Gigabyte launched a tiny desktop computer aimed at gamers earlier this year. The original Gigabyte BRIX Gaming system featured a 5″ x 4.3″ x 2.3″ case, an AMD A8 processor, and Radeon R9 graphics.

Now Gigabyt’e got something for folks who prefer Intel and NVIDIA parts.

The new Gigabyte BRIX Gaming DIY PC kit sports an Intel Haswell CPU and NVIDIA graphics.

The system is powered by a Core i5-4200H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 graphics. A model with a Core i7 processor is due out in August.

While the BRIX Gaming isn’t the most powerful PC on the market, it can handle 4K video playback and and should be able to handle 3D games.

Like most BRIX systems, the new BRIX Gaming GB-BXi5G-760 is sold as a sort of barebones device. It includes a motherboard, power supply, processor, and graphics. But you’ll need to supply your own storage and memory.

The system has an mSATA SSD slot, a 2.5 inch SATA 3 drive bay, 2 DDR3L memory slots, 4 USB 3.0 ports, Gigabite Ethernet, 2 HDMI ports, mini DisplayPort, and it comes with an 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 Mini PCIe card.

There’s a VESA mounting bracket in case you want to slap the system on the back of a TV or monitor.

The system doesn’t have an optical disc drive, so if you were hoping to use it as a Blu-ray or DVD player you’ll want to invest in a USB disc drive. And it’s not a fanless system — it’d be tough to keep a system this small cool unless it had significantly less powerful components.

  1. I guess for gamers, the super loud fan noise I hear about wouldn’t be that big of a deal.

  2. I always wonder if these things have normal desktop cards or mobile cards in them.

  3. ” it can handle 4K video playback and and should be able to handle 3D games”

    That’s funny , you can tell PCs are not your thing. Pretty much anything can play 4k video and for 1080p gaming it is ok for most ,it’s a 250$ GPU.

    Anyway, i wonder how the power brick is, it needs a bit of power with those specs and the entire PC is smaller than a standard ATX PSU.

    1. And we can tell that writing articles for a general interest site about small and mobile devices is not your thing.

    2. Research dosn’t seem to be your thing, seeing as the CPU is a Mobile Dualcore i5, and the GPU is actually the 760m which means it’s not a $250 GPU at all, neither in price, performance nor power consumption.

      So since this is basically a mid range laptop sans battery and screen it’s reasonable to assume it comes with a mid range laptop class power brick.
