    What is the PC Hound System Builder?

    The PC Hound System Builder is a tool that will allow anyone to configure a Do-It-Yourself PC build in minutes...or even seconds without leaving the PC Hound site.

    The PC Hound System Builder will ensure component compatibility. It will also supply you with up-to-date pricing at all major USA etailers, such as Newegg, Amazon, TigerDirect, NCIX, Best Buy, and B&H Photo, plus a few others and put you a click away from that etailer’s product page.
