I’ve had an Intel motherboard and a Core 2 Duo sitting around for a while, and recently upgraded the graphics card in my main computer from a GTX 670 2GB to a GTX 770 4GB, so I decided I would build a portable gaming computer, as my main system weighs in at around 45 pounds and is not the easiest to transport.
Case: Cooler Master HAF XB Evo
Motherboard: Intel DG35EC – microATX
PSU: Corsair CX600 600W
RAM: 4GB Crucial PC2-6400
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8300 – 2.83GHz
CPU Cooler: ARCTIC Freezer 11LP
GPU: EVGA GTX 670 2GB GDDR5
The motherboard does not natively support USB 3.0, so I also ordered a USB 3.0 host card with 20-pin internal connector.
I might add the anti-dust AC filter foam if I find it necessary.
