Mini itx gaming build

January 21, 2013 5:20:42 PM

I'm creating a build for a friend. He'd like it to be an mini itx specifically the case in the parts list. His budget is $400~. I know it's not much to work with on gaming build. What's the best gaming setup I can at this budget? I've put together what I think is pretty good for 400, but you guys always seem to amaze me with what deals you can find. The games he'll play aren't to intense. Minecraft, counterstrike, and similar games. OS isn't a problem so I didn't include it in the parts list.
