PCPartPicker offers a system to help you keep track of and buy all the parts you need to build your PC. Their database is broad, but what if you want a component that they do not have?
There is not any guide out there that tells you how to add custom parts on PCPartPicker.
Worry not! You have come to the right place.
Read on to get the step-by-step know-how by team Digitalne.tv !
How To Add Custom Parts On PCPartPicker
Step 1: Login/Register
The first step to adding custom parts is logging into your PCPartPicker account. If it is your first time on the website, register and activate your account according to their instructions.
You can only see the Custom Part function when you are logged in. So, make sure you perfectly finish the step.
Step 2: Part URL or Manually Create Part
After logging in, go to the System Builder tap on the menu bar. You are going to see a list of components for building your PC.
At the end of this list, you can see the Add Custom Parts button.
If you click the button, two options will appear in front of your eyes: Create Part by Entering the Part’s URL or Manually Create Part.
Create Part by Entering the URL
This option is straightforward. Copy and paste the link of your selected component into PCPartPicker and click Create Part.
PCPartPicker will automatically add it to your part list (and their database) with the lowest price selected.
Manually Create Part
What if you want to buy second-hand components from independent vendors? How would you keep track of all these different parts?
The Manually Create Part function allows you to log information on any part you wish.
Click the Manually Create Part button. Then, you can fill in the name, type, and price of the Part. This way, you can easily track all the parts you have purchased or want to purchase and know how much you would need to spend.
PCPartPicker not only acts as a marketplace but also as an inventory. Although you cannot purchase more obscure components with no official retail link on their website, using it as an inventory or shopping list is always possible.
Step 3: Set Custom Price
Once you put in your Custom Part, you can adjust your price setting. PCPartPicker will provide you with a list of different merchants that carry the same products so that you can make a comparison.
You can choose the lowest price or to buy from a specific merchant.
And that is it!
After adding all your custom parts and select your desired price, you are all set to buy everything you need to build your PC.
Figuring out what components you need to build your PC is complicated, but it does not have to be. Now that we do believe you know how to add custom parts on PCPartPicker, don’t you?
With this system in your hand, you can keep all parts organized and be ready to build your PC however you like. Good luck!
