    Best Shuttle for my sis?

    She really just surfs the net. Am gonna build her a wee shuttle for her Xmas or something similar - anyone any recommendations?

    Was gonna slot in my old XP1700 which currently runs @ XP3200 in my water cooled rig.

    She talks on msn and surfs the net and thats about it so nothing spectacular required.

    Dunno if there is anything cheap and good looking - thought the Shuttle SN41G2 might be the best bet as the onboard gfx would be ample.

    cheapest shuttle @ the min that i know of is the sk41g £115 and there pretty darn good for basically anything from browsing the web to (with the right graphics card) playing pretty much anygame out there and the onbourd sound/lan is decent imho too, although the onbourd graffix sux itle do a decent job in most everyday stuff aslong as it doesnt have to calculate and produce heavy 3d geometry etc!

    Yep - you just can't fault the SK41G for sheer 'value for money' - it;s also one of the most reliable Shuttle XPC's to boot!

    I'd have to agree with Nigel there. You cannot beat it for value for money, SV25s still retail for more in places! Its prooved to be the most stable system I've ever owned and the lack of 333fsb support doesn't become a problem until you go above a 2400xp.

    Great little system which I hope is around for a while yet as it makes an ideal first SFF system.
