Hi all,
I am planning to get a my first mini itx for normal usage + light gaming (warcraft and wow). I am not sure what kind of component should I get, first in mind for the casing is SG05 or SG06. CPU wise, AMD phenom, or duo core Pentium is enough.

Any suggestion on motherboard and VGA? or anything. No OC needed, as i want it to be less noise comp.

Thanks

Welcome to ITX mylica!

Board: J&W MINIX 785G or Zotac 9300. Both offer wonderful on board graphics capable of WC and WoW.

CPU: X2 235 or E6500.

As for Vga, its all up to you. If you find the on board VGA is insufficient, do try ATi 4770 or 5770. Hope the info helps

DD is a self-professed AMD fan for its price and power efficiency. I personally tend to agree with him on that as well.

Intel usually delivers a lot more processing power at the cost of a higher consumption rate (and most times, more expensive chips). Pairing Intel boards with appropriate casings and power supplies may at times be a challenge, too.

It all boils down to personal preference and tastes, though. For an everyday use PC, we won't really require full PCIe 2.0 16x lanes or some sort of uber-powerful graphics card and processor. My advice: do your homework diligently and decide for yourself what suits your usage best.

For those of you who have deep pockets 9VARZ Dec 27th, 09, 12:02 AM #2273
**A little WOLS for this post, some of you might have seen these before**

For those of you who have deep pockets, here's a casing that promises the potential of virtually ZERO moving parts to enable a truly quiet HTPC. Time to meet mCubed HFX 724/725 ("M2").



It hails from Vienna, Austria and is also available in both silver/white. Prices are £260 each before tax and delivery from QuietPC.



How it achieves the zero moving parts challenge is by means of using the casing itself as a fully passive heatsink (look at those fins at the side), pairing SSDs to a good motherboard (no problem for an HFX owner, judging from the price tag) further adds to the claim.



From its size, it is also obvious that the power supply used for this one would have to be external. In this case, the external bundled power brick is a 140-watter "pico-PSU"-like, fanless module (HFX EF14). The casing also comes with a single PCI expansion slot but would require the use of ribbon extenders for connection.



Specs and additional details here.

Anyone up for a zero moving parts PC?

Take a look at the accessories tab. They also have a 300W SFX PSU with 80mm fan:

That's interesting. Maybe they expected users with optical drives to have a molex to SATA converter?
