You need this keyboard/mouse instead ;)

I have the keyboard and it really does look that good. Don't know about the mouse.

But nice work.

The filter would have to, and I believe already does, assume a single display. It probably would have to be a box check with anything at or above what you check being included due to how Hz complicates things. Again, I'll reference the Newegg filter. They can do it, why can't pcpartpicker?

And yes I agree you could also separate the series. I believe there was another topic made by someone else that included that suggestion. I was just trying to put them all in one place.

Yes the Max resolution filter would have to be secondary to the connectors filter if you have some selected. However, as it is now I have to select one connector at a time because if I select both HDMI and display port it's going to look for a card that has both not either. I just want a card that can output 4k at 60hz, I don't care which connector. Let the filter select all cards that allow that and then I can look at connectors. That's how the resolution filter works on the Newegg website. Plus that doesn't take care of the HDMI 1.x or 2.0.

Also DirectX is a major one that you did not mention. Admittedly most cards are 11 and probably 12 upgradable, but there's still a lot of cards on the list that are just 10.

Honestly the new mobile version of the website works about as well, if not better, than most apps. I mean what is an app for a website besides a self contained browser. Keeping the focus on the mobile website means 1) complete OS compatibility 2) no extra work on apps and therefore 3) more focus on the website and better finished product for desktop AND mobile PCPartPicker versions.

Adding an app that has no additional options and no better performance than the mobile website already has is....kind of dumb.

Agreed. A lot of the GPU parameters could use work actually...

Oh I agree, which is why I went Intel in the list I linked, but just saying if the build wasn't worried about future upgrades to start with and just with the price and performance right NOW, they could have done better for the same or less with AMD. I'm not really convinced with the Z97 being necessary over Z87, no one has yet to explain to me what the point was besides new products to coincide with the new line of Intel processors..

Just confused by the objective of this build. A miniATX? The point of a budget gaming build isn't just to be cheap now but to be upgradable for future savings too. The size (and cost) of the case as well as the PSU fail in that regard. Most of the money spent here is the CPU which is an Intel and then you go with a AMD GPU. You'd get better overall gaming performance for your money with a AMD CPU/GPU if that's the point. Even still you could do better overall than this with an Intel/NVidia. Just seems like a lot of contradictions. Here's what you could build instead of this that's even better. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/zixiss/saved/#savedbuild_1227321 Got the GTX770 and CSM750 PSU already on sale but you can find those sales again if you are patient or you can spend $20-30 more now and you're still at $1000. Also lots of options on cases, I splurged a bit for looks in this build but you can get something as good for $50-70.
