Looking for suggestiongn for miniATX build

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am looking to build a miniATX system to run Ubuntu just for fun, because I have a lying around;

1 x AMD PhemonII X4 9550 (hd9550wcj4bgh)
2 x 2gb DDR800
1 x 600W PSU
2 x 500gb 2.5inch WDC HD
1 x DVD-RW

What's a good miniATC MB, I was looking at the Asus M4A88T-I Deluxe?

Also the case must fit an GTX 580 or HD 6970, but be as small as possible and I have no need to multiple HDs.

I would have preferred a GTX 590 or HD 6990, but their specs for both cards say my 600W power supply is not enough.

Any suggestions?

yeah that motherboard is great but gets a bit hot

small as possible for those graphic cards is silverstone sugo sg07

also the powersupply in that would be enough to run even the gtx 590 or hd6990

as said above ^
just make sure you have adequate VRM cooling and such

Wow, that motherboard barely supports the CPU - 95W.

This was my first thought.

One thing you need to know is that it uses a SLIM optical drive. Basically a notebook optical drive. You can get slim DVD burners for around $30 at Newegg. The other thing is that you need an adapter, and looks as if the case doesn't come with one. The slim SATA optical drives can use a normal SATA data cable, but the power connector is not the normal SATA power connector - it is smaller. Newegg has adapters for around $5-10.

Currently there is no AM2+ itx motherboard that sports a PCIe x16 slot.

You'll probably have to go mATX if you wanna make a system with those parts.

DOH! That's right, the CPU is AM2+ and the motherboard is AM3.

* AM3 processors work on AM2+ motherboards due to the presence of both the DDR2 and DDR3 memory controller
* AM2+ processors do not work on AM3 motherboards due to the processor's lack of a DDR3 memory controller

So I found an old GA-M61PME-S2 lying around, and has Ubuntu up and running nicely.
