Proposal: Hardware Recommendations

Though the term best can lead to discussion in the answers and comments, which can be a bad thing, asking a question about something such as The best $400~ (U.S.) workstation graphics card for 3D modeling. Must use under 130 watts of power and be compatible with PCIE 2.0 and this motherboard. Would be a reasonable question and most likely would not cause very much discussion.

I also feel as though the term good can cause discussion as overly biased users will argue over the best card regardless of the term used, and in addition, the meaning of good can vary from person to person.

  • I would say terms like good/better/best will be opinion-based at best, as the importance of various criteria will vary from person to person. However, linking reviews or ratings from a reputable source (for example a CNET review) should be OK.
