I'm considering either building a Mini-STX or Mini-ITX (Thin) or purchasing an Intel NUC for classic / retro gaming (either old PC games or PS2 / Gamecube level emulation) and web use. It appears that I'd get better value for money with a custom build (however I'll happily be corrected). I'd either use a Mini-STX build consisting of: 1) Silverstone VT02, ASRock H110M-STX, External PSU 2) AS Rock Desk Mini 110 Or a Mini Thin ITX build with Silverstone Petit PT13B, Asus H11T, External PSU. Either of the above would use Intel Pentium CPU and a custom CPU fan: 1) G4400 2) G4560 / G4600 I've left of the RAM / SSD as they're similar on both setups. The builds above appear marginally cheaper than the NUC i3 6100U / 7100U, at the expense of a slightly bigger case. I'd welcome anyone's thoughts on the above including: 1) Does the use of Pentium CPUs achieve better results than the i3 NUC, especially with the integrated graphics? 2) Which setup would be less noisy? 2) Should I just give in and get an NUC at the expense / fun of building it from scratch? Thanks!
