Black Friday Deals Tracker

philip Nov. 23, 2015

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, we've started getting word of deals. So we put together a Black Friday deal tracking page so you can keep tabs on the latest deals.


You can also cross-reference the various deals to see how they fare against overall market trends using our Trend Graphs.

Announcing PortablePicker

philip Nov. 18, 2015

Today we’re pleased to announce PortablePicker, a site for easily finding the best laptops and tablets.

PortablePicker lets you quickly filter and search for the perfect device, while also aggregating prices from dozens of retailers. Similar to PCPartPicker, you can set custom price alerts to get notified if any items matching your criteria go on sale.

We hope you find the new site useful. Please don’t hesitate to send us feedback or product addition requests on the PortablePicker forums. (Oh, and as you can guess by the name... mobile phones are on the list of things to be added very soon.)


A quick note on PortablePicker usernames:

We recognize that PCPartPicker users might want to create an account on PortablePicker with the same username. To prevent username squatting and confusion, we have reserved all PCPartPicker usernames on PortablePicker. To register your current username on PortablePicker, just register with your current PCPartPicker username and email address. This ensures that during the reservation window, no one can take your username from you. The reservation period ends 12/31/2015.

NZXT founder Johnny Hou joined us at the PCPartPicker office to show off the new Hue+ software controlled lighting controller. It's a pretty sweet add-on that lets you add configurable RGB LED strips to your build.

We're working on adding in part list support for the Hue+ here on PCPartPicker. In the meantime, you can find the Hue+ here:


$730 Office/Productivity Live Build

philip Oct. 21, 2015

Join us Thursday 2pm Central time for our weekly live stream, where we'll be putting together Jenny's office build.

After a few (rather expensive, cough) gaming and rendering systems, it's time to build a more modest system for general office and productivity software use. Jenny handles our retailer relationships, and with the move to the new office we wanted to put together a new system for her. She's not an avid gamer, so we decided to skip external graphics and go with the CPU on-board GPU chipset instead. However, we didn't want it to be a plain ugly box, so we spent a bit more for the nice Silverstone case. Here's the full part list:
