Help creating a Mini ITX Computer!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Before all, hello :D

 

My best friend and I have been playing videogames all life in consoles, I made it into PC gaming about a year ago, and finally convinced him to buy a computer to game on it, he doesn´t know anything about hardware, so I just has let him select the case, wich is in this case a Black BitFenix Prodigy, Mini ITX size.

 

He don´t want to spend more than about 500-600 euros so I have to select components very carrefully to get the best price-performance

 

Here is what I´ve looked up so far:

 

CPU: AMD A10-5800K 3.80Ghz (112 Euros)

Mobo: ASRock FM2A75M-ITX R2.0 (79 Euros) Any other options?

Case: BitFenix Prodigy Negra (67,95 Euros)

PSU:  Corsair CX500 V2 500W Builder Series 80 Plus Bronze (58 Euros) It´s enought, with about 350w of power draw from the PC

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5 (185 Euros) To be future Proff :D

RAM: Corsair Vengeance XMP PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 8GB 2x4GB CL9 (68 Euros) Don´t know if 4Gb will be enought, he won´t be using heavily the PC

DVD Recorder : 15 Euros

 

Also, please don´t post links from NewEgg as I can´t buy from there, use Amazon.es or the shop of the components i´ve listed upper there

 

NEW EDIT

 

Now going for this: 

Mobo: Asus P8H77-I = 98 Euros

CPU: Intel Core i5-3350P 3.1Ghz Box = 158 Euros

RAM: Kingston HyperX Beast DDR3 1600 PC3-12800 8GB 2X4GB CL9 = 63,95 Euros

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5 = 185 Euros

PSU: Corsair CX500 V2 500W Builder Series 80 Plus Bronze = 58 Euros

Case: BitFenix Prodigy Negra = 67,95 Euros

 

Total = 630,9 Euros

 

A bit expensier than I first planned, but will last longer than the other option

Looks good, but I've heard horror stories about Xfire and some about that mobo.
I'd personally suggest going with an I3 and a decent H77 motherboard, since you will be buying a dGPU anyway.

My friend is coming from an I3 so I want to be a REAL upgrade, an I5 or an A10 is the best option, but the I5 is pretty expensive

You can't do dual graphics with the 7870 and the APU, if you want to do that get the HD6670 instead. Also 5800k is pointless if you are getting a discrete GPU of that specification, get the Athlon 750k instead, it is exactly the same as a 5800k except it has no built in graphics and is £40-50 cheaper (I don't know how much that is in Euros sorry).

I'd get the Silverstone SG05 which comes with a 450W 80+ SFX PSU- it's an actual ITX case (10 liters compared to 26 liters of the prodigy) so it is far smaller than the Prodigy, heck if you thinking of getting a case the size of a Prodigy just get the Silverstone SG09 or SG10 (23 liters) instead, it is a Micro ATX case which is actually smaller than the Prodigy, then at least you won't be limited to only ITX motherboards in the future.
