    Lightbulb Shuttle picture panel....

    Hi all,
    Just a quick question, I'm sure most of you will know the answer, but I'm looking to build a sff for a (girl)friend of mine, and she's a massive Tweetie Pie fan, so I wanna put her a Shuttle or similiar together with a stealthed optical drive and a picture of tweetie. So....for $64 million - what models of Shuttle let me do this easily? Then I can start....

    Cheers!

    no problems.... the hardest thing to decide is do you go for AMD... or Intel?

    once you've decided that... then ya need to decide which Shuttle to go for... some have onboard graphics... some dont.... are they a gamer? or is it just going to be a pc for general tasks i.e. Word processing, internet, etc...

    Shuttles are fantastic little PCs... i just wish i could afford more of them.. i want lots!! 1 for the car.. 1 for the kitchen... 1 for the living room. lol.

    The young lady isn't a gamer - just general really, but she's a damn good mate so I want to give her something a little more unique that she'll use and enjoy, so to speak.

    Was thinking probably AMD with on board graphics....SN41G or something!?!?

    problem with the SN41G2 is that it isnt a one where ya can put the custom picture on the front.... so you could possibly look at the SN45G with a GF4 MX AGP graphics card... GF4 MX graphics cards can be bought for about £25 these days... very cheap and alright performance for the price.

    Or get a Shuttle SK43G. Although I personally would go for the SN45G with the GF4 graphics card....

    If you get her a shuttle she will love you!

    just get some red/pink cathodes for inside too and she will be the most impressed young lady around

    Actually Shuttle has a kit that lets you put pictures on the front of G2 XPC's.
