$200 Mini-ITX CPU/Motherboard Combo

Hello! I need the best CPU and Motherboard combo I can get in the Mini-ITX form factor for under $200 ($10-$20 +/- is fine). It will be inside a Bitfenix Prodigy, be paired with a 650 Ti BOOST, and have an Corsair H55 liquid cooler.

    I don't think they make mini itx am3+ boards so you would have to go with intel is that ok?

    This would allow for upgrade to 4670k, if you ever wanted

  2. I was aware that there are no am3+ boards, but there are lga1155, lga1150, fm2, and fm2+ boards.
  3. Thanks. Thats what i was thinking about before, but i wanted to know if there are other options. Is the athlon 760k comparable? Or not worth it?
  4. No the 760k is not comparable, but if you can stretch it the 4670k is a new level of performance vs the i3.
