    was it a completely pre-built system, or a home brew?

    A long time back now, VIA created the EPIA platforms, from which the

    Mini-ITX and Nano-ITX came.

    You can buy various peoples implimentations of Mini-Itx, each are 17*17cm. Small enough for you?

    Yes ideally home brew i know how much places charge for pre built media pcs what with them being all the rage

    I have just upgraded my desktop so have a few spare parts left DVD, HDD just wondering what graphics are like on these things

    Im not going to go crazy and stick a 8800GTS in a Shuttle but all of the games i have run on my GF6600 any onboard graphics up to that standard
