Thanks for the sites. However, I think it is better to search Google rather than search in each of those sites for specific information. Google will try to give the most updated results, which is a benefit.
Anandtech and Tom's Hardware are still fantastic resources.
I'd like to add some others IT references:

Even if dedicated to graphics and a bit gamers oriented it's a good reference for all kind of hardware.

Windows TenForums
This forum, as name say, is dedicated to Windows 10 family.

Windows SevenForums
As above, but for Windows 7.

PC Gamer - Hardware
I know that could appear to be strange but, nowadays, gaming computer are very demanding, so this is a good reference for PC hardware, with a lot of good buying guides and extensives DIY PC assembling instruction.
