Hey il link you my build as I run an AMD Mini ITX gaming rig. The 860K is a great CPU for the money. here is a pic of my rig using the ML07 case from Silverstone.

OP, i just helped friends upgrade their rigs. They went with ~100Euro for 7650K APU + ~45Euro for MSI/Gigabyte A58 motherboards + 50Euro for 2133 Mhz RAM. This is far cheaper than getting a discreete GPU + whatever Intel option that guy is offering. In games like CS:GO you will be able to play with max settings (2x AA) at full HD and get 60 fps. It is more than enough as well for all MOBA games, however with the new DotA2 engine , you may have to turn down some settings. If you insist on getting a discrete GPU, get either the 750 Ti or the 270x. The 750 Ti is cheaper than its 950 "successor" for about the same performance. The 270x should be cheaper than the 750 Ti, but it runs a bit hotter and consumes more.
And no, the CPU will not bound any of those listed GPU's, you will be GPU bound in almost anything. Those GPU's will allow you to run at some medium settings most of the game at 1080p.

The only reason I recommended Intel is because he already has a GTX 660.

Why recommend 2 core CPU, when he can get quad for about the same money or cheaper...

And also quite interesting for Overclocking (but with that i have no experience).

 

There is an Fm2+ 880k coming out sometime this year but AMD haven't said when.

 

There is actually a lot of FM2+ cpu but a lot of them are OEM.

Thank you, its very hard to find a good CPU Cooler that doesn't block the PCI-Slot. Maybe the RaiJintek Pallas fits. The CPU Socket is veeery near to the PCI Slot.

@ku4eto: Thx, but i will definitely a discrete GPU, i prefer AMD's GPUs and if i Bus the Raijintek Metis, it limits the GPU's length to a maximum of 170mm, so there are not sooo many cards to choose from. Maybe the R9 380 ITX Compact from Sapphire.

But now im looking first for a good CPU Cooler that fits on the board. Maybe there are better Mainboards, too. I've read that the MSI's BIOS is Not so good for overvlocking.

Does Anyone knows if the Pallas fits on the MSI?

If there are 280 ITX variants, go for them, should be cheaper than the 380, while being the same GPU more or less.

That sounds nice, never heard about the 880k, very interesting. "This Year" ends soon, hope they will release it soon. Maybe its Price-performance ratio is as good as the 860k's one. I Think the price will be around EUR 80-90. Remains to be seen how much stronger it will be in Comparsion with the 860K.

Not found yet - the 380 ITX from Sapphire is simple a refresh of their 285 ITX Version and they only offer short GPUs at R7 360 & below.

I would recommend the Noctua LX65 or the Silverstone AR06 - low profile excellent cooling and no ram interference

I would definately go for the R9 380 ITX - it is better to get the 1.2 Tonga Arch it has a fuller feature set 4gb colour compression and better TDP and power usage which is useful for mITX builds
