  1. Have multiple 'types' of computers to pick from

    I'm looking to buy a new computer mostly for CAD work and some simulation, and I'd imagine that the needs are slightly different than that of a gaming computer. It'd be cool if I could select something that would change the picked computer based on the type of computer I'm trying to build

  3. Ability to remove more parts.

    A non-gaming computer probably doesn't need $400 of its total price on a video card, and someone wanting to build a NAS station probably won't need an SSD or 8 gigs of RAM..

  4. Be able to choose cpu power over gpu power

    All of the low-ish end builds use the fx 6300, when they could easily have an i5 4570 with just a slightly cheaper graphics card

  5. Allow option for removing motherboard for typing socket types.

    If you already have a capable motherboard then, it should be enough to just type what type of socket you have, so that the tool can generate appropriate CPU for your budget.

  6. Select Certain Models for GPU

    I am planning to use Linux and AMD drivers are notoriously bad. So it would have been nice if I could select the chipset maker for the GPU and possibly CPU... Yeah then again we don't want it to be too complicated right?

  7. Form factors

    I know it is not a big deal but I want to build a HTPC/Gaming/Steambox computer... So it would be nice if there was an option to get recommendations for different form factors. Micro ATX is awesome but how about ITX?

  8. Include options to specify manufacturer

    I would prefer if I could select manufacturer options. Not override the price/performance ratio, but to enable system specifications for applications such as CUDA programming (requires NVIDIA CUDA enabled GPU).

  9. Allow more in-depth customization options

    For example, allow the user to add in their preferences for processors (either Intel or AMD), GPUs (nVidia or AMD), and the option to add an SSD or not. This could help users fine-tune their builds without having to jump head first into researching and attempting to piece together a PC on their own

  11. Ability to remove parts from the list

    I'm using an ipad at the minute and it seems you cannot remove items in the list.

    For instance I already have a graphics card bought, and would like a build selected without a graphics card but I cannot do this.

    Can you add this option please?

  13. Increasing price for specific item

    For example if I want to spend more that the amount stated for a part I could increase the money spent only on that part.

    Apologies for not responding to this earlier

    Sorry, but the build generator is not designed to allow for that much in-depth customization. However a link to pcpartpicker is provided for your own adjustments to be made if you feel that your needs are different to a basic gaming build.

    Thanks,
    Mark

  14. Create different build generators for different computer usage.

    It seems the generator favors performance gaming. Placing the slider at $1800 (The price of a recent build of mine int which I bought a GTX 770) it still suggests 2-way SLI GTX 780's, but only an i5 4670K. If one were a video editor or 3-D modeler perhaps, they would benefit a lot from a faster processor, and wouldn't necessarily need that level of graphics performance.

    I suggest you have another option to choose what you will be using the computer for. Options could include gaming, 2-D graphics, 3-D graphics, or a balanced/neutral build.

    Thanks

    The build generator currently is very much aimed towards maximising gaming performance and is not aimed at people how want a build for other uses currently.

    However plans are in the works to add other build uses.

    Thanks for the feedback and I will keep supporters of this notified of any changes,

  15. Micro Center

    Just my opinion, but especially for cases Micro Center charges ridiculous shipping that can easily add $10-$20+ to the cost. For other items it isn't so bad. Unless you live near one, in which case it's fine. Possibly add an option to skip/add micro center prices. Or maybe just don't use Micro Center as a retailer for cases at least. Keep up the good work!

  16. add slider for wattage. IE id like to build a very low wattage build using i3 4130t 35w, ssd, integrated graphics.

  17. Sliders for each part

    Say if I want a better GPU, I might give it up for a worse motherboard. Basically adding sharing sort of system, one you would see on the humble bundle money dispersing system.
    Thanks!

  19. Add the option to change Graphics Card, while lowering the spec of another part.

    You would have the option to change the Graphics Card, to something more high end, then downgrading another part. i.e. Change a GTX 660 to a GTX 660 ti, then lowering a 1TB hard drive to a 0.5TB hard drive, or something along those lines.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    It is personally my opinion that mATX is a fantastic form factor for the majority of people. It offers almost equal expand-ability with no big downsides.

    However I appreciate that many people will want ATX for various reasons and so this is something I have planned for the future, possibly looking at the addition of mITX form factors too (although this will be a mammoth task with compatibility)
