  1. Best answer
    you can get this motheboard for way less and add this usb wirelss adapter around 25 dollars which should be enough to upgrade your gpu to a faster 270x
  2. Be aware that the Bitfenix Prodigy is NOT a small case. If your reason for building mini-ITX is size constraints, look at a Lian Li PC-Q08 instead. Even that is not small, but it is much smaller than the Prodigy.
