Upgrading? to a traveling case

ShotDC
 Share

hi guys, im back on the forums once more requiring your help, so the thing is that for countrys political reasons i have to move to another country, and the only thing that would really kill me to leave behind would be my pc, hence why i want to use some of the parts i already have to build a smaller pc i can travel with, so i was thinking, what would i need in order to make a small form factor pc i can carry with me in my luggage?

Things i have:

1- GTx 970 g1 gaming

2- 250 ssd

3- 2tb sshd

4- this are the things i might need to leave behind: i5 3570k, motherboard gigabyte ds3h, 8 gb ddr3 ram, rm 650x psu

 

budget is 300 ish can get to 400, using the old parts can be an option if that budget is too low, say buy a small factor motherboard that can use that i5 i already have.

 

Hope you guys can help me out here, have a nice one

JK but the bitfenix prodigy comes to mind, how portable are you trying to get? does it need to be rugged?

that's gonna be a little hard because of how thicc new GPU's are. you would probably need something like mini itx and something with a built in PSU

Can't you just put your CPU and RAM into a pocket of your hand luggage?

the smallest PC case i've seen was the MSI trident, however its a prebuilt system and is well over your budget. but it is much smaller than normal towers

that actually might be a solution, like a boxy case, would it fit in a hand luggage tho?

I was watching some videos last night and i found the inwin a1, you should take a look at it, super compact. the CME 110 is relatively large
