We all know EVGA as a purveyor of high-end motherboards and impressive Nvidia graphics cards, but here at Computex 2013 the company has reaffirmed plans to diversify by showing off the Minibox chassis/barebone PC.

Designed for the mini-ITX platform, the compact box isn't the most formidable in terms of appearance, but EVGA has incorporated a custom low-profile FSP power supply that's rated at 500W. This space-saving design leaves room for a full-size expansion card, with EVGA showcasing the system with none other than the GeForce GTX Titan.


Been waiting a while? Get Flash to see this player.

The ultra-small chassis has been redesigned since its first outing at CES following consumer feedback, and EVGA isn't finished yet - we're told the current version is almost final, but a few small changes may still make the cut prior to release.

There's no word on pricing as yet, but expect further details in the coming weeks as an air-cooled version of the Minibox will be made available as soon as next month, with a liquid-cooled variant to follow later this year.

Except nVidia states a minimum 600W PSU needed for the Titan so…. wishful thinking perhaps??
Well a 600W would be ideal, but the system won't draw anything close to 500W.
Interesting stuff - definitely planning on mini ITX for my next build so will look out for this. Frustrating that you can't really see any details in the video though!

nVidia is being very generous with that 600W because they (or rather, their lawyers) basically expect you to be a moron and buy a $10 ‘600W’ piece of crap which wastes half its energy on current conversion and voltage transformation.

As you can see in the video, a decent 500W will run a Titan no problem at all, hell it wont even break a sweat.
