Surprisingly that board achives some pretty damn decen't FPS rates on those games for being an ITX formfactor.

That is the type of thing you could mount in a SFF case on the VESA mount of your monitor and almost forget it was even there.

Then again something like a lowend i3 technically has 2x (or more) the graphics power just from the integrated Intel GPU, but if you REALLY need something as small as you can go for a HTPC or older game machine then this would be pretty sweet.

Nice, I was just looking in to rebuilding my shuttlePC to use as a media center/streamer and this would fit the form factor nicely :)

I can say I was quite pleased with the performance of this board. It exceeded my expectations. Very solid board.
