    The MSI GTX 760 Mini-ITX Gaming should definitely be on your short list if you are looking to build a SFF gaming PC or compact Steam Box. It runs quieter than any other compact graphics card we ever tested, yet still has enough power to play all the latest titles at full HD, with maximized settings.

    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?

    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
