Are there any mini Itx boards for am3+?
I want one for my first build.
I'm using the Bitfenix Prodigy case with the fx 6300.

I'm still waiting myself for some manufacturer to produce a mITX board. As of yet, no. Nothing available. Maybe it's because the faster Bulldozer/Vishera processors run too hot for the small confines the boards may end up in. I don't know.

Damn it, I want to use that case, It's super sexy!
What would you guys think, Core i 3 3220 for 104€ or the Amd Athlon II x4 750K + hyper 212 evo for 102€ and OC it?

If it's main use is for gaming, I'd go for the i3. Mainly for the heat issue in a small case.

But if you can get a good O/C and keep the case cool, the Athlon can catch up to the i3 and maybe do a tad better.
