Hi guys i am building a custom case out of clear acrylic but due to the size of the room and the case i am severly limited on space so was looking to use a 120watt pico psu in the case as i cannon fit anything else in the case my system is a core i3 2120 with asus motherboard micro itx with 120gb sssd ocz drive , slimeline optical drve 8gb ram and not put a graph card in yet nreeds to be half height and short. anyone any ideas will my pico psu be able to power it? does anyone know are they any good pico psus or am i better putting some other psu in can anyone recommend and realoly really small psu thanks ps not mad expensive on psu £80 or less and around £50-£60 on graph cheers

Im somewhat surprised that PSU can power that much already. Sorry dude you really can't have a good gaming rig with that little psu. Also you should have gone with an i3 2100t, it only uses 35watts. But I would say you should see if you can squeeze a 200 watt in there, or try to make your case a little bigger. The only gpu I could think of would be like a 620 or something, but if that won't work you are probably stuck with integrated.

yep. should have went with something bigger like a m-atx case or get the i3 2100t. 120w is really unsafe.

shuttle had some psu s for their mini pc barebone kits that go up to 500w. search them up and see if they fit
