I'm wanting to transition my existing PC into a gaming PC for the lounge room. My current PC is a few years old so there's not much to salvage, but I did upgrade to a Galax 1080 GTX and wish to use that in the new build.
Current specs: i5 2500K Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 PC3-12800 4x4gb Cosair Force SSD 120gb
Of course my existing CPU is bottle necking me quite a bit, even with a small bios OC. so time for upgrade!
The main aim is powerful, compact and quiet. I'm looking for a small form factor case that will fit my GPU and AIO water cooling, decent amount of SSD storage (probably M.2 for current games I'm playing and a secondary storage). Possible something like the Fractal Design Define S Nano or Node mini ITX cases (again unsure if my gpu will fit these).
I found the dimensions of my GPU card if that helps: Dimensions(with Bracket): 296 x 144 x 43mm
Not hugely limited by budget just looking for good bang for buck.
Thanks everyone in advance.
