gotta have goals, something to work towards for your next big upgrade

 

do you plan on buying the ram new instead of used? Are you buying from the US?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained

@Fasauceome I am buying it used for £17. I am buying from the UK. I am thinking, is it better to spend the money on a good case or good hardware ?

Well, from the looks of your budget constraints, the hardware is all you can get. The motherboard doesn't even have a PCIe x16 slot so you must be paying pretty little for that (also note it'll inhibit graphics card additions)
