    You’re not getting much more power in an ATX build if you’re only filling a 1080p display anyway.

    Absolutely not correct.

    Skullgirls, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R…

    All of which you can run on an ATX…?

    And also, most game-playing time worldwide is spent on games that are over ten years old and don’t need a lot of power.

    I don’t think you’re getting it. If that’s what you want you can get a Steam Deck for $350 that does that, only it’s portable and has a display and controllers…Same goes for a laptop. Or you could just buy an ATX that can also run more demanding games. This is not complicated. There are a plethora of better alternatives.

      Feel free to price out the build that beats these things by a wide margin.

      Try carrying around a dozen ATX machines while I carry around a dozen of these. You’ll see why TOs prefer the smaller, lighter machine.

      This is not complicated.

      It sure isn’t.
