So I managed to change the build a little bit. I'm now going to be mounting the microATX motherboard into a mid-tower case to achieve better airflow. I'm going to be stepping up the power supply from a 460W to a 600W. The new one has three rails, but there is not chance I will be pushing it past it's limits because the current components don't use anything close to it's maximum power. I couldn't find an ATX motherboard for about the same price so I'm going to be sticking with the microATX. I don't think it affects gaming, and there was pretty much no difference between that and a more expensive ATX board.
- Will it be more reliable now?
- Does the CPU bottleneck the GPU in-game?
