Any ideas for a mini gaming PC?
Does anyone know of a mini gaming pc build for around 500 dollars or less? The most powerful one I can get as I will be playing many games on it. Thanks!

That doesn't look like it's capable of running Skyrim or Deus Ex: Human Revolution with it's processor, or is it?

By "mini" are you referring to the size of the PC itself or a small/cheap build?

Agreed, I'm looking to build something similar: small, stylish, powerful, a computer you can take with you on the go but still be powerful enough for current games.

The .625 tier build can run skyrim max settings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z93t7autj...re=related. And the guy is using a lower quality videocard to boot.

But if you got 500 to spend, tier 1 seems to be an excellent choice. However just make sure to get a MICRO atx motherboard that will allow you to fit it in a smaller case.

Keep in mind that he's playing on a lower resolution monitor.

The guy said this in the comments

"yep DDR5 , and Im playing at´╗┐ max res. for my monitor 1440x900 (19-inch)"

Wouldnt that most likely mean hes using an HD 19" monitor?

his resolution is 1440x900 it's HD but still a lower res. for example I can play skyrim maxed out with 50-60fps on my 1360x768 tv, but not on my 1920x1080 monitor.
