Goal of this build: Utilize the Raidmax Atomic mini-itx case which was gotten for $0 after rebate. This is a nice looking little case, but the acrylic panels can be scratched by a soft fart in the room over
I had to be super thrifty, but I got all of the parts for the prices shown (after rebates).
Intel Pentium - $53 after rebate from MicroCenter. In the realm of budget processors it's either the x4 athlon or the pentium, and for single core applications the pentium is the clear winner.
Asrock H97 - $60 after rebate from Newegg. No complaints here. Built in wifi and a nice bios menu.
A-Data Ram - Free after rebate when TigerDirect was a thing
OCZ 120GB SSD - $25 during black friday sales last year. Hasn't failed me yet
Corsair 430 - Budget PSU for a budget build. Doesn't set my house on fire which is a plus.
Let me know what you think! Please let me know if I can/should overclock on this MB.
