If cheap Ram, PSU, and cooling don't bother you then sure it's an acceptable start.

  • with the monitor sold separately I'd rather build an R5 with quality parts.

There's a 500-watt power supply in the part list, but a 400-watt in the second picture...

In the future rookie don't cheap out on the power supply, it limits future upgrades of the video card. A good rule of thumb is to buy one that is 60% of your usage.

My first build was in a Rosewill case. Five years later I go to add Hard drives to it and find the plastic noise damping grommets have deteriorated. Never again.

BTW what price range would you say a cheap motherboard is?

Windows 10 is more popular, but Mac OS is Safer and therefore better in my opinion. I would want my Bank or my Hospital to run Mac OS, but not my friends and family.

It's this month according to an article I just read: http://www.techradar.com/news/amd-vega-release-date-news-and-features-everything-you-need-to-know

But it will probably take quite a bit of fine tuning to get it just right similar to the Ryzen line up. Then there are the youtube reviewers it will probably take them about a month to get their **** together and give us an accurate performance review.

I can wait till Christmas so my family can hopefully help me with my budget and most of the AMD bugs are worked out, but the thought of building a system with key components built that year [staff removed]!

If your budget is 187$, why wouldn't you go for a quad core?

Scrape up an additional pound and get the Superior i5-6500.

The R9 series is a power hungry line in general coupled with a power hungry AMD chip that is probably over clocked leads me to say no.

most games aren't optimized for SLI

if you insist on SLI up your PSU, 76 watts to spare when you obviously plan to over clock is not a good idea. 1000 watts minimum.

H110 no no

B150 over H110 for better Ram options? LOL RAM speed mainly counts when it comes to integrated graphics. Planing to run a business; I'd take the cheaper option at the time with decent user reviews.

Number three comes down to what you stand to profit and what your customer plans to do. I will say this the H170 chip set is on par with the Z170 the difference is the OC ability in my opinion.

Give yourself some credit you did your excellent research though i would like you to define this: " the mITX build would need to be capable of switching low end parts to high end parts and the chipset not be a blocker". Mainly that blocker part.

No avoiding it, theoretically you should have had plenty of headroom with that 750 watt PSU from EVGA. This is either one of those "**** happens cases" or a lack of experience deals. That benign said don't over clock your CPU the gains are minimal (10% vs 1/3rd in 2000) at best and not worth the added strain it puts on your hardware. Besides that CPU's strength far exceeds that of your GPU and most games now days are more GPU intensive.

overclocking demands more power, so it is within the realm of possibility's.

Luck for you EVGA stands behind there product and will replace your PSU if you call them.

I would trouble shoot this by taking electrical load of the power supply. Your video card is probably the biggest load is your GPU followed by your over clock.

Closely inspect your mother board capacitors for leakage or that blown corroded battery look. That signals its toast.
