    The $700USD Challenge!!!!

    Do you guys think i could put together a shuttle for 700USD? i play some games ( i dont expect it to rock HL2 ) and normal day to day stuff. Amd would of course be the less expensive choice.
    If you guys have any input or direction it would be helpful. Any one out there have a reason i shouldnt get a Sff pc? i checked around and i can build a shuttle for the same as a desktop but i just cant decide which to go with. i could use the extra space that the shuttle would give me and its not like i cant gut it when i get board of it. SO please Toss some advice my way.

    SN41 has onboard, so if you're planning on using a gfx card then the SN45 is the best choice
