More about light portable budget gaming think
  1. Looks good, that's about as small as you're going to get with a proper graphics card. If you want to take a small hit in performance for more portability, here's another option:

    Intel i3-3220
    G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 1600Mhz
    ASRock B75M-ITX
    Sapphire HD 7750 1GB Low Profile
    Samsung 840 Series 120GB
    Antec ISK 300-150 with 150W PSU
    Samsung Slim Internal DVD Burner

    Total - $583.93 on Newegg
  2. I think the 7750 is a bit underpowered for what i'm using this system for, plus i like the upgradibility the 500w PSU gives me, i could stick in a higher end card down the road if i so desire. However i do like the SSD, i might swap out the HDD for it
  3. wait for haswell

    Fair enough, just check the dimensions on the Prodigy though, may not be as small as you think.
