Help with a ~600 mITX build

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.


PS: I could do most of the build and get a good turnout (-cpu and MB) but pcpartpicker is running extremely slow for me

  3. I have seen build that do more for less through AMD...

    Also, I was looking at that video card...

    Any help?

    (Now that I think about i peeked through Neweggs stock of mITX AMD MBs... And there wasnt that many...
  4. Hi, it's not going to fit the budget if you need a monitor.

    :( Sorry. That was then. Intel really is king right now.
