    Please read the whole first page before commenting.
    The HP ProDesk Mini you linked to looks much inferior to the Zotac deskmini that I linked to in the first post.
    So far, nothing you posted has helped me in any way.
    I already know how to use the deskmini to make a PCI-e 3.0 x4 external gpu.
    I was asking for something better than that.

    I literally answered the question you asked in the OP which was:

    And you changed your objective mid-thread by going mATX when the title says "Tiny Mini-PC". There's no need to be rude to people who are just trying to help you.

    Get over yourself.

    The original objective was and still is a tiny PC with discrete graphics. When no one replied, I found a solution myself.
    More than one month later, you come along, and you think you are "helping".
    I don't want a core i3-6100T. I don't want more pci-e 3.0 x4 builds.
    I don't want low quality comments filling up this discussion.

    I looked at more than 50 PC cases, including custom cases, before buying a case, all without any help from anyone here.
    Zotac makes a deskmini PC with discrete gpu but it uses a mxm graphics card.
    Problem with mxm cards is they are expensive and supply/choice is very very limited.

    I just saw this in the news. I'll bet its pricy though.

    Intel plans to release Quartz Canyon workstation NUCs with replaceable GPUs
    The Quartz Canyon series will feature the first NUCs that allow users to add high-end GPUs. The systems are advertised as workstation kits due to the inclusion of Xeon E and Core i7 vPro CPUs. Other features include dual Thunderbolt 3 connectors, Wi-Fi 6 interface, Optane and ECC memory support, plus an internal 500 W power supply.

    Weight: For anyone planning to fly with a desktop in a carry-on bag, don't forget to check the carry-on weight restrictions of the flights you plan to take. I think international flights, especially on airlines with long flights (transoceanic, transcontinental), tend to have stricter requirements. Airlines with flights that make multiple stops, or that visit places with short runways (islands, mountains), might also have stricter weight requirements.

    The author of this page found some limits as low as 5kg in coach.
