Help with a ~600 mITX build Tags: New Build Gaming Systems Product Last response: February 7, 2013 12:36 AM in Systems Share McLubbin February 6, 2013 11:45:28 PM Planning on building it in the Bitfenix Prodigy (black) mITX case.. Going to be doing light gaming, but still max it out for 600$ The problem is, for that price it seems to be better going with AMD... I dont know anything about AMD (Minimal) Can some one put me together a good gaming PC (mITX of course) with a monitor (Doesnt need to be 1080p, maybe 20" or so)? No other peripherals. Thanks PS: I could do most of the build and get a good turnout (-cpu and MB) but pcpartpicker is running extremely slow for me More about : 600 mitx build McLubbin February 7, 2013 12:18:01 AM http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003UVCSZ6/ref=s9_simh...
