    Shall i build this Shuttle system?

    Build Me a Shuttle System

    Crucial 512MB DDR PC3200 -------- --------71.66
    WD 80 gig ------------------------------------- 58.01
    Shuttle XPC SN45G nForce2 Ultra 400--- 177.66
    GeForce4 Ti4200------------------------------- 69.27
    Barton 2500+ ---------------------------------- 72.73

    (i have cdburner)
    -------------------------------------------------- -271.67

    This lot is all from OCUK apart from the crucial ram...

    can anyone find me a better deal? and is the barton 2500+ a good choice of cpu?

    its a little over budget, but a couple of guys at work have just got the Tyan Tachyon Radeon G9600PRO and rate it as a really sweet card.. its £117 inc vat.. but so much better than the likes of a 9200 or the GeForce4 Ti4200

    apart from that its a good spec... was looking at a similar one meself.. until i decided that i really wanted a CM case

    I'd spend the extr £50 and get a 9600pro from ebuyer as it'll be able to play stuff like hl2, other than that its a nice spec

    btw if you ain't a gamer you might wanna consider buying an SN41 and using the onboard gf4 mx

    I want the 9600pro mentioned here as well. Seems like a really good deal for the money. I read that they come already overclocked and with tools so you can tweak further impressive

    Spend the extra if you want to play hl2 and doom3

    I would go for the Barton 2500 myself aswell.
    But I would buy from cpucity.co.uk to get a good core that can run in that shuttle at 3200+ easy
