Budget Mini ITX for Medium 1080p Gaming

  • 50 months ago

Been killing time this evening and drafted this budget build. It's intended to be for 1080p gaming, medium graphics settings 30+ fps. I really don't want to surpass £350. I was thinking if I ever get to building it, to have it OC'd to 4.0Ghz, probably lower. Anything you would tweak? :) Just wish to bounce ideas.

I'd say go for the Athlon X4 and a cheaper motherboard.

Forgot to mention, but reason for MoBo was I wanted WiFi :P Will play around though. Thanks!

That's better, but why not just a cheap $40 a68 mobo?
