$5000 M-ITX Build Recommendations?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This build is going to be for me, and I have a budget of $5000 USD. The PC is mostly going to be used for gaming and moderate video editing with Adobe After Effects. I prefer a CaseLabs case, and I do not need a monitor or peripherals.

Idk. I might do a build log if I have enough time. I am currently traveling a LOT lately, and I haven't had time to post on the forum.

Yes, I absolutely know that, but *if* I do decide to upgrade my motherboard and do decide to go SLI/CFx, I wont have to buy a new PSU.

$214 of 2x8gb of 1866? O.o wth happened to ram prices? Also for PSU, you really would only need like half that output.

True but you would need a new case, or maybe ALOT of modding. Also if your already thinking about upgrading just go with mATX or ATX.

Oh, yes. I know I'll need a new case. I dont think you can even mod an ATX/XL-ATX motherboard into the S3. tongue.gif
