I am Looking for an extremely portable system of components to go along with the Lian Li PC-Q08.
It fits Mini ITX/DTX motherboards, an ATX PSU,4-6 HDDs, 1 x 5.25" bay.
I prefer an Intel CPU and an NVidia GPU.
I have a budget ao around $1500 plus Tax and plan to order everything I can from Tigerdirect.ca due to Newegg's shipping rates to Canada. The way I see it, the Case and MOBO from Newegg, everything else from Tigerdirect.ca.
I was looking at the ASUS p8z77-I Deluxe along with the i5 3570k
Is this the best?
What other components should I be looking at for the rest of the build?
I currently use a PC-Q08 for my ITX system and it's great. But make sure you really plan your build out ahead of time. If you're going to run an all-in-one water cooler make sure you get one that will fit. You will not be able to fit a larger Radiator with the PSU placement as the case sits. Also if you're not to attached to the case Bitfenix has a new case out now called the Prodigy. Will save you some money plus the layout is a little more efficient allowing you to use a tower cooler such as the Hyper 212 thus saving you even more money. But you can't beat Lian Li as far as the quality of the case goes. Here's a link to the Prodigy: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
