You are really lacking in the video card section....
leadtek....Gigabyte....ASUS.....and many many more quality cards...

Plus you stae TRUSTED Brands.....by whom are thye trusted..you?

There are many good quality brands out there that will work just fine that are not on your list..especially the memory list...
there are many many generic brands of memory that power many many computers and they keep working day in and day out....

Motherboards are lacking the top 2 quality brands. Tyan and SuperMicro. (Server class)

Your PSU list is missing Zippy (Server Class)

Sapphire's FAB makes all the branded by ATI cards.

And for CPUs, you're missing BIG IRON! Come one now. WhereTF is IBM?

I`d like to suggest this thread be locked die to the unadequacies of this thread!
This thread is a very crude start and really could have had more research done before attempting to give us as well as noobs who would or might take this thread as godpel not realizing in the market place of today there are actually very few if any bogus brands!!

The market place has a way of dealing through word of mouth with bogus/bad quality brands!

There was no need to start a thread to inform all the knowledgeable participants in these forums.

Trusted is in the eyes of the beholder...

I know people who have had bad experiences with brand X...yet there are others all on thes forums who would recommend brand X to everybody.....


Thus the request to lock the thread.

Have fun peeps!

Do you really want Maxtor on that list?

With 100% of the Maxtor HDs I've had (8), never making it to the warranty expiration, and with two of them lasting less than one DAY (both were refurbed warranty replacements), I'm done with them.
