    If you turn the shuttle off, you cant play radio or cds or any other stuff. Thats the MSI's big advantage if you want a all in one type living room system.

    Looks better than the old one too!

    Make one yourself!

    I would love to, but wouldn't know where to start (apart from knowing what eq I'd need).

    It does look rather smart though, but I agree with Knoxville, I'd rather have a shuttle.

    It isn't a Shuttle.

    News has it that this is there last SFF. Since they have had serious issues with cooling, and never properly resolved the bugs from their previous POS 651, we could see an end to MSI before the year is out.

    Correct, the new MSI SFF's are just re-styles of the original 651 - except with new chipsets. Serious cooling issues arose with the 651 when used with an AGP graphics card.
    The innards of the new models I saw at Computex looked unchanged & no-one on the MSI stand could give me any info to indicate otherwise....

    looking at this, there aren't many options. hush atx is yet to be released, the matx isn't very powerful. you're left with getting a CM 630 series case and silencing it the best you can.

    AMD's are known to be that little bit hotter.... since the MEGA PC has a heat issue... its best to stop away from AMD's until they have perfected the design
