    That's a pretty nice chart to have. Looks a lot like the Excel spreadsheets I put together when doing builds (though I include pretty much everything you mention above). The one thing that it is missing for me is the ability to specify a tax rate. It would be very simple to add a box at the top next to the country selection that let you specify the percentage of tax for your given country/state/province. When I do a build I want to know what exactly will have to come out of my bank account. The only other thing I calculate into the cost of the part is shipping but that's overly complex, and beyond the scope of the guide's intent I think, as it means knowing who's shipping the part, where it's going, customs fees, etc.

    Based on that "logical increments" site, my PC is in the Great range. The only real high performance stuff I have in it is the 32 GB RAM and the 512 GB SSD. The video card is a GTX 650. Time flies, my PC is two years old now. It's all good.
