$1500 Mini-ITX Gaming PC (w/monitor)


Jun 2, 2017
Hey guys! I have a build I've always wanted to do and can now finally do it. My goal with this build is to be able to play games at a nice smooth pace while having the system be small and portable. (Note that I have already bought the case so that is the one I am using for the build)

I guess the main question I have would be about cooling and the noises of the fans. I don't mind a little noise but I would rather keep it as silent as possible while maintaining decent temps. I do plan to oc the ryzen just a little.

I mostly play competitive games but sometimes I'll go over to my girlfriends house and we would just hook up controllers to the pc and play some casual co-op games. Her TV isn't too big or anything like that. I believe the resolution is 1080p as well.

I know that the 2070 is overkill for 1080p but I plan to upgrade to 1440p later down the road when I upgrade my CPU as well.
