DO NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING OR TAX IN YOUR FINAL BUILD PRICE. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO READ AND FOLLOW ALL OF THE RULES IN EACH THREAD OR YOUR BUILD WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

Looking to stuff your stockings with a free game? Well look no further! For this special holiday edition of Tom's Hardware Best Builds we're asking you to come up with the best builds in each using Black Friday and Cyber Week exclusive deals.To sweeten the deal we'll be giving away 1 randomly selected Steam Game to each member who makes at least one submission, while supplies last. Want a free game? Make a qualifying submission and I'll shoot you a PM for your Steam account information. These threads will be open until Tuesday, November 29th, so be sure to submit your Best Builds by then.

Also, be sure to sign up for our Purch Perks program. Purch Perks is a new cashback program we have available for free for all Tom's Hardware members. You all will likely be most interested in our 2.25% cash back offer on all Newegg purchases. Your cash is sent to you via mail or direct deposit every 90 days, so there is very minimal effort on your end. If you're in the market for a rig or even looking upgrade one or a few components, you should definitely look into this as the cash back offers can stack with any other super sales or Black Friday specials. Take a look.

This thread is for the Black Friday Console Killer Build for $500. What is the best m-ITX configuration you can come up with at the $500 price point? This configuration must include one USB gamepad.

Here are the ground rules:


  • ■Do not go over budget.
    ■Use only Amazon OR Newegg to source parts.
    ■For this special edition you may include coupons, rebates, bundles or any other limited-time offers
    ■Do not include shipping or tax in your final budget.
    ■Do not include the Operating System, Monitor, Keyboard, or Mouse
    ■Do not put your forum handle in the name of your build, and avoid odd capitalization & symbols.
    Provide links to the product pages of each component — we encourage users to use PCPartPicker's System Build for speedy construction. Do not post a link to your build, but rather please be sure to export as BBCode for a quick copy/paste to the forums.
    ■All Mini-ITX builds must have WiFi.
Please be sure to format your list of components as follows:

Build Name
Good luck, and may the best builds win!
