Project Description

I have a client that runs a small shop custom building computers and servers. They have a shopping cart system in place that allows the customer to customize their order with a large variety of options they can choose from such as CPUs, amount of RAM, motherboard, etc... there are many sites out there where you can customize a computer to be ordered so I'm sure I don't need to explain it further.

What we need, is for the form to be restrictive based on their selections. For example, if they pick a LGA1156 CPU then they should only be able to choose motherboards that can use it. I would like this coded into a CMS as a module if possible, and if you know of a module for an existing CMS such as Virtuemart, Zencart, or OSCommerce, that would be fine as well.

Another thing we would like is if each option they chose had a set wattage that was tallied up and maintained as a display at the top of the screen so that they know which power supply they need, as many customers will order a true powerhouse of a computer but put a tiny 300 watt power supply in it that simple will not handle the load. We need to keep them from doing this. Essentially each attribute option needs to have a field in the database that we can edit that shows how much wattage it uses and the cart needs to add up the wattage from all chosen options and set a minimum wattage for the power supply the customer can choose.

If this can be made to work with Zencart or with Virtuemart I would be thrilled. My max budget is $200 for this project but I would like to state that I run a small design company and we are in need of a reliable heavy programmer since most of us are more artists than programmers. In particular we need someone who is very good at PHP. So if this project works out well it may be the beginning of a business relationship since all our "employees" are freelancers paid per project.

As a final note... tons of people just copy and paste the same message on every single project without actually reading it. I am not interested in anyone who is going to do that. So if you are serious about this project, I would like you to paraphrase what needs to be done, in your own words. You don't have to go into detail... but let me know that you read it by actually telling ME what the project is in your PMB. Also, please do not bid without first talking to me on the PMB. I find it ridiculous when a programmer assumes they know exactly how long something will take and how much they will charge without even asking for any details such as just how many attribute options we have. It is unprofessional and bids placed without a discussion with me will be ignored.
