Thinking of building a mini ITX PC

KilraneKilrane Sedro-Woolley, WAPosts: 255Member Uncommon

I travel a lot for work but I usually stay put in one place for a few weeks to a few months. Because of that I often used gaming laptops but I'm in serious need of an upgrade, and I've been considering a mini ITX pc instead of a laptop. I know I can get a better bang for my buck so I'm here with a build in mind and looking for critique and any suggestions.

Monitor - It will be a PITA to drag with me, at least it’s not all that often.

OS - I'm sticking with Windows 7. I have zero interest in Windows 8 at this time.

That brings my total to 1,389.91 before shipping and what not.

 

 

I don't know if maybe some of you could find a few ways I could spend that money in a better place, or if you could even save me a few bucks. I'm not really interested in spending a whole lot more and I believe I have all of the major bases covered (just uncertain on vid card fitting in the case, being that I've never built a PC this small before).

 

Thanks in advance!
