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

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.

    We still need the system builder on this site, makes more sense to me.

    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?

    Would have checked this out if I didn't have to use Facebook.

    Tried it, then found out there wasn't much product listed on the application. Uninstalled after 5min.

    Failbook, really? Obviously THG is now hip and cool because they too use facebook...

    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.

    But can it read?
    Does it play crysis?
