  1. 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,

        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)

      • 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.

        • Prioritizing Parts

          As a semi-advanced feature, it would be nice to be able to have some more buttons (like the OC or not buttons) that would prioritize/weight different components. "I only play games", "I play some games", "I never play games"... maybe a follow-up to each of those: If you select "I only play games", ask: "What type of game(s)?" with a few check-all-that-apply options: FPS, MMO, Simulators

          • Generate only a list of selected parts

            You don't always want a full build, so removal of different parts would be a nice feature to have. Already have a case? Just remove it with a button.
