Hey guys,

I am looking into building a Core i5 System in an MicroATX case. I just want to know if it's possible and what components I should look on getting?

Thanks

Yes it is.

Motherboard wise you would be looking at the following

Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2

Asus Maximus III Formula GENE

EVGA P55 Micro or LE

Thanks man for the help! Now I ain't a big gamer any more. The game I play the most is like the Football Manager series but at times I do want to stick on some Counterstrike Source and things.

With MicroATX cases being small will I be restricted on what Graphics Cards I can use I am guessing it would be a tight squeeze for a double slot card in an MircoATX case?~

You can fit a HD5870 in there, but its really tight at the end.


If you only play those games then a HD4850 would be fine...
