Futuremark Corporation has announced a free online based tool utilizing its 3DMark PC benchmark scoring system. The Gigabyte System Builder provides pre-purchase 3DMark performance-based information on a wide range of Gigiabyte motherboard and VGA products allowing users to decide ahead of time the type of PC or gaming system they would like to build.

Users select from drop down menus for the latest core system components including CPU, motherboard, and video graphics cards. The Gigabyte System Builder automatically calculates total MSRP costs and 3DMark performance of the user’s selected hardware build, enabling them to see the cost and performance of their ideal system before purchasing any hardware. Furthermore, the GIGABYTE System Builder provides PC gaming software playability information powered by Futuremark’s Game-o-meter technology enabling users to see which games will play best on their proposed hardware build.

Anyone at any budget can confidently make PC purchasing decisions for any PC component combination using the latest CPU, motherboard, and graphic card technology.”
