    Question What's the cheapest...

    Just interested:

    What's the cheapest SFF system (barebones) that I could put together for gaming. We'd probably be talking a mid range Athlon or P4 and a Radeon 9500/9600 to make it gameable, so that immediately pushes the price up, but I just wonder how cheap I might be able to get the bits for it.

    Cheers then,
    Unts!

    SS51G and SK41G are the least expensive Shuttle XPC's available. The SB51G is also cost-effective and offers a bit more on the overclocking side...
    70 hours a week is not enough

    You can get the SK41G for £116 from microdirect at weekends. Damned good price, if you don't mind me saying.

    Interesting, might look at that when I have some coin.

    Cheers.
