Is the Athlon X2 270 ideal for a small and slim Cpu Case?

I'm not sure if anyone out here is trying this out but, my goal is to build a budget gaming cpu comparable to the size of the Xbox 360 or playstation 3.

  1. i'm building a mini itx with an i3 3220T, 35w so easy cooling. probably better than the x2.

    How much does your build cost?
  3. 300 total, but no gpu I'm using a morex 350 case.

    I had a quick look for a case that can take a right angled pci-e card as then you'll not be limited to low profile cards

    Nice. That ivy bridge seems a little over price though :/
  5. 2+2 though, and as I want to use a 70w pico psu and a DC brick, I have to keep the wattage down, amd is still rated too high, and mini itx amd boards are hardly available.
