ChooseMyPC Build Generator For Gaming PCs

This is a nice idea, and seemed to work correctly on the different configurations I tried. You set a build cost limit for your gaming computer project, and make a couple of additional selections, then the web page comes up with a build list complete with links to parts sources. The limited options available to guide the build many be an issue for some - it's strictly geared to a gaming PC. It looks like several sources are in play - Amazon, NewEgg, etc - and the links all worked (although there were some redirects involved). A lot of the fun of a home build is figuring out the component list, but if you need a quick and dirty list for a project, this is a good place to start.

For example, an $500 build with an optical drive is listed below in text form, sans links.
