    ARM is the future x86 will be obsolete if not the open-source competitor will make ARM obsolete... (when devs bother to patch their game to support ARM we will finally get some usable benchmarks)

    I disagree. I have a feeling that this is going to completely shift the computer market, and I think Apple is going to be very, VERY successful with ARM (especially as I agree with Linus's tinfoil hat theory about them slowing down their Intel macs and making them look like it's Intel's fault and not Apple's intentionally bad engineering/cooling/etc to make ARM look better when it launches).
     
    Honestly, I haven't been this excited for any computer hardware stuff in a very, very long time. I am a huge supporter of ARM and I personally believe that the most limiting factor is that the vast majority of ARM devices are locked-down phones and stuff.
     
    Also, one big thing I am curious about is how much battery life they can squeeze out.

    I see them being successful in their move. The one part I am concerned about is gpu power but I wouldn't be surprised if they are doing a apple cpu + amd gpu combo for the bigger devices.
     
    Developers will see this as a drag that is for sure power pc to intel was rough too in the beginning but a year or 2 after the move lower end intel macs were beating the best of the best g5s. Yes there was some stagnation in terms of software development but what happened afterwards was a huge boom. Just look at adobe and the move. Going from cs3 to cs4 wasn't that big but both cs5 and cs6 were massive improvements. Plenty of other examples out there but those were the easiest to spot.
     
    Arm is now a very mature platform and they have one big trick up their sleeves that you haven't mentioned too. Microsoft. They are pushing for a windows arm experience and have been trying for ages. Now we finally have a somewhat usable windows experience finally (not great) but it works. That's the most important part. Both giant apple and Microsoft are pushing now to move x86 programs to arm. Which then puts pressure on developers to use more universal stuff so programs work on both.
     
    Also performance concerns aren't really that big. Currently arm has basically just been for mobile passively cooled devices. But now they suddenly can have heatsinks and whatnot. The current performance we have seen from arm chipsets is pretty good but just imagine what a purpose built desktop arm solution could do without having to worry about heat.
     
    Also the move to arm is cheaper for them as it will all be in house stuff then. So they have an even higher profit margin per device. Also they can then decide to make a cheaper device that won't compromise the apple experience they hold so high with low end specs that are actually enough to run the new mac os. Intel didn't exactly give them many options for that as their true cheap mobile cpu's are kinda ancient and just garbage.

    You must understand that Apple will be making their own ARM chips (Like they do already for their mobile devices) for their MacBooks. Saying that the performance that they want will take years to grasp is untrue as well. Apple design their operating systems incredibly well to gain the most out of their devices so I do not feel that this will be an issue. Apple (sadly) are not moving to AMD. 
     
    About the GPU's as well... They are going into MacBooks remember.... When was the last time that you saw someone buy a MacBook purely for the graphical performance?

    You're starting too high, most buyers will ignore your listing because your starting bid is so high. List at auction for $50, or set a Buy it Now price of $85.
    I don't see a single listing with bids that exceed $75, you gotta get really lucky to pull off that starting bid.

    yes, mad to look at everything objectively weigh the pros and cons of different options and try to find the best option for what the person asked for.
     
    you guys have tried and failed find technical arguments and think im attacking the matx standard and saying its inferior. 
     
    its not but its not the best option for what she wanted, she started out with standard mid atx board and case. you geared her that matx direction I wanted to make her aware of the pitfalls. you want to pretend there isnt any and mid atx boards and micro atx boards are the same.
     
    they are not there are tradeoffs, and i have said enough things about some of the tradeoffs instead of looking at the things i mentioned you are now calling me sick attacking me personally.
     
    its really sad you cant get rid of your bias and look at things objectively to provide the best solution for people who are asking for advice.

    1. Not entirely true, but for the most part, outside of expandability, they're not really different in any meaningful way. The chipsets are the same. You could make broad generalizations and say that mATX boards typically have lesser VRMs and are aimed at a more budget-minded audience. You'd be more right than wrong, with mATX boards typically costing less than ATX boards of the same tier. If you're determined to spend a shit-ton of money on a mATX board with high-end VRMs and BIOS reset buttons and light-up POST codes, it can be done.

    Your best option is probably the 500GB SN500 from WD. It's not that good of a value, but it's the highest capacity one available.

    Oh. Well itx has ups and downs. Just like anything else in the world. 
     
    But Id pit my itx against a full ATX any day especially on AMD platform. Damn cpu wont go more until -75c or so (Dice cooling) over what you'll accomplish on a high end water loop.
     
    So no, it doesnt really matter. Get a board that fits your needs first then consider wants. 
     
    A little research should be the #1 recommendation to a new system builder. Never buy first and learn last.
     
    My highest OC was done on a mAtx board clocked 7685mhz 4+2 VRM 2.0+ vcore FX cpu 8300.
     
    So no, you dont even need a high end LN2 board. I might have hit 8 ghz with one, but the degredation is very fast under LN2. None the wiser, I did most of my fun with cheaper hardware.
     
    I used the higher end usually for daily rig because I had more expansion back when quad x fire was a thing.
