    Sounds like a good thing, bound to spawn controversy between the AMD/Intel camps & ATI/Nvidia fans.

    Just as a point of interest, how will the poducts be tested? Industry std benchies or more real world tests?

    realistically Intel camp don't have much to shout about these days and, neither do nVidia unless it's nForce related.

    As for the list names, a variation on an earlier suggestion:

    Hexus Hotties
    Hexus Potties

    Hexus Hotlist/Hotties is too similar to Hexus Hotpot, IMHO!

    Well again pushing the boat out a bit further, but what you tend to find on this board is people asking what is the best setup for say £600, £800 or £1000 quid, or best processor, best gfx card etc etc.

    I've always thought A-Lists could do with being based on budget, so instead of having two lists A and B, have a tab that allows you to configure a whole rig, or a single component? and then a budget figure.

    Two reasons, the A-list monitor may be a 19" 16ms LCD, cost £600+ most people can't afford that, but in the true meaning of that A List if thats #1 then its #1 regardless of price, So maybe it just needs to be balanced?.

    Again just a thought but hopefully might be useful?

    Hot Heavenly HeXus Hardware Hitlist. sucka.

    I think a simple bleeding edge / best bang for buck / whoops no budget

    system is ample. - people would know their budget and could pick and choose which areas were important for them.

    David, praps you could then invite companies to offer their best prices on said components, listing the best 3,4,5 prices, giving heXusers a little discount insentive to go to them, much like komplett seem to like doing on their 'support' forum here. hopefully if they were uk then newegg would have no probs.

    definatley a 'booshank' idea.

    definately a brilliant idea!

    what the uk needs is a site, that shows the best of each hardware in each "financial" category...

    - 1 - extreme hardcore gaming kit
    - 2 - mid range gear
    - 3 - budget hardware

    also, a comparison of amd and intel cpus/mobos might not be a bad idea, cos there are simply so many to choose from, and it might show what is best performance-for-pound... anyway, id be happy to help out, let me know if you want me to...


    Athlon 64 3500+ (@2.2GHz), Asus A8V Deluxe, 1Gb Corsair PC3200 (CL2)
    256Mb XFX GeForce 6800GT, Viewsonic VP201B
    SB Audigy 2 ZS, Creative Inspire TD7700
    NEC3500 (Silver), Sony DVD-ROM/CD-RW (Silver)
    WD Raptor 74Gb SATA, Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 200Gb SATA, Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 120Gb ATA133

    Question Best?

    Whoa! What constitutes the `best`, surley it is dependent on needs, requirements, compatability and so on. Also, who wants to take responsibility, for someone hanging on every word of a review and coming a cropper with their hard earned cash. Just look at any customer reviews on the likes on ebuyer, these people have paid out their cash and some are praising, and some are slating the item, why? Diff folks, diff strokes!
    I would love the idea, but I am afraid that there are so many pitfalls

    I'm sure that if the Hexus team do something like this, then they'll say the pros and cons of the item, as well as recommending different parts for different jobs. As for taking responsibility, the A-List is only a recommedation - it's up to the person buying the stuff whether they want to buy it or not.
