Quoting Supergroverohp, reply 6Recommending a 300-500 router for home use is ludicrous, I understand what you are trying to say but stop and think most ppl spend from 300-1000 on a home system,
I spent "300-500" on a PSU.
I spent "300-500" on a UPS.
I spent "300-500" on a monitor.
I spent "300-500" on a GPU.
I spent "300-500" on a CPU.
There's a trend...none of which is "ludicrous"....
Agreed IF there is a need, does the average userall this? No the average user surfs the net , reads FB and emails, does some light gaming and utube or streaming, these are the facts. Sure there are user that use more or less but on average.
do you need a 500 PSU? No you dont. And personally I would love to see some specs and reviews on a500 bones PSU.
Do you NEED a 500 dollar UPS? No There are plenty of decient APC for a avarage home system runs half that at best.
Do you NEED a 500 monitor? Again while it is nice No you do not need to spend 500 on a monitor
Do you NEED to spend 500 on a GPU? Again no since we are taling avarage I feel pretty safe to say most ppl do not spend 500 on a GFX card.
Do you NEED to spend 500 on a CPU? Again no
Personally I feel this thread was for the average user, not what some would call a power user, ect, ect but for average users, do average users need all this? Again NO, Does the average user need a 500 router? Again No, you dont try and sell a Sports car to a family of 5, you sell them something they can use that isnt going to break the bank.
And TBH I break almost all your criteria Jafo so I have no problem with spending cash on a system, just that most wont or will have no need.
