We are happy for any kind of feedback that you might have for our PC-Builder Tool (https://www.cgdirector.com/pc-builder/).

- Found a weird Build or strange pricing?
- Do some combinations not make any sense?
- Do you have some Ideas how it could be further improved (Features)?

Let us know!

Thanks! :)

I like the PC Builder Tool, it is really useful to have, I don't know how much this would take to implement but two things I think would make it better:

1) Remove the sliding price bar and let users add in their price, it can get annoying sometimes when it won't stop at the right price or even have a price range so you could set say between £1,000 - £1,300

2) Add in the option to add in your own components and then let it build a PC around it, for example, add in your own motherboard and it will build the CPU, RAM, SSD etc

I strongly agree with both of these.
For N°2 I would try to apply it, at least, for processor and GPU. After reading and talking with a some people who's trying to build their PCs I've found that many times those are the first components that they choose and then build the setup around them.

We already added the manual price input. I am not sure about the price range, as we have to tell the tool to aim for a certain price and not a range. Will it use the low-end or high-end of the range to create a build?

As for No.2 I like the idea! It's in development.

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated! :)
