A Super Amazing Gift Tags: Build Systems Last response: January 29, 2013 9:21 PM in Systems Share Nooby Beast January 29, 2013 9:07:05 PM Hey guys. I'm trying to build a good enough gaming PC for a friend. I've been debating between Mini ITX or Micro ATX. Whichever is cheaper without sacrificing performance. Please help me by suggesting some builds! He won't need a Monitor, OS, Keyboard, or a mouse. He won't need max graphics or anything. Just something in the med-high. The budget is about 400$ which isn't a lot at all. But I'm young and I don't work enough to build him an awesome top of the line rig. I know I am asking alot, but hopefully this great community will help me help my friend out, and hey maybe I'll learn a thing or two while getting reply's. Thanks!
