    Guys, i need help in choosing an itx motherboard, CPU and Ram. I have the itx case and sfx PSU.

    I want a decent trio but not too expensive. Intel is my choice and maybe 16gb ram.

    Long time since I built an itx system so no clue as to what is good these days. Mobo must have wifi and would like a cpu with some gaming quality but nothing big as I intend to get a separate Gpu in the future. As for budget, not sure. Just give me some alternatives if you can. Appreciate the help.

    Oh, and I will need a hard drive. SSD or one of these:

    Cheers.

    Not a lot. Lol. On board GPU needs to be good. I hear intel are having issues?

    All way too expensive for me.

    What about an AMD setup with a good APU?

    For what it is, that's a good setup.

    If you can afford it, consider going for 16gb of ram, or a single 8gb stick, so you can add another later.

    My basket at Overclockers UK:
    Total: £425.46 (includes shipping: £10.50) ​

    dont know what its for, but if you going to add a gpu at some point its usually better not to get an APU and while you could find a better card used, ive added this one just for visuals and isnt expensive to worry about replacing later on.


    edit: i didnt see the ssd option, so just add that to the price and as for psu if its sfx then silverstone if the corsair sf450 is too much more.
