Google favorites

Google does a good job promoting links based on general user click-through, but it doesn't give me the option to promote the sites that I personally favor.

For instance, when I'm looking for hardware reviews, I tend to dig through,, and It would be great if I could just tell Google I was searching for pc hardware, and it would know to put results from those 3 sites at the top.

I know I can manually use the "site:" directive, but what I really want is a "sites:" directive... or even better, and a "category" dropdown which uses my personal site preferences. This would save me the time of searching sites separately, of having to dig through piles of search result rubbish, and reward me for taking the time to "bookmark" or give "thumbs up" to sites that I've personally found useful.
