Mini-ITX Sandy Bridge gaming powerhouse?
Why do these words, put together in the same sentence, make me drool so much?
that 2nd Asus one has some weird memory slots! what type of memory will it take?
Probably SO-DIMMs for laptops
Yup, So-DIMMs. Apparently Intel is pushing them hard, yet, not even Intel uses them!
If you're not overclocking they are perfect for very low power systems though: drop in a 35W "T" CPU into the fully featured ASUS board and you're away.
On the subject of mini-ITX boards, I'm preparing an article on the Gigabyte 350N-USB3 my other Chrome tab Check back around 4th Jan.
I've just bought a ITX Gigabyte H55N-USB3 and I’m pairing it with a 6950 in a SG07-B. Should be a great little box!
I honestly think ITX is the way forward, I don’t need SLI and I’m only using 2 sticks of RAM anyway.
Ooooo what version cooler did you get? I had one that was a right PITA, but they said they'd change it before it would hit retail.
More OT: ITX cheesecake! Let's hope one of the above naufacturers gets their act together and makes one really focused towards gaming.
awww they're so tiny
Maaaan, why do I get the feeling I'll be upgrading to Sandybridge at some point... >.<
That Elitegroup board looks awesome.
It's a good thing Newegg's been out of stock on my 1156 miniITX motherboard for so long. May have to grab a SandyBridge system instead! Dibs on the ASRock with the built in wifi!
Hm, and if I upgrade this PC as well... oh dear. I smell two new machines this January!
Hmm sexy. I can see my next purchases! I like the look of number 1 and 7.
Hmm yummy, i really want my next system to be mini itx, nice small box!
I'd really like to hear more about this/see some pics if you don't mind?! Sounds exciting and I'm intrigued as to your choice of other components...
ITX next for me too
