Going Mini ITX

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, i Need a LanParty System built for around £250-330

Will +rep appropriately.

Location:United Kingdom

Willing to make sacrifices with older sockets and Graphics cards ect

Does not include OS, i have a technet license.

Games : CS-Go , DayZ (does not have to be highest settings) Most Steam games and occassional GW2

The reason im asking is i do not have much experience with this platform, and would like some advice on what route to go (FM2 for longevity ect)

Wifi could be an option

I have spare Harddrives (may take the 7200 RPM 2.5" outta my dell laptop) so will not need one of those unless you can squeeze in an SSD.

Preferably from scan.co.uk as i have free shipping for life.

This needs to be as PORTABLE as possible.


Cheers!

this case would be perfect for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112348
but it is for 160$ frown.gif
Other than that, go AMD APU

"May be able" to get my mates HD5770 for free (the batman car one!) so might be worth going i3?

Hi there
Im looking to get a mini-itx build for Lan party's too.
Case : http://www.scan.co.uk/products/cooler-master-elite-120-advanced-mini-itx-case-with-full-size-vga-supportupto-3x35-or-4x25-hdd-usb-3
Pros : Cheap, mini itx, supports full size Atx PSU's. supports long gpu's like 690.

Cpu, you can go for AMD APU 5800k + 6770 For hybrid crossfire. This should play most games at medium settings.
If you have enough money you can also go for something like i3+h77/b75 motherboard + 7770/7850/7870 (Tahiti LE ?)

254.35 lol

not sure about the case psu. Is says 300W, while cpu draws 100W + ram draws smt, mobo allso and HDD. But overal it should be enough. (im sceptical if it could handle OC), but damn it costs 27.47 !!
If you want more stable ground under feet, get case which can have ATX PSU and get corsait 420W builder series . But ofc that would cost more.

It's a bit over budget but you can hit your budget if you use the HDD from your laptop. thumb.gif

how does the 380 antec compare to the Corsair 430w builder series (35 on scan at the moment).

Thanks, that i3 setup should be pretty decent. +rep

if you dont mind FM2 and comfortable with the 7660D GPU then you can squeeze all that power into an antec ISK110. you cant get more portable then that. i bought mine to LAN and it worked wonderfully
