    Nifty, looks great.   EVGA is growing quite a nice lineup of parts now.
    Bit of a bummer you can't sell your EVGA-branded ram as well, but I guess that's what happens with signing exclusivity with MicroCenter. I sometimes wonder how many sales that cost EVGA - still not sure why EVGA did that when MicroCenter can still sell many other brands of memory, not just EVGA ram, AND MicroCenter won't sell the ram by online order, it's in-store only, which likely cut a good 75% of potential sales off, if not more. Newegg, Amazon etc. would have happily stocked it. Great deal for whoever the MicroCenter rep was, bet he/she got a nice bonus for getting that signed - probably couldn't believe his/her luck! lol.

    This: EXACTLY, I have a case.......I like my case......do not care for EVGA's cases. I would bundle in a heartbeat if this was the case without the case.

    Make sure you read the FINE print for this "EVGA DIY Configurator".
     

    EVGA DIY bundles consist of several components individually priced and sold as one complete bundle, assembly required. Prices are based on MSRP at the time of configuration and subject to change without notice. Additional coupons, discounts and promotions do not stack with DIY Kit discount. MIR may not apply.  Once purchased, individual components may not be returned for a refund. DIY bundles will not be refunded in whole or in part if a price change occurs after purchase.  In accordance with EVGA's Store Terms, DIY bundles may only be returned for a refund after requesting and receiving an RMA, and all individual components of the DIY bundle are returned to EVGA.
     

     
     
    One issue i noticed while messing around with this disaster. The MSRP changes on select items, after you add them to the kit. 
     
    Before adding it to kit

     
    After adding it to kit
     

     
    "eliminates the need to hunt for deals for your favorite EVGA parts".
     
    1) Not all of evga products are part of it
    2) You can't pick 2 item(s) of your choice
     
    If your favorite evga part(s) is only one or two parts, how does this eliminate the need to hunt for deals on them? You force people to select three or more evga parts (unless they pick a select GPU and Hadron hydro case).

    Not a bad deal. I did a quick run through. Total was $1,499.95 with a discount of $299.99 for a $1,199.96 total. $60 for shipping cost.

    Can we save the shipping if we pick it up at EVGA (since I'm almost literally right down the street, dontcha know)?

    If they allow this I'm going to make my order asap since i need GPU MB and PSU for my build.
    A nice solution could be have either case or MB be the third required element leaving a bit more freedom for those that already have a case but want to upgrade, maybe giving a bigger discount on the case (and clearly show this) if they want to incentive selling their cases.
     
    Still a really cool opportunity to save some bucks, much apreciated!

    The catch is, if you like all the hardware they force you to select to save $$$. Forcing people to select a case to save $$$ is the deal breaker. EVGA should of just done a pick any 2-3 items and save $$$.

    The fun part is that you can save few bucks (~30€ in my case) even if you buy the case without needing it

    I love EVGA and owned many of their products over the years. They screwed up this time and should take DIY Configurator down before their good reputation is damaged further. Forums all over the internet are getting a laugh out of this.
     
    OK, get that it only has EVGA products. I wanted to select a GTX 1070. But only 2 water cooled cards can be picked of the 14 cards that they make. It looks like they are dumping the variants that don't sell, on people that are too dumb to pick their own components. You can't select RAM. Huh? EVGA sells memory, why would they leave that out? But most heinous of all, if you can't pick a CPU, how can you claim that you made a DIY configurator?
     
    EVGA claims the main benefit to using their DIY Configurator is everything arrives in one box at the same time. Well if you still have to buy half your gear elsewhere, how does that make any sense. Last time I checked, if you order PC parts online, they try to put it in one box to save shipping costs. If you shop at many sites to find the best deals, having to wait for a few deliveries is not a great hardship.
     
    EVGA, you are better than this. Do it right or don't do it at all.

    I just checked this out. From what I see they offer every card they have in stock in the configurator. EVGA can't offer you an item they don't have in stock. Please show me a link to the forums laughing at this configurator so I can go laugh at them.

    This is exactly correct. Currently the DIY Configurator will only allow you to add parts that are in stock at that time.

    GTX 1070 are in limited supply right now, so it is not there. Once we have more stock then you will see GTX 1070 on there.

    The catch is, if you like all the hardware they force you to select to save $$$. Forcing people to select a case to save $$$ is the deal breaker. EVGA should of just done a pick any 2-3 items and save $$$.  
     



    The fun part is that you can save few bucks (~30€ in my case) even if you buy the case without needing it




    What parts did you select where you could save more than the case costs?

    Not the exact parts since some of them went out of stock and some had price increased but gives the idea 
    (i had G3 and Z270 FTW K and SC2 was 499.99€ )

    I love EVGA and owned many of their products over the years. They screwed up this time and should take DIY Configurator down before their good reputation is damaged further. Forums all over the internet are getting a laugh out of this.
     
    OK, get that it only has EVGA products. I wanted to select a GTX 1070. But only 2 water cooled cards can be picked of the 14 cards that they make. It looks like they are dumping the variants that don't sell, on people that are too dumb to pick their own components. You can't select RAM. Huh? EVGA sells memory, why would they leave that out? But most heinous of all, if you can't pick a CPU, how can you claim that you made a DIY configurator?
     
    EVGA claims the main benefit to using their DIY Configurator is everything arrives in one box at the same time. Well if you still have to buy half your gear elsewhere, how does that make any sense. Last time I checked, if you order PC parts online, they try to put it in one box to save shipping costs. If you shop at many sites to find the best deals, having to wait for a few deliveries is not a great hardship.
     
    EVGA, you are better than this. Do it right or don't do it at all.
     



    first EVGA does not make nor do they sell cpu's so would be kinda hard for them to offer one. the RAM thing is kinda perplexing but the only place that does sell it is microcenters because of some stupid agreement they made. i think saying it's for people who are "to dumb" is not fair. if you are building a ground up system this is not a bad thing, you get most of your evga parts in one shot with a discount. go check newegg or any other online store and see if you get the same discount.

    I agree with what you say afterall the can only bundle what they sell themselves (and they can't sell their own rams per agreement)
     
    On a market side note they could have chosed a different marketing direction by offering you a really discounted case (as i showed before you can even get it for free + something off the other components)  how much depending on the bundle composition, instead of making it feel like you are forced to buy a case to get the discount, making people happier...
     
     
    But who am i kidding? people would complain even for that
