    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.

    If you want good graphics then consider 2400G.
