Please keep feedback polite and constructive.
Per our user code of conduct, key resellers are not permitted. But aside from that, recommendations on part changes are a lot more effective before the purchases are made - I'd suggest our Part List Opinions Wanted forum instead for that type of feedback.
For completed builds, purchases have already been made, so suggesting what to change is typically too late.
Hinting at key resellers is not allowed.
Ok should be fixed now. Sorry about that!
Doh! That's my fault - let me fix that up real quick.
Keep it polite or don't comment on this site.
There will. Here’s a screenshot of the bike site with hover on the product thumbnails. https://i.imgur.com/QVCe07l.png

It's a layout style where the layout adjusts to the screen width.
In typical desktop widths, the site will look a lot like it does today. However the site today relies on a fixed width, so if you browse it on say an ultrawide monitor you can't really take advantage of the extra width to show more information. On the responsive site things like the product categories will expand to fill the width and show extra columns of data.
Similarly on mobile devices, the site will look a lot like it used to with the old mobile site. The layout shifts to account for a much smaller width, etc. On the old site we had a fixed mobile layout. With the responsive layout however you'll be able to see slightly different layouts whether you hold your phone in vertical versus horizontal layout, or whether you're on a tablet in vertical / horizontal, etc.
Very little. But the cycling site shares a lot of common infrastructure - product modeling, product category browsing, filtering, pictures and pricing, building part lists, etc.
We're going to roll that out after the responsive layout goes live. We had initially thought it'd go out with responsive, but now it'll be a bit delayed. We had planned to batch it all up in one update, but after disabling the mobile site we've bumped up the priority of having responsive on PCPP. To do that means only including what we have to in the initial responsive rollout, then adding the extras (like dark mode) after that.
For a short period. It'll be mobile friendly again soon - only this time with feature parity with desktop.
I don't know about gasoline, but electric might be something we put on the long term road map. Electric hub compatibility, etc. If so though it'd be a long, long ways out.
Key resellers are not permitted. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.
Our old mobile site used code and layout templates that would need to be migrated. To support the new layout we're refactoring some of the internal architecture. We could retrofit the old mobile site into that architecture, but it'd be throwaway work delaying the responsive layout (and our cycling site) when we replace it with the new layout very soon.
We recently disabled it until the responsive layout version of our site comes online: https://pcpartpicker.com/forums/topic/312357-disabling-the-mobile-version-of-the-site
On mobile the responsive site will render as if you were on a mobile site.
It's coming back, better than before.
We won't be adding additional part categories with this change. Those are usually separate from UI changes (unless the part category requires a UI change).
With the responsive layout, it won't be a desktop vs mobile site thing. It's the same site, just the layout shifts around to handle the different screen sizes. The same desktop functionality will exist on the smaller screen sizes and layouts, just in a way that conserves the screen real estate better.
We have a responsive layout coming soon that will bring some parity between the mobile, tablet, and desktop experiences. Apps give you native controls, but also introduce significant drag on future development.

You've made that comment no less than 53 times in the last 36 days - and that's with just a naive grep of your comments. Once or twice here or there is one thing, but 53 times... literally 51 times in February alone... that clearly crosses the line of feedback to spam.
It's great you like backplates. But the recommendations to get one is out of hand.
Stop spamming this comment about backplates.
Please keep feedback polite and constructive. People can build with whatever theme they want - they don't need your approval first.
If RGB makes you happy, who cares whether it is a style, fad, consensus, or whatever? Pick the style, color, shape, parts, and whatever that make you happy. If that's RGB, great! If that's monochrome, great! Enjoy it and worry less about what everyone else says about your build. You build it for you, not for them.
The ability to add two different video cards is something we plan on supporting in the future. There's a pretty decent amount of work to get there though, so it may take us a while.
If he’s a student then why would he need someone else to buy it for him as you suggested?
It doesn’t work that way. Read the licensing agreement of those versions closely. It tells you who is eligible to use that version. If you don’t have access to buy that version directly, the odds are very high that you are not covered in the license.
I was super excited about a cheap version of office when I was in college. When I read the license I realized I was no longer eligible to use it after I graduated and was no longer a student. It’s important to read the fine print.
Those licenses have restrictions on who can use them (such as current students, etc.). If you violate the license of the product, it IS piracy.
Growing up I'd take my dad's laptop over to a friend's house to play Warcraft 2 over a null modem cable. We'd play co-op against as many AI opponents as we could because the AI wasn't smart enough to destroy the walls we built.
In Warcraft 2 if I attacked my friend's unit I'd hear the "help help I'm being attacked" come from his speakers. So instead I'd send a dwarven demolition squad into his units whenever they made that perfect 7-unit C shape. Ally units didn't complain about being blown up - they'd just be gone. Cue five minutes later and my friend asked, "Hey, where'd my mages go??"
LAN parties still exist - QuakeCon, Dreamhack, etc. Lots of fun, little sleep, etc. There's something about being surrounded by other gamers - it's a unique and fun atmosphere.
Smaller scale LAN parties were (and still are) often people bringing their computers over to someone's house, all hopping on a local network, and playing whatever game was the hit then. Before cable modems, DSL, and fiber were dialup modems. Speeds anywhere from 300 bps (yes bits per second) all the way up to the fast 56 kbps modems. But when I was younger the 9600 bps was a more typical speed. Lets just say that networked FPS games at 9.6 kbs rates give you really high ping times compared to a local network - a very different experience. And probably more importantly, there's not a lot better than the across the room trash talk in front of the whole group when you fragged a friend in a humiliating way.
Bite your tongue. I lived through the days of never having a perfectly rectangular image no matter how much you adjusted it. Or color variations in the corners. Or lugging a 75lb behemoth to LAN parties, in the snow, uphill both ways. Never again...
