The Tech Report have released their recommended system components for this summer, which you can check out right here.  They have maintained their previous format, offering a choice of several components at the Budget, Sweet Spot and High End levels, wrapping up with example builds.  They recommend holding off on building a budget machine for the nonce, at the time of publishing they recommended the RX 480 4GB but we have now seen the release of cards more suitable for this level of build.  The Sweet Spot is VR Ready and the High End machine remains Broadwell-E, much as with our own Hardware Leaderboard they cannot recommend moving from the reigning champ.

"In this edition of The Tech Report System Guide, we account for the choices that AMD's Radeon RX 480 and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 afford builders in the under-$300 graphics card market."

Here are some more Systems articles from around the web:

Wait...the Tech Report is still around? Thought it died with the podcast.

It's still around, but they lost most of their original employees.

I think I read from them they are planning for something in the future.

I really like the format of offering several choices for each hardware component in The Tech Report's system guides.
