How to Pick the Parts in Tom's System Builder App

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 44 comments

Make your build.

Last week we unveiled the Tom's Hardware System Builder application for Facebook users. For those trying to put together a new rig, this is an excellent too to create and customize your own unique systems from a huge library of components.

Share and compete by showing off your builds with your fellow hardware enthusiasts and check out the latest, hottest rigs around.  And best of all, you can answer that age-old question “What kind of system should I get?” by building it with a few swift clicks and sharing it right on your Facebook wall.

If you need some guidance on how to pick the components that are right for you before you start putting together your virtual build, check out the Guide to Choosing Parts thread on our forums. It’s a great refresher and one of the most viewed threads of all time here at Tom's.

Once armed with the right knowledge, you can put together your ideal configuration on Facebook here.

    No thank you. I do have a facebook account, but I use it as little as possible for anything besides getting in touch with people.

    Ugh, I hate corporations/websites trying to integrate with Facebook. Feels so phony and, honestly, what does it really do to increase business?

    Why would you require a Facebook account just to use the app? I could see that if you saving or publishing your build to other people.

    I'm done with Facebook apps. I can't tell which ones do/don't compromise my account anymore. Forget it.

    Great for Facebook users - which leaves me out. Until Facebook dedicates itself to being a secure place to share, I'm not going to partake, even if it does get me "in" with the Tomshardware staff.

    Also not a Facebook user. Why not just have an HTML5 version?

    The people have spoken. Make the app Facebook-free.

    There's a very valid reason for the hate - and therefore, quite justified.
