US-based manufacturer, NZXT famous for its PC cases and cooling solutions, just kicked off its new offering named BLD (pronounced 'build'), offering custom-built gaming PCs with a friendly approach to picking components.
NZXT claims that BLD makes it easy for people who want to have custom-made PCs with decent performance without spending exorbitant amounts or having to figure out how to assemble their own system. The new service helps customers pick out the parts for the PC, which the company will then put together. “BLD features a brand new approach for those who want a DIY (do-it-yourself) PC to play the PC games the way they without having to invest a lot of time," said Johnny Hou, founder and CEO of NZXT.
"Because we’re PC gaming enthusiasts ourselves, we know what fellow gamers need out of their systems and our recommendation engine built upon millions of gaming sessions makes this easy. Simply tell us the games you want to play and we will do the rest,” adds Hou. The company claims to have used more than 10 million hours of data from its cloud-based application named NZXT CAM PC monitoring software to help tune BLD's component selection algorithm.
The recommended rig will run the specified games at a minimum of 60 frames per second and BLD will also let the buyer know the exact frame-rate to expect from your new machine for each game picked. NZXT is putting its money on the accuracy of the frame-rate estimations. If the PC doesn’t come within 10 percent of the specified frame-rates, the buyer can return the machine free of charge. The company will ship only in the U.S. for now and are yet to comment on a release elsewhere just yet.
