Hi all

Thinking about a poss mini itx with a vesa mount for behind my tv

My concern is wattage I have not found a mini itx vesa with more than 300w

The above is my safe option with the poss of a half decent graphic card to play cod and battlefield 4 when funds permit

So safe or the vesa

Thoughts appreciated

the best way to go is with the corsair 250d. As you said no way you can get a good mini itx vesa without sacrificing performance.. If you're going to be using applications and doing intensive stuff like video rendering, the i7 and 16 gigs of ram are ok, but if this build is just going to be use as an HTPC and for gaming it would be overkill as the i5 and 8 gigs of ram are more than plenty.... If so save your money and go with something like this,
