Question New Mini ITX Build

Looking to do a mobile gaming PC conformed to mini ITX. my Budget is $600 I came up with this:

GIGABYTE GA-H77N-WIFI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS8G3D1609DS1S00 - Newegg.com
BitFenix Prodigy Arctic White / White Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com
Athena Power AP-MFATX40 400W Mini ITX 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com
XFX Ultra Overclock Edition Radeon HD 7770 1GB DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card FX-777A-ZNBR - Best Buy
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116890

total: $597.94

I am unmovable on the Motherboard and I don't need a Hard drive as I have plenty kicking around. Anyone have any suggestions?

Default Re: New Mini ITX Build

20 bucks off till the 6th.
Intel Core i3-3220 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 55W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637i33220 - Newegg.com

Better GPU, less price.
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P4-3655-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card

Piece of advice, never buy PC parts from Best Buy unless you are getting a hefty discount.

That's also the wrong PSU type for the case. The Prodigy takes standard PSU size.

SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM 550W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

So this is what I went with

SILVERSTONE ST45SF 450W SFX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com
GIGABYTE GA-H77N-WIFI LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model BLS8G3D1339DS1S00 - Newegg.com
Intel Core i3-2100 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I32100 - Newegg.com

On of my desktops had its PSU die so I'm going to use my XFX Radeon HD 7770 Ultimate Overclocked Ghz Editon for now till I can afford a new PSU, GPU and a case... One of my monitors fell and shattered so I had to replace it and I didn't have enough money to buy my full build. I'll be using a spare case I have for now until I can afford all the other parts and then the BitFenix Prodigy.

Temp Case: Ultra eTorque ULT33180 Mid-Tower ATX Case - Silver, Front USB, FireWire and Clear Side at TigerDirect.com


I'll Post pictures once I get the parts and everything together. Thanks for the help everyone.
