FM2 Mini-ITX Motherboard

Hopefully this is the correct board to post this!

 

TL;DR I need a Mini ITX motherboard (FM2) for less than $70.

 

I recently upgraded to a Ryzen 5 build and have a bunch of old parts from my previous FM2 build that I would like to make into a functioning computer. The motherboard that I was using with the FM2 CPU was a Micro ATX MB. That being said I would not mind using the Micro ATX MB I currently own if a very small Micro-ATX case (around $50) can be recommended (I want the portability of an ITX system). I am planning on using my old MSI Twin Frozr 750Ti in the build if I have height and length clearance.

 

All the FM2 ITX MBs I have seen are all around the $110 range and is out of my budget at the moment.

 

Finally, I would like to add that I would not mind switching socket types or even switching to Intel if I can find a Mini ITX MB and CPU for a decent price (no more than $120 for both the MB and CPU combined). To give an idea of what games I am looking to run (for alternative CPU recommendations): Skyrim, Resident Evil series, DOTA 2. Essentially, non current generation games. 

 

Thank you for the help!

That might be a hard task because FM2 is EOL for years.


You can also look at FM2+ Boards as well. There might be some older ASROCK Boards still available. But that's about it...

 

To be honest: Why not spend a bit more and get an AM4 ITX Board with a Bulldozer CPU Or Athlon 200GE??
Though its a bit more expensive and you need RAM...

Yea thought about this. The main thing was to utilize my old RAM and CPU, which I guess is a little contradictory since I also said I wouldn't mind switching socket types. I guess I just really want an ITX build. Thanks for the help.

The only other alternative you have is to get a mediocre/cheap µATX Case...

 

For example:

That's the best you can do right now. There are no smaller units. right now...

 

The Low Profile/Half Height µATX Cases seems to be dead and not available anymore (for example: Compucase 7K09). But then again, you are very limited in terms of usable Graphics Cards...

And you need to replace that...
