    Having looked again you could actually put a pair of 7970s in there and it would still come in at a grand,give or take £10.

    That's epic power for £1000.

    I'm running my near-finished M-ITX in a BitFenix prodigy build and here's what I'm using:

    Intel Core i5 4670k CPU

    Asus ROG Maximus VI Impact Z87

    Corsair H100i Water Cooler (picked up a 2 pack of their SP120 Quiet Edition fans to replace the stock fans on this cooler. They were ridiculously loud!)

    8GB DDR3 1600 Corsair Vengeance LP RAM

    Radeon HD 7770 GPU (this is the part that needs replacing)


    With the H100i set to quiet mode with those fans, this would make a perfect high-end gaming/media PC. Trust me, if you plan on using this for movie watching you need to buy replacement fans for the H100i.

    The reason I went with the ROG board is because besides awesome overclocking and tweaking features it comes with built in wifi and a miniature audio chip called supreme FX which provides way better audio quality. And it looks awesome!

    Looks awesome mate. How much has it cost you if you don't mind me asking?
