    Much needed redesign of a site that is without doubt a cornerstone of the PC building community.

    Funny - this was posted on reddit yesterday as well.

    PEOPLE HATED IT.

    Everyone (non-designers) thought there was too much empty space, and hated having to scroll and click around to see things that used to just be there ready to view.

    I definitely find this to be a HUGE improvement in terms of UI. Having used PCPartpicker to build my own PC last year, I definitely can see why some people were irritated by some of the changes. You do have to click to see things that should be visible for the sake of minimalism (going through my saved parts list - you have to click each one to see, and it does't even show you the price history for the overall build like it used to). There are also a lot of improvements in the UX department too - such as the build guides and browsing individual parts.

    So all in all - beautiful UI, but the UX could use some tweaks.

      Great points Eric. We're working on a list of to-dos based on everyones feedback, mostly to do with improving the UX and clarity of the content.

        Glad to hear that you guys are being so proactive with the feedback from the community.

        PC Part Picker is such a valuable tool - I am glad to see that it is continuing to grow.

    The mobile site does not do it justice! The mobile site isn't the most exciting but it's definitely useable. The desktop site pretty gosh darn impressive.

    This makes other PC hardware sites look really dated.

    Ow my, this is what I needed this weekend when I tried to scour multiple sites for different pc parts for my new gaming rig! Sadly it's not supported in my country, which is a big shame for a website/community this good.

    Never really used PCPP as I prefer Logical Increments which I think is more informative, even if it's kinda ugly in comparison to this!

    That aside, this is a lovely design and the animations are very pleasing, IMO. One of those sites that I refresh at least once more than I need to just to watch the animations.

    Nice! I was wondering if they'd redesign anytime soon. Looking forward to using it!
