    Where's the best place to get SFF stuff from these days?

    I reckon in the Summer it'll be time for my dear mother to have a new PC (the Duron 800 is a bit slow now).

    Now she won't be touching Vista, so power isn't too much of an issue. I'm thinking a nice SFF system so as not to take up any desk space.

    But from where can one purchase such things?

    Spec-wise, it'll depend on when the upgrade actually takes place, but it'll probably be a Mini-ITX (and I've tried the obvious site for that, ta) or similar, with something Core2-ish in there.

    Ta.

    I'd look at either a shuttle type build, or go for something Via C7 based - if she is really a light user then they are more than powerful enough.

    I got my Via C7 on a Jetway board from Linitx.com i believe.

    I have an SN21G5 myself and am now contemplating passing that on when I retire it; it's my MythTV PC and in a year or so it won't be (i.e. once it's gotta do HD stuff)
