I already have most the part picked out. But I need some help whether they will get bottle necked or if you guys have better part ideas. It is on a budget $700-$800. I wont need a monitor or accessories (keyboard/mouse). I will need a operating system. This WILL be for gaming (Arma 2, Arma 3, etc..) The parts I have picked out are for a mini itx build, but if you have any idea's to make it cheaper or better for the money, I'm willing to change.

I was unsure if you wanted to stick with your GPU budget so i went for the card that gives you outstanding performance for your dollar. And this is a better card.The 270x is a rebadge of the 7870. This is the 7870 XT.Much better card for the money.

The case is subjective.But this is a good case to start with.ATX build

EDIT:Changed the PSU and OS.Chose Win 7 the first time round
