Mini-ITX build Help! $1000 build

post #1 of 113
Thread Starter 
Hi am thinking of building a pc for my room that would handle most games on high for preferablly less than $1000.

I live in Australia and main websites/stores I will be purchasing from are

msy technologys & pccasegear.com

So far this is what I have put together for what I want to purchase:

Corsair TX-750 ATX - $148

Intel Core i5 4670K - $269

ASRock Z87E-ITX Mini ITX Motherboard - $189

Samsung 840 Pro 120gb ssd - $109

Corsair Vengeance Pro 2x4gb 1600mhz - $95

BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX Case Warrior - $89

ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II OC 2GB - $339

Os - UBUNTU for now.

What do you guy's think ?

Also could I connect this computer up to a TV ?

mY TV has HDMI and usb ports on the back.

Thanks in advance smile.gif

a not very "mini" itx build....

have you even checked if the corsair TX 750 would fit? no idea what games you can play on ubuntu other then the limited valve and indie library on steam

TX750V2 will fit,but you should check out Node 304 for sure.

Thanks, I know it may not be that small for an itx but smaller than what I already have for sure !

Also, I will not get ubuntu then and I will save for win 7

Thanks smile.gif

any other suggestions ?

H87m is cheaper (you can't overclock anyway)

Hey, thanks.

What do you mean you cant over clock anyway ?

I don't really want to over clock anyway, lol. but just curious why not ?

...your listed items come to $1238....made a 'wishlist' on PCCG for you (link) that comes in at $1129 by a couple of smaller changes;

1) cheaper 760
2) single 8gb stick of ram same MHz though lower timings - single 8gb stick means u can stick another in when u get a chance!
3) cheaper PSU as u don't need 750!

Thanks !! +REP

thanks for the changes made, makes my decisions so much easier smile.gif

Do you know if that psu will fit in the case ? I think it should but just wondering ?

I had a prodigy and had an AX650 with in there which is also 160mm and the main problem I had was the connections with the modular cables...this psu isn't modular so it will fit without any problems biggrin.gif
