High End Gaming Build - Intel Core i7-3960X / 3-Way SLI GTX Titans / NZXT H630

philip July 1, 2013

For our latest build video, we wanted to go a tad higher end. An Intel Core i7-3960X paired with 3-way SLI GTX Titans provide an absurd amount of power for gaming. For the case, NZXT kindly provided the new H630, which I can honestly say was a joy to work with. The build is mostly complete, but we're still waiting on one more sleeved power supply cable and an NZXT Sentry 2 fan controller to arrive. Once everything is finished, we'll post a more in-depth review of the system. In the meantime, check out the build video:

Adding Custom Part Prices And Marking Parts As Purchased

philip May 2, 2013

I have just rolled out new functionality that allows you to enter custom part prices, mark parts as purchased, and keep inventory of the parts you own.

When adding parts to your part list, you can customize the price information displayed by clicking on the arrow button next to the price.

Custom Part Price Button

Clicking on the custom price button pulls up the following dialog:

Custom Part Price Dialog

For each part, you can:

  • Choose the cheapest available price
  • Override to show price from a specific retailer
  • Import purchase price from your inventory
  • Enter your own purchase price manually, and optionally add it to your inventory

User inventory is a "new" feature that lets you track what parts you already own. You can view them all in a single page (similar to favorites), and can enter in purchase prices for each item. You can also view current prices, and add them to your part list directly from the inventory page. When adding from your inventory, it will automatically apply your purchase price for that part.

In addition to all of this, saved and completed builds will also retain the custom part price information. If you want to show how much you paid for your completed build instead of current prices, just edit your part list to include the custom pricing and save back into your completed build.
