If you're building or customizing your PC rig, there may be a time when you need a place to store screws. It's okay to use a small plastic bag or bowl, but even then you may lose a vital piece of the puzzle. A handy solution for PC builders is a magnetic parts tray, which holds all your much-needed parts in one place. Titan Tools' magnetic bowl (opens in new tab) is a great option that doesn't cost much, but there are a few more that might be of interest.

This stainless steel dish from Titan Tools is exactly what every PC builder needs. You'll be able to throw all your screws and other micro-parts into the dish and never lose them again, even if you somehow manage to knock it over. The price here is for the smallest size, but other shapes and sizes are available should you work with more than one machine.
EhomeA2Z Parts Tray Pack (opens in new tab)
When you need to stand out alongside your unique PC setup and workstation, EhomeA2Z has you covered with this set of four magnetic part trays. They come in yellow, red, blue, and back. This pack is also ideal should you work as part of a team and require multiple trays.
HORUSDY Parts Tray Pack (opens in new tab)
Just like EhomeA2Z, HORUSDY opted to include multiple trays as part of a set. The difference here being each tray is metallic without a colored coating. Not only do you have three trays varying in size, but they have a rubber cover to prevent damage and scratches. Simple as trays go, these will come in handy when putting together your next dream gaming rig.
A magnetic tray is an affordable tool you must add to your PC building arsenal and this example from Titan Tools (opens in new tab) is just $5 — perfect for holding all your screws and small parts.
