I found this single slot gem: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814131433

Which has me wondering, how small can you build a gaming computer? I'm thinking mini-itx with one, or micro-atx with crossfire.

Unrealistically, I think a custom Cell MP setup would be as small as you can get, while getting good processing power, you wouldnt need room for much RAM, and could easily comp a really small vid card

The only problem is, we don't have any OSs to support the supercomputer architecture AND gaming >.>

well, except the PS3 OS <.<

Realistically: mini itx or atx methinks

Yeah, I'm talking standard parts and maybe a custom case.

You could make a cool faux-console case, if it's for gaming

with USB ports in the front, where the controller cable goes >.>

and then a wireless keyboard/mouse

It would be teh shit

That's pricey

and looks like a radio

but it's got a lot of nifty functions, and the remote is kinda cool

I like the minimalist cases though, gives you more cash for the fun parts

Useless functions is the key to any successful technology.
