    Sandy Bridge Mini ITX build

    This is the proposed build, what do you think? I have a Sapphire 6950 and a Seasonic 620w modular PSU along with Windows 7 64 bit.

    All the prices are in Canadian dollars as I live in Vancouver.

    The parts have been ordered except for the Scythe cooler, I have decided to just use my ECO ALC cooler for that. I may also replace the case fans with a couple of Fractal fans so I loose the LEDs.

    Re: Sandy Bridge Mini ITX build

    I like your build, please upload pics if possible when it is complete!

    I am also after a sandy bridge mini itx rig but have a strict budget of £600.

    Have come to the following items:
    Silverstone SG05BB-450 Case with 450w psu
    1 tb samsung f3 7200rpm hdd
    2x2gb ddr3 ram
    intel i5 2500k (k series so can overclock)
    Foxconn m-itx motherboard (its h67, plan on selling it and replacing with p67 when they release)
    gtx 460 1gb graphics card
    cheap dvd drive

    also planning on adding a scythe cpu cooler later

    should be a decent "gaming" sandy bridge build

    Re: Sandy Bridge Mini ITX build

    just wanted to say to the OP that although your build does look interesting (and please post results), but your original post layout (just looks like you copied and pasted from a website) caused me to skip it...
    For me personally, changing the layout (use of 'inset link' and more typing from you) would i think lead me to pay more attention.

    that all said, the build looks cool.
    I'm commenting on an internet forum. Your facts hold no sway over me.
