Seeking advice on sff build

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Ok so here's the whole thing. As i live in small flat and to save a space is a big deal to me smile.gif I have nea by me standing a atx midi tower case and it takes a good chunck of my table because im not going to keep it under a table. So decided to do a small upgrade or side grade. Some of the parts im gonna use from my rig and some parts gonna be brand new (except a two 2 tb hdd's from data center i got biggrin.gif This sff build gonna be used in three directions.
First one is to look good and be silent.
Second one is to have enough power for my needs like a corel draw, illiustrator and much more .
And the last one is to play some games like DOTA 2, ME3 HL2 ( yeah im still liking that game a lot) and so on smile.gif
So heres the partlist:
1. Case gonna be this one Cooler master elite 120 advanced
2. As for a motherboard i cant decide to go with a AMD side or choose Intel that im still think that theyre cpu's are really overpriced a lot smile.gif
As for AMD i could find only one mobo here in this god damned lithuania AsRock A75 mITX
So then my cpu could be a AMD A-6 3670
Or if it would be and Intel build then my motherboard would be like this one Asus P8H61-ILXR2.0
And CPU would be something like an Intel G850
Or this one Intel G870
As for i3 or i5 lines i dont wanna pay only for a processor a one thirdth of my paycheck smile.gif Also modding is going to be made for this case.
And guys dont start to flame about thoose bs things like oh intel is forevah amd just eats it dust and so on, because im gonna ignore thoose posts. So im waiting maybe someone has something to suggest about this build and thanks a lot guys smile.gif

Will you be using a discrete graphics card? If not, then go AMD. If so, then go Intel. If going Intel, see if the newer CPUs are available to you as the G800 series are older Sandy Bridge. Look for the Pentium G2120, which is the latest Ivy Bridge.

if you are going with a H100, then get the prodigy no modding needed for that case. then again, that case is HUGE for an ITX biggrin.gif
