Alright, well I'm thinking about doing this build from an austin evans video, but i'm not sure if it'll work out in the long run. Should I upgrade to an i5 or is an i3 good for gaming in the future since the consoles run off an apu? Also how is the upgradability? Will I be restricted at all? Could I only buy small graphic cards or will this case fit it?
I could go more expensive aswell, and if there's too many disadvantages to a mini-itx cases, I could build a full build too.
Thanks!

Not good for gaming in the future on 4K on three screens at Ultra, but it is certainly usable.
If you want it to be more future proof then you would have to put down a whole lot more of money, and I don't know if in the future you could fit in a bigger, better GPU. You would want to upgrade the CPU if you have the money, the build itself right now is good anyway.

Don't put the OS on two hard drives. I can tell you how to put games on your HDD. Create a folder in your HDD and name it Program Files 2 so you do not get it mixed up with the Operating System Program Files (86x) or Program Files in the OS SSD Hard Drive. Then in Program Files 2 make a folder named Gaming. Then in the Gaming folder make anther folder and name that the game. Now in the installation of the game, select the custom installation, then there should be an option of where you want to put the game in. Then it should install in that folder.
