    Need help and suggestions on a new ITX build.

    I'm finally taking the mITX route and the following are the components I have finalised on. I would like some opinion from some of the expereienced builders on whether I had overlooked something in choosing the components or made a mistake on the selection. Please let me on I how could improve on the selection as well.

    Case: Fractal design Node 304 ( I don't need the media drive)
    Processor: i7 3770s - low power
    M/b: Asus P8Z77 - I Deluxe
    Ram: Corsair Vengence LP 2x8Gb
    Cooling: Corsair H55
    Graphics: Zotac ZT-60901-10M GTX660 ( I was thinking 650Ti, but no Display port on that card)
    PS: Seasonic 520W Modular
    Boot: Samsung 840 180GB
    Storage:Seagate Barracuda 7200 3TB

    Cheers

    Looks good to me. I switched my massive case for a small ITX based one. It was originally intended to be used as HTPC but it's perfect for my needs now and takes up so little space under my desk on a shelf. If you don't need massive GPU's in SLI/Xfire it's the way to go.

    Have a look at the Bitfenix Prodigy. It's a great looking case

    Thanks for your reply. I got most of the compononents, sans the case as it is not available in my area. One guys is willing to import it for around 200$, which is way too much for me. So, I'll look into bitfenix.

    Re: Need help and suggestions on a new ITX build.

    The Bitfenix is larger and completely different. If you are going to get a case that size you may as well save some money and build a mATX system.

    I have the Fractal Node 304 and its awesome if you want a low noise system. With 4 fans in it it is completely silent from 1m away.

    Sadly if its not available then I'd look to Lian Li e.g. PC-Q18
