    Hi all

    New here to the forums. So i have a list of the parts i think will go great for a PC build i wish to do someday. I have a macbook pro but i felt i needed a desktop PC for longer pieces of work for Uni. Also i enjoy gaming so i could use it for that if i wanted also.

    Anyways any of you PC guys out there take a look and see what you think.

    BOTTOM LINE- It is a mini ITX PC meaning it is alot smaller form factor wise than a ordinary PC. I want a graphic design PC, and i felt these are the best future proofed & durable parts available today for this Mini ITX PC Build.


    Parts list:
    -Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
    -Intel Core i5-4690K 3.50GHz (Devil's Canyon) Socket LGA1150 Processor - Retail
    -MSI Z97I Gaming AC Intel Z97 (Socket 1150) DDR3 Mini ITX Motherboard
    -Corsair Builder Series CX 600W V2 '80 Plus Bronze' Power Supply (CP-9020048-UK)
    -Corsair Hydro H55 Quiet Liquid CPU Cooler
    -Kingston HyperX Savage Red 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-19200C11 2400MHz Dual Channel Kit
    -Samsung 250GB SSD 840 EVO SATA 6Gb/s Basic - (MZ-7TE250BW)

    sorry for the late reply just a heads up for this one, Its best to pick Intel proc when you want a graphic designing PC. I think this specs is good enough though. I've recently built mine from scratch and it's still brand new and if you dont mind i got it from If you ever want to change some specs you can visit them here: PC Components.

    Looks pretty awesome. Good luck.

    I would try opt for a quad core processor though - but that processor is awesome.
