Newegg will now build a gaming PC with your choice of parts for $99

There are plenty of guides on how to build a computer, but if you’d rather have someone else do the assembly for you, the decision becomes the pre-built outfit you have to go with. This has traditionally meant the likes of Dell or Maingear, or a number of others (Falcon Northwest, iBuyPower, the list goes on). But now you can have Newegg put your system together, for a modest fee, with custom parts selected from its extensive catalog.

This is a major expansion of Newegg’s ‘PC Builder’ tool that was launched in beta last year. The tool is designed to guide DIY builders through the component selection process, by offering compatible parts along the way. For example, if you choose an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X for your processor, the Motherboard section will only display the SKUs you can actually use with it, making it impossible to inadvertently select an incompatible part (like, say, an Intel Z590 motherboard).
