Build a gaming PC in a game with PC Building Simulator

Ever fancied building your own PC, but have been too scared to break actual real-life parts and/or electrocute yourself? Building your own gaming rig is a good idea, but PC Building Simulator lets you experiment within the safety of a videogame ahead of the real thing. 

Set for Early Access in March, here's PC Building Simulator's Steam blurb:

Build and grow your very own computer repair enterprise as you learn to diagnose, fix and build PCs. With real-world licensed components, realistic pricing plus comprehensive hardware and software simulation you can plan and bring your ultimate PC to life.
