    Seems like a fortune to me! I know mini-itx boards run at a premium but holy cow you can get a perfectly suitable mATX motherboard, AMD Ryzen 5 3600 and some ram for less!

    Yeah I've noticed mitx motherboard pricing has become a bit excessive these days, it's not just on intel either...

    Came to post exactly this, although AMDs own ITX boards are power expensive, too. A dreadful take as far as value goes.

    I've mentioned it in other threads, I'm sure, but I bought the top-end Asus ITX board on Z170 for around £130 5 years ago.

    Edit: At time of writing, the top-end Asus mATX board is actually £10 cheaper than this.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
