Default Friends final build list ( mini itx build inside! )

Whats up guys!!

im VERY excited about this build, i believe it is that absolute best bang for your buck system you could possibly build without making any major compromises! its all going to be housed in a Bitfenix Prodigy mini ITX form factor case that has W9.8" x T15.9" x L14.1" dimensions. this is going to be a full fledged gaming rig that can comfortably fit on top of your desk. The goal is to have a small, quiet, cool and very powerful little computer. here's the specs:

black Bitfenix Prodigy
AsRock H77m mini itx Motherboard
i5 3750K processor
Corsair Vengeance 8gig 1600 Memory
Corsair 600W powersupply
MSI GTX660TI 2gig Twin frozr IV
1Tb hdd
LG 24x dvd burner

total cost out the door (after Ca. sales tax ) from Microcenter: $947

we are going to be building it on Monday December 17th, so look for updates then!

Sure hope that isn't a CX. I would have got the 520w Antec HCG M.

Oh well, least the rig wont cap efficiency. Why no SSD?

whats wrong with the 600X?

and a ssd woulda broken the budget. my friend is a youth pastor, he has to have a lot of storage room for pitures and videos from youth and church events.

is this better?

it is modular...

Nah I wouldn't buy that. The TX650 was only 20 bucks more than the Antec you just listed. The CX will do fine, just they are super budget. Wouldn't trust them at all with a rig like this. That's just me though.

Lol if that was me, I would have bought an SSD anyways and just uploaded all the content after converting it to Google Drive.
