For this build I wanted the most power I could possibly pack into a small rig. I wanted my rig to have no limits, so I could feel confident throwing anything at it. Small enough to take it anywhere with me and because of that the handle at the top was a must. This is my first build, but I had some experienced builders help when it came to picking the parts and getting me started down the right path.
The Mother Board ASUS Maximums VII Impact mini itx The mother board was the first thing I picked out and this one stood out from the rest the moment I saw it. And I really feel that out of all the mini itx mother boards out there this one is the best! If you really want it all ASUS made sure you got that with this one. Even six months after having it, the mother board is always ahead of me when it comes to compatibility and solutions to adding more to the rig.
