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

There are plenty of guides out there on how to build a PC, but if you’d rather someone else handle the assembly for you, the decision becomes which prebuilt outfit to go with. That has traditionally meant the likes of Dell or Maingear, or any number of others (Falcon Northwest, iBuyPower, and the list goes on). But now you can have Newegg put your system together itself, for a modest fee, with custom parts selected from its vast catalog.

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