And another thing is SnG's a good way to build your bankroll?
I see this is your first post, welcome to cardschat.
The first question is what kind of poker experience do you have and what is your goal in playing? Are you just a casual player wanting to have fun and you don't mind losing it? Are you actually trying to make a profit and build a bigger BR? Do you know you are a winning player? Is this your first time playing for real money
If this is your first time playing for real money, play lower stakes first. I don't care if you deposit $50,000. Until you know you can win you could easily lose a lot of money. Of course if that $1700 is just pocket change to you and you could care less if you lose it, those stakes are fine.
If you want to make a profit and know you are a winning player, you technically should have $2,000 before going up to $0.50/$1. I'd play a bit at 25c/50c, see how that goes, and start at 50c/$1 at around $2500. But unless this is your entire BR you could probably get away with doing 50c/$1 now.
