Summary: Small form factor PCs have become more and more of a trend. The traditional bulky PCs seem to undergo a transformation into something smaller. The good thing is that while the PC might get smaller, the performance remains superb. You can find many mATX / Mini ITX motherboards that will pack even the fastest high-end processors. Pop 8GB of memory on there, connect an SSD and then insert a graphics card like shown today. The end result will be a monster of a PC alright.
Summary: Yes, you've seen correctly, the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP is the first graphics card ever that I gave a perfect ten score. The stock GeForce GTX 670 provides already great performance, but ASUS has topped that by boosting it with a large overclock out of the box which catapults it beyond GTX 680 performance levels. Averaged over all our testing we see the card 1% faster than GTX 680 and 8% faster than GTX 670.
Pros: Faster than GeForce GTX 680, Whisper quiet in both idle and load, Very power efficient, Excellent memory overclocking potential, Software voltage control, Up to four active displays now, makes surround possible with one card, Support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1, Support for CUDA and PhysX
Cons: Memory not overclocked out of the box, Dynamic OC can't be turned off, Manual overclocking more complicated than before, No technology similar to AMD's ZeroCore power
