Hey there, I'm seeing if a small PC build is right for me and just need some ideas on hardware for the machine. Portability is pretty important for me on this one, so I was thinking some kind of small LAN box or other micro-itx (or smaller?) type of build. My goal would be to play games like battlefield 3, skyrim, WoW, ultra on at least 1080p (i might spring for a 1440p ips monitor though).
Apart from thermal requirements in such a small space, I'd be fine with either a sandy or ivy bridge processor (would a dual core pentium be better?) and something like a 660ti or 670 GTX card. I -could- go with radeon but I've never owned an ATI card before.
I'm confident and have experience in building my own systems, so liquid cooling is also a possibility if needed. The machine wouldn't need to be overclocked much, if any. Thanks for any help with the setup.
I don't really have a price requirement, max is $2500 (before monitor and peripherals) but I'm sure I won't hit that ceiling. Remember, portability is important for me on this one. Thanks!
I also don't have a strong preference of amd vs intel
