So you want a new computer, Have you considered an mini itx build?

Yo yo peeps, welcome back, the Cisco Kidd is in the house and wants to talk about mitx computers. Some of us are familiar with micro atx computers but how about we take it down a notch and make it smaller with mini itx factor. More portable & compact but as powerful as many may need even the hard core gamer. People today want the power but not necessarily a full tower system. Well here is your answer!

I have a build on the go, hope to post completed pictures within the next 7-10 days but components are as follows and yes it is AMD based:), now before Intel fanboys flame this build remember every build has a purpose and the components chosen will meet the need and purpose Main focus of this build is to use it with an Elgato HD Game Capture unit so my son can record his Xbox 360 NHL 15 game play, comment on it and load these live clips to his You Tube channel to teach others, the boy has some mad skillz!
