Managed to finally get the setup I've been eyeing for quite a while. Managed to score all my components on sale which brought the cost of this setup significantly down. 

Entire setup is unbelievably silent even under load. The Zotac AMP Box Mini was a great choice due to the ease of setup, the price in my country, supporting up to 1060 which is more than enough for my needs but allowing for future upgrades. I'll be planning to setup an external monitor but for the time being the internal display performance hit doesn't bother me as it is minimal.

 

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
