NOTE : This will include ITX-compatible components which is the motherboard.
Here are my desired sizes, this will fit in the ITX system that I am building.
Maximum CPU cooler height = 175mm
PSU Cage total depth: 180mm
Recommended PSU depth: 150mm
Maximum PSU Depth:160mm.
Maximum Fully Modular PSU Depth: 1560mm
Maximum Semi-Modular PSU Depth: 160mm
Top Radiator thickness (incl. fans) = 175mm
Front Radiator thickness (incl. fans, HDD & ODD cage removed) = 150mm
I didn't include the GPU length because I will be using GTX 670 FTW. For the rest, you may recommend me. If possible, you can make it an ATX or M-ATX build, which includes the case. If ITX, I have the case picked.
Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week or so.
Budget Range (IF ITX excluding the case) : $520.02 (Case and GPU choosen, the estimated build is $1,000, check below for the excluded parts (May go less and for rebate I don't mind putting it up, it will just take weeks and I don't want to risk it)
Budget Range (IF M-ATX or ATX including the case) : $440.03
Parts Excluded :
GTX 670 FTW 2 GB - $399.99
Bitfenix Prodigy - $79.99 (IF ITX will be choosen, if ATX or M-ATX, the budget range at the top)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: MOST IMPORTANT : Extreme Gaming LEAST IMPORTANT : HTPC
Are you buying a monitor: No, I got a 34" display here already.
Parts to Upgrade: I need all parts to be upgraded, except the case and gpu. Which is composed of GTX 670 FTW costing $399.99 and a Bitfenix Prodigy costing $79.99. If possible make it an ATX or M-ATX build.
Do you need to buy OS: Not necessary
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any website with free shipping from US or possible, international. Please no rebates...
Location: California, USA
Parts Preferences: CPU must be better than Intel specifications if AMD is choosen, but if possible, make it Intel.
Overclocking: Yes, only the graphic card. But for CPU, if it improves gaming then maybe yes.
SLI or Crossfire: No, the GTX 670 FTW can handle the heat alone.
Your Monitor Resolution: 32" display not sure about the resolution, it's a single monitor.
Additional Comments: If possible, needs to be a silent setup or a style that depicts a gaming rig. Wanting to play all current games at the market.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I am upgrading because my laptop can't handle intense gaming.
Hmm perhaps state the model of your TV - i suspect it could be 720p or 1366 x768 by which you wouldn't need the sheer horsepower offered by the GTX 670 ^^ IMO for gaming, even if one went ITX, the sheer length of GPU, ATX PSU size, etc means you'd most likely end up with either a biggish ITX case or a cramped case so i'd hit an mATX form factor ^^
