I was wondering if anyone here can help me out. I want to build a slave pc for virtual instruments. I would like one as small as possible so that I can add components over time. I would like at least an intel i5 CPU. I have been looking at these cases
Would a case this size be capable of having an intel i5 cpu and a decent bit of ram? I plan on only using an integrated graphics card, and no cd/dvd players.
Also, for a case like this, is there a maximum wattage power supply that you could use with it? I'm pretty sure it will be external, but could you put a 500W psu for example with it, or will that cause other problems?
I has thought you meant that you'd be 'adding components' to the mini-ITX cases instead of adding more computers.
I'm thinking mini-ITX is still a reasonable option for you. Without a separate graphics card any PSU in the 200W-250W range should be plenty. And any of the recent dual core CPUs will be fine as well.
