What is HardwarePick?

HardwarePick is a product specification database for PC builders, both novice and professional, to quickly and comprehensively compare PC components, including:

  • Motherboards
  • Graphics Cards
  • PC Cases
  • CPUs
  • CPU Coolers
  • Monitors (coming very soon)
  • External GPUs (eGPUs)

Instead of compiling your own in-depth research on PC component specifications (that usually involves hours of research, many 'tabs' on your browser and countless google searches), we have done most of the hard work for you. 

 

We have tried to create simple yet comprehensive way to compare specifications of computer parts with custom-built PC component databases.

 

 

Why have we built HardwarePick? 

Comparing computer part specifications is not a simple process - usually involving hours of research with all the information usually needed to make an informed decision scattered around the web - with typical resources found on reddit, forums and official manufacturer pages. To find the exact/in-deth specifications of models involves many browser tabs open and hours of research to find exactly what you're looking for, whether it be motherboard VRM information, graphics card dimensions or PC case volumes. 

There should be no reason for why computer part comparisons should be so tedious and time-consuming, so last year we decided to simplify this process by building a database tool for PC builders, both novice and professional, to quickly and comprehensively compare PC components. 

Current popular PC building websites like PCPartPicker provide a basic overview of each part until further selected to view. Excelling in building the PC on their site the user must go to product pages to find more specific features of individual parts. At HardwarePick we aim to be that immediate location for in-depth information or to compare products and simply their hardware values.

We strive to be the other “tab” when joined with PC building sites (such as PCPartPicker); instead of multiple manufacturers specs sheets open, only one page is needed via HardwarePick.

PC Builders are always looking for a better source for building their PC and comparing parts, and we hope to incrementally make the whole process a little bit easier and less time-consuming.

The response so far..

In July 2018, we shared our database tool with Reddit’s biggest PC building subreddit with over 1 million subscribers, /r/buildapc, and were overwhelmed with the response - reaching number one on the subreddit with >1600 upvotes, 65k views and 96% upvote rating. We further developed the site based on the welcome constructive feedback from other Redditors - to strive to make it as user friendly and useful for comparing PC parts.

Some of the positive feedback from the reddit post:

Always open to feedback and feature suggestions

We think the best way to grow and develop HardwarePick further is by listening to the community. We have made this our priority since receiving feedback from our Reddit post, and will continue to do so. 

If you have an idea on how to further the use of HardwarePick and help grow this tool, we would love to hear from you.

Please visit our contact page here if you want to get in touch with us, and we'll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.


Our Team

We are a small team here at HardwarePick trying to offer the best possible database for comparing PC part and peripheral specifications. If you have any questions or perhaps are interested in helping in this project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
