I have about $1000 NZD to spend (dont need os) and i am not sure to go with i3 or AMD APU. I want a compact mini itx rig in the bitfenix prodigy(or another case, i dont know but im open to ideas). Will be gaming on it and doing some photoshop/other applications. Mainly league of legends and homework stuff.

The other thing was not using mini itx format, i would prefer a compact rig though.
