I’m considering building a “Small Form Factor” PC build. After a long day of working at a desk, the last thing I want to do is go home to my desk to play games on. So I thought I’d build a PC so I could play games on my favorite place - the couch.
I know this is essentially an “overpriced” console, but I enjoy it, so leave me alone.
Here was my first stab at a build, with about as high end stuff as I could pick:
|CPU||Intel - Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor||$309.79 @ OutletPC|
|CPU Cooler||Cooler Master - GeminII M4 58.4 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler||$29.99 @ Newegg|
|Motherboard||ASRock - H270M-ITX/ac Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard||$91.23 @ Newegg|
|Memory||G.Skill - NS 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory||$143.98 @ Newegg|
|Storage||Crucial - MX500 500GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive||$92.89 @ OutletPC|
|Video Card||Asus - GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 8GB ROG STRIX Video Card||$548.99 @ Amazon|
|Case||Cooler Master - Elite 130 Mini ITX Tower Case||$40.47 @ Amazon|
|Power Supply||EVGA - SuperNOVA G2 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply||$83.76 @ Newegg Marketplace|
|Operating System||Microsoft - Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit||$94.89 @ OutletPC|
|Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts|
|Total (before mail-in rebates)||$1450.99|

I then started reading a bit about small-form factor builds, and thought I might be able to get away with something more built around the Thermaltake Core V21, with a GTX mini instead of a full size.
I’m still very much is “design” mode now, while I’m saving up my budget to afford it.
I’ll post more as I progress and settle on a build.
