I have tried two methods of streaming games from my main PC to my Linx12x64. I tried Steam and Moonlight.

:D 9/10 Steam worked really well, I got a full 1080p experience, the lag was negligible. You can stream non-steam games via this too. It s really easy to setup.
Bandwidth it was pulling at 15Mbps from my main PC.

:( 2/10 Moonlight (moonlight-stream.com) is an open source product that works with the Nvidia streaming capability. However, the PC client uses Google Chrome and was not a good experience at all. The lag was substantial, Chrome did noot use the GPU for rendering (even though I tried to get it to) and the mouse was unuseable (jumping all over the place). After tryng different configs etc.. I gave up and unistalled Chrome.

I've streamed games from my main PC to the 12x64 and its worked very well, there was hardly any lag and maybe a dropped frame or two every few minutes. It seemed best over a 5G WiFi network over a 2.4 (at least in my experience).

I also use Splashtop. Its not really ment for streaming games, but I dont care, I use it for that, :).
Works well and if your streaming to android or ios, you can bring up an onscreen joypad.

Moonlight is only good for streaming PC to PSVita.
