    Mini pc build

    as the title states I'm looking into building a mini pc. so far I got this for a line up any help with the build would be appreciated. I want something powerful for gaming also need it to be mobile. On new egg the price is 1476.90 I would be able to go over that amount if necessary. games I play would be WoW league of legends and soon Flight simulators which I'm told require some serious processing power. thanks for any advice in advanced !

    Take a look at the H55, should be better performance for less.

    Could also take a look at some of the boards here the Asus board looks very appealing but it's also the more expensive one.

    Tbh, Take a look at this if you put in the same hardware its seems to be a little cheaper and REALLY small/portable

    Personally Id replace the mobo with either an Asrock Z77e-ITX or the Asus P8z77-I over the board you listed. Also even tho case is preferential Id get a bit fenix prodigy theyre pretty snazzy. Id also go with a Samsung 830/840 or crucial m4 over the Kingston SSD due to the sandforce controller (whether theyre better or not now Id rather take my chances with higher reliability).

    Same video card I have. 660 ti can handle anything you throw at it at max setting 1920x1080p. Think you should get a Asus motherboard though. Other than that, you should be fine
