Hello there. I am seeking some advice on a spec for a gaming *mini-PC* that I'm hoping to get. As such it is limited by space and power supply (and to some extent funds) and I need to know which CPU and GPU combination will work best.
Below are the options that are open to me in regards to CPU and GPU combinations and I would like to know which you think would give best overall gaming performance and why. All combinations will have 4GB RAM.
i take a look at the 660ti and the amd cards too. the 660ti most of them are the short 9 inch ref cards. be care full of the mini atx motherboards. there ok for one video card and sometime a network card. they also have shorter warranty then there standard atx mb and sometime have less features or lower quality power and heat sinks. makesure when you price your build you put some money on a name brand 80 bronze power supply. in a small case your going to be running parts hot and hard..having good parts will make your rig last. on your small case i look into one with a fan on the top case to pull or push air out of the mini case. or i would add one.
@ Dapake, The 3570K CPU is not available with the selections I've made, the only options I have really are the ones I've listed. However I could get an AMD GPU instead of Nvidia.
@ smorizio the 660 TI is not available to select. Its probably important to note at this point that I am getting a company to build a mini-PC for me, of my own specification, and as such they have a set list of equipment to choose from.
So at the moment it's just the combination choices I've listed above to choose from (bearing size, power and cost in mind). Which of these would be best?
