PC Building Simulator Early Access

Steam now offers Early Access to PC Building Simulator, a Windows game that simulates building a PC to play Windows games. This features officially licensed products, so it does provide the chance what different builds look like. You can see this in the official trailer, and the announcement has details on the game and how it evolved from a demo:
The demo, originally created by Claudiu Kiss enjoyed viral success in 2017 and was the 3rd most downloaded free Itchi.io title that that year. It has now been lovingly developed into a fully-fledged simulation to allow players to learn and build the PC of their dreams.

In PC Building Simulator, players can create their own PC empire in career mode. From simple diagnosis and repairs to bespoke, boutique creations that any gamer would love to have, the sky’s the limit. With an ever-expanding marketplace full of real-world and realistically priced components you can finally stop dreaming of that ultimate PC and get out there, construct it in Free Build mode and see how it performs.

Hardware manufacturers such as MSI, CORSAIR, COOLER MASTER, EVGA, NZXT, ARCTIC, SILVERSTONE, RAIJINTEK, TEAM GROUP LTD and more have allowed true-to-life models of their products to be included. More partners will be added throughout the game’s early access period and beyond. In addition to the hardware partners, PC Building Simulator have also teamed up with Futuremark so players can benchmark their in-game systems using a simulation of 3DMark.

This needs retro options!

Arc weld using the power switch wires on the side of the case.
Melt down a processor putting it in the wrong way.
Miss the first pair of pins on the IDE cable.
Crap out the Windows 3.1 install on the 6th floppy.

Don't forget the LBA settings DLC coming this Spring!

And everyone's old school favorite, resolving IRQ conflicts!

Won't be realistic unless 20% of the parts are defective and you have to triage post codes and then drive to the store to buy a replacement for what *might* be the problem but you won't know until you try.

DLC, buy the season pass!

Where I work, we are building a Utility Power Poll Building Simulator... for REAL!

So No... we are not running out of things to put the word "Simulator" after.

Drop screw, spill beer and short out something on the MB but it still works but you are forever worried that any crashing is related.

Or go way back, and tell your mate to put his CRT to the highest refresh possible because it's better then it blows up and smells like burnt fish.

So much fun!

I got my last PC built from parts I chose and I didn't open it for 2 years. I can see inside and there was no dust so didn't feel the need. Thing just wont quit. I'll wait till I start getting subpar frames and think about OC and screwing around then. Friends make fun of me for wasting all that money on cooling but they don't understand, this is Australia! it needs to warm the house in winter and not melt in summer. Very important.

Dammit, fucker stole my idea! I had this very same idea after playing Car Mechanic Sim 2015. Granted, it's not the most original idea but I had like 4 pages of features I'd written down for a game like this. And most of them are in this game. Maybe I can take him to court for reading my mind?

I wonder what the specs are like for this "simulation" and can you run it on the PC you've built or is that a bit too meta ..
