Buy computer parts online

I am building an ITX desktop pc recently. I am using In WIn A1 plus case. In order to fit in the case, I plan to use this graphic card: https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX78846. But it is out of stock online. I am not able to find it anywhere else.

I am also having trouble finding the mini-ITX motherboard to fit the case. I plan to use X470 chipset. If I can find X570, it would be also fine. But now I can only find B450 from pc-Canada. B450 is ok with 3700X. But I don't really want to use it. If I choose B450, probably I will downgrade my CPU a little to 3600X.

Basically I checked websites: Newegg, memory express, Mike's computer shop, canadacomputers, pc-Canada and amazon. Does anyone know any other online websites in Canada or in the United states that can ship to Canada?

Thank you.

Do you plan on using SLI?

Hint: That's not possible if you plan on getting an ITX motherboard. Therefor there's no point in getting an X470 motherboard. Look at the quality of the VRM's and heatsink on it. If you don't require PCIE 4.0 for your graphics card or NVME SSD you can settle for B450 motherboard. But again maybe the VRM's are better on an X570 board?

Bottom line: It doesn't matter whether you get B450, X470, X570(unless you want PCIE 4.0). Look for the motherboard with the best VRM's and whatever else you need to be on the motherboard.

The case appears to be fairly flexible when it comes with GPU length with a max of 320mm fit. and it should also fit most ITX sized motherboards. If you want X470 or X570 ITX motherboard you will have to pay $300+. Stock appears to be an issue currently as well. A B450 board should be able to handle 3700X ... some might have issue with a 3950X though... but a 3700X shouldnt be a problem at all.

I recently bought an B450 ITX mobo from Vuugo. I never heard of them until I saw them from pcpartpicker. Shipping was quick, but still had to pay $13 within the GTA.

Whatever you do avoid Memoryexpress like the plague, nothing about them is "Express" it should be MemoryHastles.com .... nothing "express" about the company and all I see is Hastles.
