    Yo my boys.
    I recently took a look at the different sites providing custom built PC systems. What shocked me is, that almost all of these sites are quite complicated for the beginner.
    They have bad layouts and confusing ways of assembling your list of items. I found quite a lot of sites, and this was the case in 90% of them. I was wondering if there's any money in this niche, as it might not be as lucrative as maybe 5 years ago.. But still?

    I don't have the time or the money to start this, so I thought others might be interested. I found a few of these sites had some kind of dropshipping/affiliate program - most being banners - but others had seemingly legit dropshipping deals too.

    Here's a quick sketch I did just to get a feel for it:

    Bear in mind that there's more components required and stuff like accessories to be added to the end of the purchase. But it's the basic design idea I think will attract more people than the other sites I was looking at. The presets should be easily done too, as most games have these posted even before launch. It's just a matter of knowing the requirements and then use a simple function to check whether or not these are met.

    I hope someone can make some money from this. If you have the right contacts for dropshipping and coding the shop I'm sure you could do okay with this.

    What's your input on this? :)

    EDIT: Oh. And most modern motherboards, CPUs and GPUs are compatible with one another these days, so that shouldn't be a problem.

    Good idea but you would need to invest a lot of time and money to get it off the ground.
    Nice sketch by the way.

    Thanks mate.
    Yeah, it will take time and money to get just right. But I'm sure it can be quite profitable if done properly.
