EVGA is targeting the LAN gamers with the Mini ITX Box

EVGA is a brand that was once best known for graphics cards, but that has branched out to include power supply and motherboard lines. However, CES is now looking to branch out into a new sector of the enthusiast market: small form factor machines.
 
EVGA showed off its Mini ITX Box, which supports both traditional air cooling and water cooling. The chassis comes equipped with a 500W power supply, a bay for a vertical mounted slot-loading optical drive, dual USB 3.0 headers up front, and the chassis itself can accommodate full-length graphics cards.
 
The Mini ITX Box is still in the prototype stage, so the design/final details may change between now and when it official launches. We weren't given a confirmed launch date for the Mini ITX Box, but we expect that it will ship in the latter half of 2013.

PCI Express card

That video card looks like it would be pretty darned tough to connect the PCIE power connectors to.

Not sure what you mean since the second picture shows all the power cables sitting in front of the card.

The cables themselves would have to be very tightly bent to be able to have the case side on, if that makes any sense..

Building in SFF cases is never easy. However, this is a prototype. If EVGA is smart then they will include cables that are a proper size and length for the case. They could even go so far as to have plugs with L-shape brackets to better fit inside the space. Shuttle cases had custom parts like that. My Corsair case has things like SATA cables with an L-shape plug to fit around the tighter spaces behind the backplane, etc.
