edited March 2023 in Past Contests

BYO month is the perfect time to build a new PC or upgrade your current rig. We've got stellar deals, CPU bundles with free RAM and motherboards, and build guides galore, all designed to make it as easy and inexpensive as possible to get up and running with the latest and greatest parts. And now we want to give one lucky Community member a $500 Micro Center Gift Card to really get a headstart on their newest build!

Entering to win is easy - just head over to our PC Part Picker, fill out your dream PC (but be sure to include a case, CPU, and motherboard!), and then post your build below.
