mATX Recommendations Needed - Page 2

How about this setup? I'm not sure about the case/psu combo because it doesn't say it has a PCI-E cable

241

The 2500k is tempting but I wouldn't have any room for overclocking without a decent cooler. Also how were you able to tell that the PSU would work with the case?

Regardless of this the whole purpose of this is to get a small enough case so I can bring it to my friends house easily since it's a pain with an 800D.

There are several different standards but just look for an ATX standard PSU.

junk PSU..OEM..no gpu plug.Umm..you don't HAVE to overclock whistle.gif Most cases are designed for a standard-sized psu.For instance.. I stuffed a gs800
into an eMachines mATX case.So if you get that case..you'll need a PSU too


umm..have you read this thread?

Does it need to be mATX?

mITX can achieve everything you need in a much smaller FF.

ITX is what you're looking for.

Silverstone SG05 + 450W
$110

Foxconn/Asrock H61/67 1155 ITX
$50 - $75

i3 2100 / Pentium G680
$65 - $115

some RAM
$20 - $40

GPU and HDD excluded,
that's about $250 - $340
prices based on Microcenter and Newegg

that is all you will ever need for a LAN build for a while.

the PSU is rock solid.

the SG05 stock will house cards up to 10.4" and can be modified to fit even larger ones.

the board can be upgraded to an Ivy quad when it becomes necessary.


fits your needs perfectly.
good luck.
let us know.
happy gaming.

Thanks stealthy! If that fit's the graphics card and everything I think that looks awesome for the price!

Get a Fractal Design Arc Mini or Define Mini or the Lian Li PC-A04. I have the A04 and it's nice looking and extremely lightweight but I would recommend the Fractal case for better cable management.
