ITX Workstation for Solidworks?

Hi,

 

My business is recently growing, and I require a new computer.

 

I wish to build a custom mini ITX that is really the smallest possible 3D CAD workstation possible.

 

I am thinking of basing on something like this Zotac http://www.ebuyer.com/283735-zotac-z68itx-a-e-z68-socket-1155-onboard-graphics-cpu-required-8-channel-audio-z68itx-a-e but with

- i5 750 that I can overclock

- Quadro Graphics or Intel HD Graphics

 

However, I am struggling to specify the right parts.

 

I want this to be small enought and light enough so that it is portable, and I can take it for client presentations etc.

 

My Dell M90 Notebook has died. So I really need a portable SolidWorks capable computer urgently.

 

Seems that a mini ITX might be the best way to do this. So has anyone had the same idea, and can anyone help?

 

Kind regards,

Bid
