My $$ is on dual 7850s. ASUS should sell this tech to MAC, it has MAC written all over it.

The wife is the gamer in our house, I ended up that way not by choice but by Marrying a nerd :P haha

Plus I only game on 1 27" 1080p display now so raw power is no longer needed.

but just wait I will be putting up a insane for sale section this weekend. 6970's, Crosshair V's, FX CPU's oh my :P

Definately could fill a niche role in the market in ultra quiet and ultra thin with some power. I have a buddy watercooling his PC and it runs pretty much dead quiet but he still can't stand it so he puts it in his closet and runs slightly longer cables lol

It's definitely a niche product, since there aren't many who'd give up ALL internal expansion card abilities. Maybe it's designed to be duct taped to a touch screen monitor to give you the ultimate Windows 8 all-in-one Metro gaming PC

The 8-pin CPU connector is still near the top of the board. Is that 2x8pin + 2x6pin PCI-E power lining the bottom of the board? It's enough power for GTX 680s or 7970s assuming they won't overheat and desolder themselves.
