I want to build a new system. I am planning on giving my current system to my mom who desperately needs an upgrade. The hard drives are going to be swapped but I am very happy with my system but now want something just as good if not better to be Mini ITX, mostly because I am in love with the BitFenix Prodigy Computer Case and want to build around it. What would be the Mini-ITX motherboard that would be equal?
The first build is my current build which I want to mirror or improve on. Second build is part I have and would like to put to use. I do not do ANY gaming so video card really doesn't matter.
I would still suggest getting a better GPU than that. It is incredibly slow. At least with my experience with it. Just make sure you get a board with one GPU slot. That is really all you need. Just look at newegg a little bit.
The quality of the motherboard won't make much of a difference. Normally what separates boards is features and overclockability. Being a mini ITX build, you're probably not going to be doing a whole lot of that. And being a mini ITX build, expandability was never really much of an option anyway. Any board with one slot should be fine. I'd look into some reviews of both the case and motherboard you're considering. There might be some space concerns or placement of certain pieces that may prevent you from installing the board in the case.
