    Nice. Low noise, lower power, small foot print without the awkward out jutting of the Asus mini cards. Would be good in a steambox.

    these mini-itx gfx i would like to see with 4gigs of ram if you want to run 1440p for more and more games at this range of cards, even ino that a GTX770/780/Ti would be better but also more priced.

    No way you can run such resolutions with a GTX 760, the GPU is too slow for that.

    Look at FPS rates in my results, not very playable. GTX 760 is for 1080p, not higher. Even if it had 4 GB it wouldn't be any faster, feel free to google around for reviews of 4 GB cards. I haven't reviewed any GTX 760 4 GB because I keep telling manufacturers it's a waste of money, so they won't send samples, because they expect a bad review.

    i know that without AA it don't look as good as with AA on, but looks playable to me.

    because i am thinking about getting a 1440p monitor later this year with the maskine i got now, but i don't play many new games anymore and i think that my GTX670 is doing fine.

    In that game it's ok. But Bioshock Infinite uses very little VRAM anyway, so no way you'll see a difference with 4 GB. If you don't want to believe me, go buy a 4 GB card and feel good about it.

    I believed games like Skyrim with ENB mod can benefit form more 4GB VRAM with 760 and CoD: Ghosts.

    Technically no, but it's fun messing around with those high-res mods for eye candy and benchmarking purpose.:toast:

    Doesn't this have the same "extra width" as Asus?

    Yes, I think the footprint is exactly the same

    How about taking a few points to all GeForce cards for not supporting MANTLE, just as you took several points a couple years back to Radeon cards which not supported PhysX.

    Fair is Fair.

    AMD are struggling to support Mantle at the moment, patience young one.

    The difference is that a number of games supported PhysX. Mantle just got its first supportive game today. It's not relevant yet. Also he didn't really take points off. It was just a bullet point.

    that was actually a good question and an answer since the cards almost look identical :lovetpu:

    Got my MSI 760 mini, sweet! If it's "louder" than the 650 it replaced, I can't tell. It's very quiet. (Newegg has $20 off + free S/H + free AC4 right now.)

    I submitted my bios which was not in the online database, 80.04.C4.00.AA
