Build Calculator

Postby madcow » Tue Nov 16, 2010 4:13 pm

Perhaps this will be of use to some of you. Simple spreadsheet for planning builds. Calculates weights both high and low as well as price. Pretty thoroughly broken down by component but not to an insane level of detail.

It seems that nobody noticed that the math was off in one square, in the lighter range box the calculation was based on 435.59 grams per pound instead of the corrected 453.59 grams per pound. I've uploaded the sheet with the proper math now.
