I think you mean ITX; the only ITX boards I know of are made by VIA for VIA processors (used to be Cyrix). Most people use them for appliance-type devices like to record TV programs or something like that. The CPUs are not very powerful and the motherboards don't have AGP slots, so no they won't play games.

You might try a flex-ATX board if you're looking for something small and powerful. Shuttle puts them in their XPCs, and Aopen and Iwill make them too.
