I would like to build a new ITX gaming rig as early as next week and would like some opinions on this build. I would like my rig to achieve the following:

 

  • 1080p gaming
  • Small form factor
  • Quiet as possible
  • Budget including monitor around £1300

That will work very well, you pretty much built the exact same computer I did a few weeks ago, granted I skipped the spin hdd because I don't want the noise and I used a nano rather than a node.

Personally I would change the motherboard for a cheaper one and get rid of the fans as they're not necessary then try and squeeze a 1070 into your budget.

 

For example: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/p63t2R

The mobo I picked is no doubt a bit expensive but I mainly picked it for it's front m.2 slot and heatsink to help reduce ssd throttling .  

 

Since I what my build to be as quiet as possible I would prefer a non-blower gpu  which is why I thought  the fans would be necessary. A 1070 would be awesome though.

I already own the hdd since I salvaged it from an old build, felt like a shame to let it go to waste.

yeah, it'll work just fine and the SF450 is top-notch.
