A rough spec of 3k for mini itx rig. Maybe:

Intel i5 3470 RM559
GIGABYTE H77N-WIFI itx RM389
Kingston 8gb ram RM169
WD Blue 500gb RM164
Sapphire 7950 Vapor-X or Leadtek GTX670 RM1099
Seasonic S 620W RM299
Any DVD-RW RM59
Bitfenix Prodigy RM269

Total RM3007

Or you can try ask APES too, as WiLeKiyO suggested. APES bring good offer for bitfenix stuff smile.gif

For an even compact build... here's one.
i5 3470-RM559
ASRock H77 Pro4-M-RM289
Kingston 1x8GB Value RAM-RM169
WD Caviar Blue 500GB-RM164
Sapphire HD7950 Dual-X Boost-RM989 (Idealtech@Garage Sales)
Silverstone ST55F-G 550W 80+ Gold PSU-RM359 (Idealtech@Garage Sales)
Silverstone SG09-RM359
Silverstone PP05 Short cable kit-RM60 (Idealtech@Garage Sales)
Total: RM2948
Despite its mATX form factor, the dimensions are actually smaller than the Prodigy.
I have used a Silverstone PSU along with the PP05 kit so that the build would be less cable cluttered. Makes the build easier as well. tongue.gif

The casing will need slim dvdrw.
Somehow I saw some rig use external dvd writer instead of mounting it to the casing front side to make it looks more clean laugh.gif .

Yup only slim dvdrw can fit into sg09.
Yea external one and internal for slim type dvd writer are similar in price from some brand. But slim one will be slower for writing speed. If rarely use dvdd writer to burn files to dvd/cd, external usb type isnt bad too tongue.gif .

I prefer Jonsbo casing if it's air cooled. The reason I go for Prodigy is only because I will water cooled them. IMO, Jonsbo really suit me. Minimalism...

Yea Jonsbo casings are minimize lot.
But the interior design of some casings are bad. Airflow are very restricted, and the mounting of power supply seems not very good placed sweat.gif . Well, just personal opinion and It is cheaper alternative for small casings.

Nope. You would need to go for 2 GPUs...
...and unfortunately, your case can't do that, unless you are willing to spend RM3K+ on a 690. smile.gif
