ITX boards demand a premium right now. One way to go would be this board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ...and this processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... A bit over your limit, and you would still need a gfx card because the on-die GPU is not very good. You might be interested in going the APU route instead. Go with this board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ...and one of these processors depending on your budget: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... You wouldn't need a discrete card, because the APU contains a good on-die GPU for gaming at 720p or less. And you can always add a discrete card later if you want to. ultracreativeusername January 25, 2013 10:23:20 PM Best answer selected by ultracreativeusername. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
