem to be asked over and over again, and post a topic starter- only mods can do this, and then anyone is free to discuss and reach logical answers.
Just a Thought,
Real experts use keyboards for windows and mice for quake.
sounds like a good idea to me,
AMD Duron 750MHz @ 1GHz (1000MHz) (266MHz DDR FSB)
ASUS A7V Motherboard (somehow does 266MHz FSB)
256MB PC133 Hyundai SDRAM
ASUS V7100 (32MB nVidia GeForce2 MX)
Creative SB PCI128 Digital Sound Card
IBM 15GB 7200rpm HDD
Iomega ZIP Drive
Mat****a CD-R CW7582
and the rest...

The other idea given by Crane was also very good. An area for members to vote for the best hardware in different categories according to them. Like best highend cpu, best value cpu... etc... then, the newbies could just go where they want, ans see what the "elders" have to say on the subject.
AMD K6-2 550MHz
Quantum LCT 10 10.0Gb
ATI Radeon 64Meg VIVO
SB-Live Value (CT4830)
