Im trying to build a mini itx or matx.

 

Getting a case is easy, but finding budget mobos is almost impossible.

 

Im using an i3-6100, I wanted to keep the case and mobo under $200 but its proving impossible.

 

Is this the cheapest mini ITX mobo at $170?

 

Asus H110 Mini ITX mobo

 

I looked at MATX and really its no cheaper than building mini itx due to price differences in motherboards.

MATX is a more common size and can be had for cheaper. Here is the M-ATX equivalent of the board you listed:

Or an ASRock - http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=MBDASR3001&name=ASRock-H110M-HDS-Intel-H110-Chipset-for-Socket-LGA. -$113.

 

Get a case for around $100 and you are close to on budget. Also check PriceSpy for deals.

 

*EDIT* Maybe a case like this which is on the cheap side but would bring you in under budget with one of the above MOBOs - http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=CHANTW0004&name=Naratechwin-I-4B-USB-3.0-Mini-Tower-mATX-Case--USB. Or this one: http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=CHAINW3021336&name=Inwin-EM040-Mini-Tower-Chassis-120mm-Fan.
