I need help building a portable pc.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is going to be my first pc build, and it's very ambitious for me. I'm a student and I love to do modded minecraft, as it's one of the most creative things I've ever encountered.
My location is Beaverton, OR, and my budget is $500 (Willing to stretch it more if need be). I'm planning on getting most of my parts used, as I don't have a big budget. For a monitor, a small monitor would be better, and the resolution of course 1080p. The most important thing is portability, as I need it to be somewhat lightweight, as I don't have any technology at school, and I would need to bring it to school. I was thinking of using a Velka 3, but I can't find it anywhere. So, please, please help me out as I am struggling on how to do this build. (Graphics card does not matter that much, as I am using this for modded minecraft, and warthunder.)

Do your you have access to a non portable monitor first? I would recommend a USB monitor for portability but you have to install Windows before you use it, and you can't use it in the BIOS because it's entirely software based.


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 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

make sure you quote us so we see your responses

 

you'll need that monitor to install windows, then you can use a portable USB monitor

I highly suggest a used RX 470 or 570 for this build, they go for like $70 on eBay.
