    Question Shuttle system! Help plz!

    I've decided to get rid of my big case and get a sff one instead

    System:
    tagan 480w psu
    athlon 64 32000
    200gb hd
    xfi card
    x800gto2
    dvdrw

    I've been looking around and was considering a shuttle, but it doesn't have a pci slot and i would lose my xfi card.

    So i've looked at some cases and here they are:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=274609
    (bit cheap looking, read some reviews and to have an atx psu in would mean the dvdrw may not fit)

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=244420
    (v.nice looking, but a bit expensive)

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=212408
    (cheap, no reviews and no manufacturer website! >.<)

    Can anyone recommend anything? I would prefer to put the tagan psu in it.

    I looked at the antec aria, but the psu may not be enough and a few reviews say it has v.poor airflow.

    Also have to get a micro atx motherboard

    I'm thinking this..

    Any owners?

    Thanks

    The Gigabyte in your link is the best bet.

    Look into a case like this:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811124109

    It can be horizontal or vertical and it's pretty versatile. Comes with a decent Enermax PSU also, but if you are going for max performance you will need a Topower 350 PSU or better.

    I don't need a PCI slot so I use an SN25P. Absolutely amazing!

    Most shuttle's come with one pci slot so you can keep your your xfi card

    This would do you

    I use A Shuttle SN25P with the NF4 Ultra chipset, which is is the king of SFF. It doesn't have a PCI slot because Shuttle thought it would be good to put a 1X PCI-E instead. This is a stupid mistake on Shuttle's part because there is basically nothing you can do with a 1X PCI-E slot, not yet anyway.

    Shuttle does make a nice WiFi unit that fits in the upper left rear corner of the SN25P quite nicely, but you have to buy their custom unit. Maybe not so stupid afterall.

    The unit Gordy shows is fine if you will not be overclocking or using a highend videocard. If you want to do either of those things you don't want the ATI XPress-based Shuttle.

    As already mentioned, most Shuttles have a PCI slot. Try the SN95G5 if you want a black sff. I'd looked into this heavily in the past - sudhian.com has many people who have this model. V1 had issues, as did V2 for some others. The only model worth going for is the V3 IMO, but these are very rare in the UK. Due to this fact, and having a small budget at the mo, I actually sold my Shuttle SN41G2v2 for an Aopen unit. If the SN95G5v3 had been available, I'd have been tempted.
