I'm recently started to design a high-end desktop from scratch. Since I haven't done anything like that in a long time, I've been scouring this site for relevant question.
The thing is, the good questions are buried beneath the rest. And I got the distinct feeling I'm actually looking for meta questions, like this one.
I'm not in a hurry. The parts won't be ordered till December. But I suspect many of the questions I have, have already been answered. I simply can't find them. I vaguely recall I've seen some very good questions in the past though, so there must be something out here.
What are the canonical questions, meta or not, about picking the right parts for a desktop?
This is a list question. Partial answers are more than welcome.
