Hello guys. I'm building my first PC soon and need some advice. It's going to be a mini-itx gaming rig. I want someone to look at my parts, tell me if I did good, and if the parts all work out. I did a lot of research and the parts SHOULD fit/cooperate, but if anything looks wrong PLEASE let me know.

General Advice is gladly appreciated and welcomed.

I would get a non-reference gtx670. It will be less loud and run cooler.

Any suggestions? I've never even heard that term before.

Yes, reference cards have one fan and an enclosed casing. They are louder and run hotter than non-reference cards. If you are required to get a reference card then go for it.

Well what do you think honestly? I heard that the reference fan is essential in order to cool the card in an itx case. but again, This is my first build so I'm still anxious.

I don't know much about itx builds. If the card is lined up so that fan is near a grate in the case I suppose it would be better.
