Perhaps a Newbie "What should I get" sticky?

Just about every day theres a new thread by a WC newbie asking about what "kits" they should buy, or for us to suggest other seperate parts(nothing against them)

In all these threads, after the first 10 or so posts, everyone's usually always suggesting the same range of products.

Since it's so common(one of the top 5? asked questions), most of it can be pretty much answered in a single post, especially if it's stickied.

Perhaps a format like:

Good pumps: (list)
Good blocks: (list)

BAD kits!! Stay away!!: (list)
Troblesome/poor performing blocks: (list)

i agree on that one, the parts list only tells you where to go, not what to get;) , but i do think you should pick whatever apeals to you.
