I have a Gaems G155 gaming & entertainment mobile system with an Xbox 360 for when I travel. My 360 bite the dust and I'm tired of wasting money on consoles. My plan is to build a custom mini-itx computer to be secured inside the G155. I have a i3-3220 lying around from a previous build and I plan on pairing it with a Gigabyte Ga-H77N-Wifi board. I picked up a Silverstone 450W sfx psu to power this crazy idea of mine. My main problem is finding a gpu to run games like BF4 & Arkham Origins at a constant 40fps without sacrificing all of the details. The built-in screen is a 15.5" 720p LED display. I have about 4.0-4.5" of clearance in order to close the case. I've looked at Sapphire 7750 lp and a Zotac GTX 650 lp, however I want more bang for my money.
Any thoughts?

Well at 720p, lower end cards will perform well. Have you looked into the mini Asus 660 design?


EDIT: Mybad its the mini 670 or the mini 760. I got to looking and they might be a half an inch or so too big, but its something to consider and try to maybe make a case mod.

The way the case is designed makes it impossible for modifying. The screen is housed within the lid.

I am interested in doing the same thing. I was wondering if you ever completed this project seeing as though the thread stop after a few posts.

Actually I haven't given up on this project. I actually have a working prototype housed within a Xbox 360 motherboard tray. I given up on using the i3-3220 and went with the Kaveri A10-7850K on a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI FM2+ mini itx board. I'm running the A10 in dual graphics with an XFX R7-250A-ZLF4 Radeon R7 250 card. Currently getting high 40's - low 50's fps in Batman:Arkham Origins. However, in Battlefield 4 there is a lag issue I'm trying to work out. Only happens during the cinematic scenes in campaign mode and it really starts to lag during 64 man conquest maps like Silk Road or Dawnbreaker.

In order to complete the project I need to sheet a sheetmetal that measure 12"x14". Probably going to have to use 14 or 16 gauge metal to support the weight of the components. I have a blueprint of the layout and I just need to figure out how to secure the power supply. It's still a work in progress.

I am glad to hear it is still ongoing. Maybe when the project is finished you could post a picture of it finished.
