Also the 760 has two more cores; it is double everything the 661 is, but with lower base clock and without HyperThreading.

I've been looking at these parts and the newegg reviews, and it seems there's lot of little adjustments needed. Some heatsinks don't fit, cable management is a nightmare, as well as heating problems. It makes sense, it's a small case. But I think an all in one is just easier to deal with.
It's not as bad as it seems really. I have build 2 mini itx rigs and it was pretty easy. There isn't a lot of clearance as it would be in a standard ATX case, but then again if one does things properly even in an ATX case you must take care of cable management and plan a good airflow. As far as my two build are concerned, they were easier to assemble than my main rig based on an ATX P180 chassis (which is dead silent, but a pain to work with). It must have taken me between 2 and 3 hours to build either of them without pushing like a madman.
Before making a decision look at these two reviews to see what you can do in an itx chassis:
/offtopic: I'm a bit against all in ones for one reason really - they are fixed and battery-less laptops, but their price doesn't reflect that. Since they have custom mobos and laptop components if anything brakes outside of warranty the whole rig is gone.
