    So a while back I made a thread I wanted to build a mini itx pc
    I decided on buying a 7950, I already have the ram/hdd the ram being 1600 and psu which is 630w

    What I need your help with is picking a mobo, cpu, case,

    Please keep it under $400 if possible, I plan on splurging on the cpu a bit since itx mobos dont coast alot.

    Thanks :)

    Parts I have picked out

    What's the make and model of the PSU? If you don't mind me asking, of course.

    i7-3820 is LGA2011, and will not fit in H77 (LGA1155) motherboard.

    No, LGA1155 goes all the way up to Core i7 too.

    If you want that H77 motherboard, you should be getting i7-3770 instead.

    So something like this?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116502

    I kinda wanna build this as a gaming rig as well as a media streamer, my main concern is not really needing a i7 and put the extra $100 towards the gpu though it's only around $250 now days.

    I wanna keep this small and portable as possible.

    You may need i7 if you plan to stream to multiple device at once, since streaming means real time video encoding.

    GPU wise make sure you can fit it in that case.
