PCPartPicker is now tracking prices for recent software releases across a variety of categories. We've added tracking for:

This selection joins our existing listings of operating systems.

Quick note: Games are on our roadmap. We're working on getting them added, but we don't have an ETA on them yet.

I wish they would add support for custom watercooling parts

This is great. It could be better if you have tracking and other options for water cooling. Like pumps, reservoirs and pipes along with other things need to setup a water rig.

  • 48 months ago

We'd love to add water cooling. There are a couple things we need to do to support it first. Then it's data entry - which for things like fittings is pretty daunting since there are literally thousands of variations of them in various colors, sizes, types, etc.

Okay, so are you saying that in the future theirs a possibility of offering it, or is it off the table.

  • 48 months ago

I'm saying there's a possibility. It's just a ton of work to do it the way we want to do it (properly in my opinion).

Hey, if you find it before tomorrow, feel free to announce it. :) It's ready to go but the timing didn't fit right for today.

Are you going to pull a list of games from Steam/Origin or something like that? I feel like it'd be extremely difficult to get a list that would satisfy everybody: "Hey, SuperTuxKart [an open-source ripoff of Mario Kart] isn't on the list!"

  • 48 months ago

We do want to incorporate games from multiple sources, but we think that'll take some time to get right.

Finally! A more complete build now. I can finally stop using the custom part button for now.

Is there a plan to incorporate network components like Access Points, Routers, Switches...etc in the future?

Edit: Also NAS, Raid cards

Glad to see a "backup". So many here build a sweet shiny new pc and don't think about the "what if's"........Which leads to.."I should have made a backup!" :)

  • 48 months ago

Heres an idea, For the games, can you include system requirements for games? That wiuld be great.

  • 48 months ago

You should definitely add a sd card reader to it.

  • 48 months ago

I'll add those to the TODO list.

Sweet this is actually really nice if I needed to shop for one of these; you can make sure to get a really low price!

I want lighting tracking!

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

do you have some examples of what you'd like to see?

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

NZXT, BitFenix, some other mainstream and less popular ones. I don't have much expericence with lighting so wouldn't know. It'd be handy to see it here.

I would like to see some CAD software like solidworks or NX10

  • 46 months ago

I'll see what we can do. Thanks for the feedback!

  • 46 months ago

It would be a nice feature to add a GPU cooler. I am running a Corsair H75 on my Gigabyte HD7970 Ghz with a NZXT Kraken G10 bracket, but can't add it, unless it is a custom part

For operating systems we incorporate a lot of compatibility checks and warnings. For instance different OS versions (Home vs Pro etc) have different max RAM values, so we warn if you exceed those values.

Just like Microsoft to put arbitrary limits on hardware...

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah. I was making a build with over 512 GB of RAM the other day, and it warned me that Windows is not compatible.You guys think of everything, don't you?

Seriously, I'm not joking. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pFKCxr

Stores entire OS along with some programs on RAM and files ... still has over 500 GB RAM left.

Only problem is that the RAM consumes about 700W.

Will this work with Linux by any chance? My assumption is no, due to the thousands of Distros...

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

It would be cool if they had some of the common Distros. Then the uncommon ones could be added in manually to builds via custom parts.

  • 48 months ago
  • 2 points

ie Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint(All basically the same under the hood with major/minor tweaks), Zorin, Fedora, and Elementary OS? Also Kali because pentesting is amazing and fun

Kaspersky Internet and Total Security should be in now. Adobe CC will hopefully be added soon as well.

If you think of any other suggestions for software, feel free to post them in the Part Additions forum!

They don't plan to add Linux anytime soon

  • 48 months ago

My man, Linux is free!

Been using Linux Mint Cinnamon flavor for months. :-)

It's probably the best transition for Windows users.

Sorry I missed this earlier, but I've now added the assorted variants of Vegas Pro 13 to the software listings. Prices should start filling in over the next couple hours. If you have any other suggestions for missing software, feel free to let me know or post them in the Part Additions forum.
