Yea, they make itx computers not much bigger than a medium size book (LIKE THIS), but you still need a monitor, keyboard and mouse to use it (and a place to plug it in).
How powerful do you want it?

edit: Here is an i3/ION one.

To play BF3 I don't think you would find a small desktop that could run it. Your best bet would be a gaming laptop.

Yeah if you want to play BF3, you would need to get a gaming laptop. I dont think there's anyone that makes an itx system powerful enough to even play it on low..

I'd just get the nxzt vulcan. Comes with a handle and can support m-atx boards so you can use better gpus and cpus:

It's pretty small to boot, fits reference 6950s somehow too.
