Ola! My last build was my i7-920, many many years ago! I'm subsequently not down with the newfangled stuff anymore Though still capable My needs are thus: Build a killer SFF/NUC which will be silent or near silent, output to my TV via HDMI, run Ubuntu and give me lots of processing power. I'd like to fit a smallish 2.5" SSD and 8GB RAM. I'll also need a three USB ports and a gigabit ethernet port. BUT, I have no idea where to start! I could accommodate a small tower PC, however if I can fit everything into a ***-packet sized box that would be preferable! No need for optical drives, capacity storage etc as I have a server and the aforementioned 920 still happily whirring away. I'll be doing photo manipulation hence my desire for something with 8GB + and a bit of grunt. Of course if a NUC or a BRIX is the right thing I'll buy one of those, but I'd rather build it myself for the satisfaction Many thanks in advance! Cleggy.
