I pretty much play these games right now: Planetside 2, LoL, Minecraft (heavily modded), every Blizzard games, Skyrim, Dragon Age, Portal 2, GTA V, Rocket League, etc etc... I play mostly Minecraft right now and its quite laggy. Average FPS is around 25-30 with some frustrating stuttering. I've got a nice 144hz gaming monitor to make motion blur and stuttering to stop, because my eyes are quite sensible and I absolutly wanted a screen that makes games really smooth. But my PC is too old to make it happen.
So, I wish to have a small PC (I would like to carry it room to room, just like you would with a console, but its not my wish to have a console size gaming PC). ^ My actual gaming rig is quite big, heavy and noisy. I wish to have a smaller, lighter and quieter rig. I would like to reuse some parts that I already have, such as RAM, all disks, and if I need too, even the case and PSU, but I'm sure I can find a light small case for cheap. The simpler, the better. And the cheaper, the greater. I didn't think of a budget, but I'm not gaming as I used to be. I would love to have a rig that I can get good FPS with nice graphics. I don't have a budget, but I'm pretty sure I can get something good for 500$ (CAN). If I only consider Mobo+CPU+GPU w/ all the others parts I alreavy have, what do you suggests?
Sorry for the bad english btw..
Edit: I've been looking from Micro ATX to Mini ATX and I don't really know how to choose. I'm not too sure how works the performance and cooling factor. I'm not sure either how to choose a case and make sure everything fit in it, and that its cooled enough.
