  2. Add the option to remove case/psu and refactor remaining parts

    Many of us will be replacing old parts with a new part group but can often reuse the case/psu in the new build freeing up money for other part upgrades.

  3. You site doesn't work for me at all

    I try to use your site, but I can't modify many of the options because a message appears over everything:

    There are a lot of valuable resources but these can be overwhelming. ChooseMyPC aims to simplify things by providing a parts list to start you off, which can then be customised to your particular needs

  5. Recommend dual-channel memory

    It's popular to say "hurr durr only 5% difference in benchmarks" but the reality is that running with a single memory channel can really create a bottleneck, especially on the AMD FX CPUs you're recommending, which have a very weak memory controller.

    You're foolishly doing something for no reason which can cause stutters (and thus provably does impact minimum framerates in games) and sap performance from streaming applications which don't use the GPU (CPU-based video encoding, which is still preferable due to higher quality than GPU-based encoders.)

    Why not avoid it? 2x4GB is not significantly more expensive. It's pointless, foolish,…

    I will always attempt to recommend dual channel RAM when it is not a significant amount less than dual channel, however I believe you are overstating the benefits.

    Granted it could make a difference in some cases but it is unlikely to make much of a difference at all in terms of gaming performance which is what choosemypc aims to maximise.

    That being said I believe the crucial has come off sale and will shortly be replaced by a better option within the build generator.

  7. Option of Choosing between dual or single GFX card solutions

    I've found from past experience I'm not a lover of the struggles of dual graphics solutions, it caused more pain than gain. Personally I think you should provide an alternative single card solution too when dual graphics cards are suggested.

  8. Pentium's + low end graphics cards

    So, the cheapest build I could get from this site was a $460 A8 APU build. Instead of an APU at a low budget, try to use an Intel Pentium + something like a HD 6670. It will perform a lot better than an APU build. I managed to get a $415 pentium + HD 6670 build while ChooseMyPC went with an A8 apu with 8GB of RAM. However, you can go a lot lower with an A8 APU with 4GB RAM and a low end motherboard, but it doesn't seem like this site supports low end motherboards and prefers…

  10. Pricing Accuracy

    I was seeing parts selected which were out of stock at the selected prices, and some where the price was more than $30 below the lowest pcpartpicker price. The generator should be able to keep up with current availability and prices better.

  12. Have an option to add SSD

    I really want to see builds without an SSD, as I don't think they are completely necessary. So you could add the option next to the Include Windows button.

    Hello!

    SSDs can actually already be removed from builds by clicking the pencil icon next to the already added SSD. The build generator will automatically allocate the funds to other areas of the build.

    However I would strongly encourage the purchase of an SSD from my personal experience even for a performance focused gaming build as the difference in everyday speed is huge and undeniable. Just something to consider.

    Thanks for your interest and feedback,
    Mark

    Check troubleshooting guides online, but my first suspicions would be:

    1) Cabling, this is almost certain to be the issue. Something either not plugged in like 4/8pin CPU power or something misplaced like your front panel header connections shorting

    2) Not using motherboard standoffs causing the motherboard to short (less likely)

    They’re always the first things to check! :)

  15. Allow for AMD processors and GPU cards

    Only seems to pick nvidia GPU canrd and intel processors
    Allow picking AMD GPU and processors. VERY helpful esp when price is an issue

    Hey,

    Sorry for the late response on this. Although it may seem that only NVidia and Intel products are recommended at certain price points due to their superior bang for buck for the money this is not the case. If an Intel CPU and AMD graphics card are good together they will be recommended like anything else.

    Thanks,
    Mark

  16. fix the build page

    this website is broken. Clicking build only shows the build for 5 seconds and everything disappears except the buttons at the top.

    Thought it was my browser so i tried another with no add-ons and same thing.

  18. Error, accidently wrote what you meant as 1150 as 1155

    On http://choosemypc.net/buildguide/ under the intel motherboards part of it you listed the LGA1150 socket motherboards under what you typed "On 1155 the relevant chipsets are:"
    It is a simple mistake yet quite a big one.

  19. check list

    I think it would be fantastic if you had check boxes next to the components if you already own them. For instance: I already have a case and hard drive. Perhaps even a search function to find my hardware so that a list of compatible components within my budget could be generated. Just a couple of thoughts. Great site.

  20. Option for 1 or 2 video cards (or 3)

    I put in a high price point and it automatically suggested 2x video cards. I'm envisioning a setup with just one. The site is beautifully elegant already (few decisions yet solid outcome), but perhaps you could find a way to add a discrete button to push for 1, 2 or 3 cards. Also, I'd appreciate a monitor peripheral button as well (like the operating system one). Great stuff.
