About this app

BuildCores captures the essence of the desktop PC's flexibility through mix and matching endless combinations of PC parts. As the most complete desktop part picker on Android, BuildCores features CPUs, GPUs, motherboards, cases, coolers, and much more! Each part has detailed specifications and compatibility warnings, too. BuildCores also features Auto Build, which allows you to quickly generate PC builds at any budget with set preferences.

You can:
• View specifications of a large collection of modern PC components that is updated hourly with the latest pricing data.
• Utilize Auto Build to quickly generate PC builds from any price point.
• Pick PC parts and add them to an unlimited amount of custom builds, which are stored locally and available offline.
• See what parts are compatible with your PC build.
• View AMD and Intel CPU benchmarks results from 3DMark and Cinebench.
• View Nvidia and AMD GPU benchmarks results from 3DMark and Passmark.
• Share individual parts or entire PC builds through text or a table format designed for Reddit (great for /r/buildapc).

BuildCores also features pricing for Amazon, Newegg, and Best Buy!

All of these features are enhanced by the speed of a native application on your phone. Unlike web solutions, BuildCores is incredibly fast with nonexistent lag and light data usage. BuildCores is also completely usable when you're offline!

Note: This is an early version of BuildCores on Android. Features like custom parts, more retailers, more regions, and a bigger database will arrive in the coming updates! Also, BuildCores is entirely ad-free on Android.

BuildCores is officially supported in the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom.

Good Looking for something to do the job of pcpartpicker and this is fine. Links parts to Amazon for purchase but most of us are just trying to piece together a rig and will search for the best deals afterward. Haven't seen any issues with comparability so far. Lay out is clean and easy. One suggestion is when searching for parts that a price and larger description be displayed, or, results for specific spots load into the normal selection screen. Going through search results kinda sucks as is

Considering that at the time of this review, that the app is still in progress, I have to say that it is amazing. It's really easy to navigate, it looks very refined, and it's all organized very nicely. The only thing I would call out is the lacking database. The creator has addressed the issue though and plans to fix it in the near future. That's another thing. The creator is very interactive and actively works to imrpove the app with suggestions from the app's users.

Thanks for the review! I am trying to add as many features that you guys want. I'm also looking into ways to quickly expand the database.

This app is amazing, I really want to get into building PCs and this app is perfect for starters, I personally can't wait for more variation of parts, and filters. I also really like the 3 Pre-Built PCs, budget, sweet spot, and incredible optimum gaming high budget. I will try and make a mediocre between budget and sweet spot! Please take yourself a good break OP, don't stress yourself developing this app, so much effort put for its initial launch, it's quite a fun app, I really love computers.

I really appreciate your kind words! I'm looking into developing more build presets so beginners can have a great starting point. That and more parts + filters.
