ASUS unveils GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini graphics card

ASUS unveils GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini graphics card destined for little rigsIt's easy to chop and change components in spacious towers, but small PCs need upgrading, too. If your stunted desktop has fallen into the "minimum system requirements" category for the latest games, then maybe the newly announced ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini graphics card will interest you. Quite the mouthful, we know, but its long name contrasts with its small size -- the dual-slot, 2GB card measures 6.7 inches on its longest edge, shaving almost 3 inches off the reference design.

Glamor shots and all the finer specs are available at the source links below.
