    Buying A Shuttle

    Well i'm planning on getting a shuttle for christmas!
    And I have a AMD Athlon XP 2400+ processor spare, so I was wondering what shuttle and peices to get. I only want to download using this shuttle and burn to DVD disks. So it will need a 4x DVD burner.
    I don't care about graphics or sound. I just want something that will download, extract and burn.
    So if anyone could build me a shuttle especially for this job I would be grateful.
    Here are some things I would like it to have:

    512mb RAM
    40GIG Hard Drive
    On-Board Graphics and sound or whatever

    It has to be as cheap as possible. Less than £250 would be great, the moniter, mouse and keyboard are needed also. Thanks for your time.

    If you need anymore information on what I need or whatever just reply what you need and i'll tell you. This is for the UK also.

    I'd be careful on that stuff, not good, something like Crucial would do.
    Can't really do much better, i'd just advise against that stuff

    I need a flatscreen moniter, and about 512mb ram yeah. Aslong as it's quite fast I don't mind, aslong as it can downlod and burn like I said.

    Try keep it below £300 please



    I'm going to be looking at how to link the two moniters so I would only need my current mouse and keyboard, I press a button it switches to the shuttle, I press it again it switches to the pc and so on.

    Shuttle, Gubbins and TFT for £300........... doubt it.

    Personally I'd go for either the SN41G2 or a SK43G or maybe even a SN45G with a GF4 MX card which can be bought for pennys.

    Get some decent RAM.... Unbranded generic crap is known to have problems in Shuttles..... It possibly wont work! So get some value branded stuff. Geil or Crucial.

    If ya making a download machine... ya will need more than 40GB. And with the price of hard drives you might as well go for something like a 120GB........ Theres not much price difference between the sizes these days........

    Not when you can get a new one for about £140. Does it have to be shuttle? If not for the base unit you could get Biostar Ideq 200v for about £100 on aria.
