    Very nice, looks good to me! And of course the 9600XT will handle the games, silly man.

    Cool rig man. Why not upgrade to Silent X PSU and rip the full benefits of SFF?

    god i now have the money but for some reason things in my mind are saying forget the shuttle go big but i dont want to why is this i read about probs with the sng45 and it puts me off a bit

    other things

    currently have a fx5900 winfast in my system the shuttle will get a 9600 xt will i see a big drop in difference cant really afford a 9800

    will be a first time build for me and tbh a little scared lol built big system but never shuttle

    cant decide on the hard drive do i get the ata 133 8mg cache maxtor or go for the ultra quiet barracuda which is only ata100 but they say is one of the fastest around

    omg i aint it when you get to these crossroads lol

    If you can stretch to it buy a raptor 36GB or 74GB, I know the 36GB is a little small but the Raptors great performance make up for it.

    Just a little word of warning, i went through hell and back with my SN45G and 9600XT, and i RMA'd both the shuttle and the 9600XT and had the same problem, so i dont think it was a fault in either product, they just didnt like eachother

    Ive used TwinMOS PC3200 (2 x 256MB for dual channel) in both SN45G's that Ive built and it runs fine, afaik this ram just has problems with IGP nforce 2 onboard gfx. Both pc's pass memtest fine and run sweet.

    not too comfy with your ram selection. mushkin dual packs (blue line) are probably the most reliable and compatible for a ram-picky shuttle. the 4000 models are good. 2 x 256 being ideal. low latency and oc'd models are also available.

    If you're not overclocking go for Crucial ram, it's good solid ram with lifetime warranty but make sure you buy it from crucial directly to ensure compatibility. Lots of people use it in shuttles.

    If you are overclocking get some PC3200 Kingston HyperX or Corsair and go for 2 sticks rather than one for max. performance.

    Radeon wise make sure you get a 9600 with passive cooling.

    Hard drive wise go for the Samsung Spinpoint with is ATA133 and a lot cooler than the Seagate.
