So I discovered this great website awhile back called Pc Part Picker, basically it gives you a list of all parts you've selected, their price, a link showing their features and the vendor that has the lowest price. It has a button to use BBcode so that it's viewable in the forum.

This is my build from a few months ago. As you can see it's a lot easier to read than a few of the builds posted here linking each part. The only complaint I have is that sometimes the info given for the part isn't very complete.
Definitely recommend using this for any builds being posted here.
P.S. You can also search for parts from a specific website (e.g. Newegg) if you want to buy from one place.
P.P.S. You can also save builds on the site if you create an account.
