Wanted to get some thoughts and recommendations on building an ITX or buying a pre-built.
My current workstation is a surface pro 6 in a study nock that is no bigger than 1.1meter (W) and 60cm (D). I only have a physical desk space for a case about 23cm (W) and 37(L) and I do not have any room under the table as there is a built in cupboard to the desk.
My Aim is to have a machine that is capable of 1440p gaming on AAA titles and be able to handle video/photo editing in the future. I already have a 1440p 144hz 32inch gigabyte screen. I want to spend around $1700 at this stage and upgrade in the future once the rtx3000 series are out.
I am leaning towards the NZXT H1 case but it is a bit pricy but the case size is perfect.
The build I am thinking right now is:
PCPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($300)
MOBO: Asus ROG Strix B450-I Gaming Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard ($260)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 ($120)
CPU Cooler: AIO Stock from the CASE
Case: NZHT H1 ($620)
Storage: P1 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($180)
Graphic Card: Galax GeForce GTX 1650 Super ($240.00)
PSU: Stock included in case 650W Gold
Total Est: $1720
Does the build seem reasonable for now?
Is there much I would need to upgrade if I wanted to have a 2080ti for example in the future?
Should I get a better motherboard if in the future I want to get the AMD Ryzen 7/9 series?
Is there a cheaper and better case I should look at with a similar size? (I think the h200i is a bit too big and won’t fit on the table)
On the other hand I could save up more and buy a MSI Trident or Corsair One but I think the value to cost is pretty high. 3k for the entry model but the small form is a plus.
