StreetFighter IV Benchmark
1280 X 720 => 143.98 FPS

1280 X 720 => 2472

You can see the 3D performance increase 3-4 times more after using Radeon HD 7700.
General ITX Case is designed for saving space. You only can use short or Low Profile cards.
You have to put this into your consideration.

Power Consumption
Enable C1E, Enter to OS Desktop - 24W

Disable C1E, Enter to OS Desktop - 33W

Enabling and disabling CPU C1E power saving cause 9W difference.
It?s about 37.5% power saving.

Running LinX to make CPU full speed - 51W

Running OCCT Power Supply Test - 70W

CPU full speed and CPU+GPU full speed are 19W different.
It means HD Graphics 2500 full speed will consume 19W.

Adding AMD Radeon HD 7700 and running OCCT Power Supply test - 95W

After changing to AMD Radeon HD 7700, power consumption increases 41W.
AMD Radeon HD 7700 consumes less power in general usage. It?s quite power saving.
Intel latest ITX platform is saving power dues to 22nm manufacturing.
Many ITX Cases bundle with 150~200W Power Supply which are enough for general use.

1.B75N uses black PCB for better texture
2.Dual LAN and dual HDMI for better video and network transmission.
3.Built-in Mini PCI-E slot to install WiFi card
4.Using 22nm entry dual core CPU, the temperature and power consumption performance is good.
5.DDR3 max clock and integrated GPU performance also improve by Ivy Bridge structure.

1.Price should be more competitive.
2.DDR3 1866, enable XMP, only shows DDR3 1796

Performance ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 80/100
Components ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 83/100
Specifications ★★★★★★★★★☆ 86/100
Appearance ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 82/100
C/P Value ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 84/100

GIGABYTE launched H77N WIFI and B75N LGA 1155 ITX both are competitive.
Comparing to the others, the specs are impressive and price is also acceptable.
Especially, H77N WIFI bundles BT4.0/WiFi card and antenna, the price is just a little bit higher than B75N.
For users has WiFi demand, it?s a good C/P value ITX MB.

All major MB brands have several ITX MBs in the market and price is very reasonable.
Just like B75N, it is little higher than other Micro ATX B75 MBs.
In the past, ITX MB price was 50~100% more than M-ATX.
Parity ITX platform is a trend, if you would like to build a small PC or HTPC. :)

Windwithme has 5-6 athletic shoes.
I just bought one basketball and one running shoes. I will make a review as I have free time.
ADIDAS CROSS 'EM basketball shoes. After trying on, the price and comfort are both good.

The other is ASICS GEL-KAYANO 18. I make quite much research and try on before buying.
The online reviews are very positive. I hope my first ASICS try can be a good experience.
