Since tax can vary by retailer to retailer, state to state, even street by street within a zip code, we don't automatically set tax rates. However, you can configure them in your user preferences to set what your tax rates are for various retailers. Once you do, it'll automatically be included in your price calculations.

I should have the price graph glitches fixed up very soon - hopefully this weekend. The glitches were a result from a buggy code submission of mine earlier, so I'm being doubly careful this time around to avoid messing things up again. :)

Oh, totally joking. Though if it ever did see fruition, and they had an API for it, you can bet we'd implement it. It'd be too fun not to.

When we get API access for that, you bet. :)

Thanks for letting me know - they should be removed now and the price history for those should fix up once the caches for them invalidate (in a few minutes).

That's definitely something I can incorporate in - perhaps just a warning of sorts? (but not a strict compatibility restriction)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Dissapointing Emails..."

  • 75 months ago

I wish… but the new charts went in without any (major) issues. This change was more internal infrastructure. I was refactoring code for our internal price "engine" to reduce database load. In the process, I introduced two bugs that both resulted in erroneously attributing prices of one product to another. I thought I had thoroughly tested, but I missed some critical areas… (lesson learned). I'll be fixing up the price histories, but not before I aggressively test that code...

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Dissapointing Emails..."

Aye, I apologize for that. Many price alerts got triggered by a pricing bug earlier today. The bug has been fixed and the pricing fixed, but unfortunately those emails still went out. :(

Definite bug. I have a fix going in now. :(

We don't run any ads - it's likely from something on your end. (That's pretty infuriating - I deliberately avoid running ads on this site for a reason. What VPN/Proxy are you using so that I can investigate further?)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Out of stock detection"

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

That's definitely something we're looking into. Accuracy is a tricky thing here - not all retailers provide the same level of latency that we can get from, say, Amazon. There's a chance that for some retailers our stock status may be delayed by an hour or two.

Given that the motherboard supports a 750K and also supports 100W TDP CPUs, I'm pretty sure you'll be fine.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Do they raise the price of Items when you add them to your parts list?"

  • 75 months ago
  • 2 points

Right now we don't share user or part usage data with retailers, so I'd say that those effects are likely coincidental. Now, it may be because you're picking popular items that happen to change price frequently. (I'm working a revised part price history chart that shows all retailer prices - some parts are really interesting the back and forth that goes on between retailers.)

Absolutely report things when you see them and we'll take care of it. Under the description for completed builds is a report link. Also, every comment has a report link as well. We see all the reports and have a zero tolerance policy for both ripping off other builds and harassment / trolling.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Voltage Something Uncompatible Help?"

You should be fine. The warning is there because Intel did publish a recommended max voltage - but many, many people still run 1.6V RAM without issue.

I've got something in the pipeline that will fit perfect for this use case. We didn't want to push it live right before Black Friday and accidentally break things, so hopefully we can get it in between now and Christmas.

Definitely something on the roadmap. We're also planning on adding in full crossfire support (ie ability to mix some but not all chipsets - it doesn't always have to be the exact same)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "cpu problems"

  • 76 months ago
  • 3 points

most likely you have an AMD socket motherboard already in your part list. By default, the parts will be restricted to what is compatible with what you've already picked out. There's a toggle at the top of every part category list that lets you turn off the compatibility guide if you want to as well.

Comment reply on Blog Post "Micro Center Bundle Support Added"

  • 76 months ago
  • 1 point

Since the bundle deals are in-store only, they only show up if you have entered a zip code in your merchant preferences that is within a specified radius of a Micro Center location. That's to prevent those bundle deals from showing up for the 80% of the US that doesn't have nearby access to a Micro Center location. (We do the same thing for price calculations on in-store only part deals as we'll, like their CPU deals.)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What is up with the AMD 9xxx series?"

  • 76 months ago
  • 1 point

The issue with the 9xxx series is the high TDP - many of the motherboards that match it socket-wise may not be able to handle the TDP (200+W). We're working to get the compatibility verified for the matching motherboards, but it's taking a bit of time. I hope to have it in very soon though.

That's something we're definitely looking into. I don't have any guarantees at this point, but it's on our radar for sure.

Totally understand. I've sent you an email with some possible details on how we can help with this particular situation. (If you haven't received it yet, might check your spam folder. Turns out having the site registration confirmation emails come from my email address was not such a good idea - sometimes my emails get spam filtered now.)

Crutchfield has a pretty good configurator for determining what stereos and speakers will fit in your car:

Car stereos are something on our radar, and certainly something I'm interested in looking at. Many years ago I worked as a car stereo and alarm installer, and it still holds a dear place in my heart. :)

Hi Jon,

Unfortunately the issues you ran into are not things we are able to check/verify automatically at the moment. Please look for an email from me though to see how we can help.

Philip

Comment reply on Blog Post "Micro Center Bundle Support Added"

  • 76 months ago

We actually list quite a few combo deals now - Newegg, Micro Center, Superbiiz, and NCIX. We're at a point were we had to make it retailer neutral (we started initially only listing Newegg), and there's enough of them that we can't really do icons for each.

On the prime being another column - it's a hassle? (Could you elaborate?) We've had a ton of prime requests, with many people wanting to be able to see which items are prime eligible. The extra column was a way to quickly show that.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "incorrect shipping"

The amount is correct - OutletPC offers free shipping for offers over $99. (Unless they changed that policy recently and I didn't hear about it.)

Ah, I can see how that would be pretty frustrating. We definitely don't want to be triggering that. Can you link to the video card it's erroneously matching?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Amazon Prime price preference option on parts with Amazon listings?"

  • 76 months ago
  • 1 point

The $309.99 price is valid, but there's a bug there. It's available from Amazon.com at that price (in the buy box on the right), but is out of stock.

On rebates, that's definitely something we're looking into. Their API does not provide rebate information, so we're working to find an alternate route.

Oooh…

Now, I don't want to spill any beans or anything, but you should check back tomorrow morning/afternoon. We may just be turning on functionality somewhat like that...

You might have an ATX case already picked out in your part list? If so, it's probably excluding those by the compatibility filter. Try this link (which has the compatibility filter disabled):
