We have somehow got used to the fact that this computer gamers has a very decent size. After all, for today's video games with rich graphics needs, including powerful enough graphics card (and often more than one), but they are usually quite long and equipped with massive coolers. Furthermore, it should take care of quite effective cooling system components, which also requires space for the installation of the devices.

However, if you desire and some skill (as well as the necessary financial resources), it is quite possible to gather quite a powerful gaming system and not a gigantic hit. To prove this, enthusiasts with a resource Tech Report used a compact motherboard Gigabyte GA-H55N-USB3, made in the format of Mini-ITX, and a computer housing SilverStone Sugo SG07, intended for systems in small form factor.

On these components, we have previously written in the news. This motherboard is Gigabyte GA-H55N-USB3, built on the base of chipset Intel H55 and able to support interaction with the processors in the performance of LGA 1156, despite its compact size, has good functionality. Suffice it to note the presence of two slots for DDR3 memory 1666, expansion slots PCI-Express x16 and two ports of USB 3.0. In turn, the body SilverStone Sugo SG07 has dimensions of 222 x 190 x 350 mm and is equipped with a power supply at 600 watts, which, as it turned out well enough even for such a powerful adapter as GeForce GTX 470.
