    Question Cheapest small form factor system?

    Looking to build an AMD based small form factor system..
    Been looking around; seems like a Biostar & XP2200ish are cheapest.

    Planning to use it just as a second system (internet/general use) & backup (as HDDs are extremely cheap now). I also want a tiny TFT for it (below 15".. although.. 15" may do).

    Any advice? Seen any cheap components/shuttle systems around?

    Cheers.

    Bought my SN41G2 V2 off eBay. They've gotten a lot cheaper since Christmas.

    ohh aria & microdirect are within walking distance for me while I'm at uni.. so at least that means I'd save on delivery if I bought it from one of those two.

    Why dont you consider an Antec Aria micro ATX case paired with a FoxConn L8S760MG, costing around 120 from Microdirect. Cracking looking case and skt 754 performance. Only downside would be the cost of the processor.
