    Question Shuttle PC's

    Not sure if this is the correct forum, apologies if it isn't.

    Its a simple question really, are Shuttle PC's a viable option for a gaming PC? At the moment I have a laptop (Specs in sig) and I like the portability of it, unfortunately its outdated. If a Shuttle PC is a good alternative that would be great, as its not as constrictive portability wise as a full blown desktop PC.

    Any help much apprecaited.

    Re: Shuttle PC's

    I have a friend who has a shuttle PC as a gaming machine, id expect it'd be harder to fit some newer graphics cards in some and youd need good cooling as there quite small cases

    Re: Shuttle PC's

    Depends, some are some arent, MA_Hat used to run a Shuttle and it was fine, depends on where the GFX slot is, some are on the outside edge of the board meaning any gfx card cooler is going to be real close to the side of the case which will make it noisey as hell...

    Re: Shuttle PC's

    Cheers for the feedback, the general consensus is they're decent but have their constraints due to the size restrictions. I'll do some more research before I jump into the deep mind.

    Re: Shuttle PC's

    have a look at the silverstone SG01/2 cases
    uATX boards - full size ATX PSU upto four slots possible - (dependent on board)

    Not as small as the shuttle but pretty small - bags etc available

    I've got the SN26P, max out with memory, drives and a 8800GTX. It's plenty fast enough for most stuff....

    yeah they sure can.

    As has been said already be careful with video cards dependent on which model you choose.
