My System Specs


This reduction in size makes it perfect where portability is key, such as a LAN system, or small size such as a home theater PC.
Quoted directly from the website you posted.

HTPC's are being asked more and more to render frames in-game. They're being used as console replacements. Granted, they often don't need as much power as their desktop counterparts (less pixels on a TV compared to high end, large monitors), but still, a modicum of power is necessary.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
