That's not that bad. Shuttle makes great stuff. Wonder what kind of PSU it has. Think it'd be a full ATX PSU?

That they do GJSNeptune. Although the price is a little steep. The case is top notch though and its got some choice hardware. Wonder why they didnt opt for an AMD option and an Nvidia 8800 GT/GTS (g92) 9600 card?

I agree. Even if you wanted to buy a pre-built, there are much better options out there, like Maingear. It's always the same story with Shuttle, they overprice their products and hope people will fall into their trap. :shadedshu Not this guy!

It'll be an extremely efficient proprietary PSU. Shuttle have come along way with their barebones, nobody can match them in the SFF arena. Hence why I have 3... :rockout:

Who invited Yoda?

People with lots of money to burn will buy this, no doubt because it is the awesomest thing in the world to have the smallest and coolest looking thing in the world.

I'm sure it is very high quality (it better be), but I'm fine with my nonamer FrankenPC.

Even though I'm mad about my Shuttle (and SFFs) I must admit the lack of room has brought me to move back to ATX however that doesn't mean I have to go back to a stupidly large chassis. The great thing about Shuttles is the fact they can fit all the performance of a tower into something the size of a shoebox.

Yeah it's expensive but you're paying for innovation not a name. However, these pre-built Shuttles to me, defeat the point of building one. That's where the fun is for me. However, their target audience are people that are looking for a high-performance machine without the large foot print. For that they have to pay a premium price - then again, the chassis, the motherboard and PSU are included in that. So, depending where you buy it from, it is relatively good valve for money, well the barebone(s) anyway.

That's why I'm going to a Lian-Li A05b from a PC-65b. Way smaller but just enough room for ATX and even a Tuniq Tower.

Weirdly that's the exact case I'm moving too. It's so fuckin' awesome I'm buying it now before I even need it just so I can look at it and start my modding. It's only to be completely ninja.
