Best Mini-ITX pre-built PCs 2022

Buying a pre-built PC can save time, but most go for a standard ATX form factor, so what if you want something smaller? Mini-ITX PCs are a bit of a niche, but there are still some pre-builds that will satisfy your hunger for performance and space-saving. We've rounded up what we think are the best Mini-ITX pre-built PCs in 2022.

The bottom line

Mini-ITX PCs are a bit of a niche, but these space-saving machines lose nothing in the way of performance, and you can still get the best hardware inside. There are great options, and buying a pre-built PC is a time saver. The MSI Trident X is the best overall recommendation. It comes from a trusted brand with a clever design but still uses standard parts so you can upgrade, not that you should need to for a while since the components on offer are fantastic.

There is also a fascination with how much hardware you can squeeze inside an ITX case, and as the technology has advanced, we're now in a position where a games console-sized PC can house some of the best graphics cards on the market, and the tiny MSI Trident 3 is the best example. Sticking with traditional tower cases, the Origin Chronos V2 carefully crams a totally customizable hardware configuration into its Mini-ITX form. Whichever route you choose, there's a tiny pre-build for you.
