Default HWC hardware survey?

I tried and failed to do a poll, not enough options. I think it would be nice to do a survey, see what is being run by HWC users. Like the steam one.

what say you?

Aye! Help us mods! You're our only hope (for a large, organzied Poll)! Can we get pie-charts like steam does too?

create many threads, one for each hardware requirement, ie, one for cpus, one for vgas, one for mobos for each cpu maker, etc, etc...

I could always throw together a simple javascript applet or similar that would be in the form of a questionaire which could dump all the info someplace together.... But it would take some time (my programming skills are rusty).

And how does one propose we keep reporters honest ;)
Self reporting surveys are notorious for being potentially unreliable.
Valve has the advantage they they have software installed on your PC to validate and verify results ;)

An good concept though, it would be very interesting to have a page which shows the different hardware that is being run on the forums

We could validate by using CPU-z screenshots?
