  • Barebone, Setup almost finished. Any suggestions?

    Well I have some money left and I want to build a new PC.
    I'd really like to have a Barebone which would sit next to my water dispenser on my desk




    Shuttle XPC SB61G2V3 Silent-X
    Intel P4 S478 BOX 3200 MHZ Prescott (Does it have HT?!)
    DDR PC400 1024MB TwinMOS CL 2.5 Dualkit
    MSI MS-8937 FX5900XT-VTD128 RTL

    The prices (same order as above):
    228,99 EUR + 228,00 EUR + 163,88 EUR + 198,99 = ~ 819 EUR (999.218 USD or 558.997 GBP)

    I know I can't get a perfect PC for ~ 820 EUR but tell me what you think

    The prices were taken from one single Onlineshop.
    That's the end of that!

      A 3.2 does have HT.

        Prescott processor will burn out the power supply in the Shuttle. It consumes too much power. You'll be better of a Northwood P4 3.2. They are OK in a Shuttle. I've had one running in sb62g2 for a while now.

            Can't I use a new power supply which provides more power?

                Well, since its the same performance as a normal pc, and the only real notable difference is size, what other reason would you need?

                  Its the size and the fact that they become much more portable. Thus they rule for LAn gaming or for those who arent sure about a laptop but require a protabe pc

                    Yepp, that's the reason

                    I need to find out if there are any power supplies for a Shuttle Barebone that can handle a P4 3200. I will contact them on that
                    That's the end of that!

                      i'd also worry about heat, there is hardly any ventilation in them and the power supply is fanless so can't support alot of stuff going through it.

                        They will handle a P4. I have one 3.2Ghz and one 3.0Ghz. They just have to be Northwoods. The Prescotts consume too much power.
                        Head over to http://sfftech.com and search for the review that they did of a Northwood in a Shuttle. You can't change out the PS unless you mod the heck out of it.

                        No worries about heat. The heat pipe does its job.

                          Ok, thank you for that link. I've found out a 'Prescott' is actually a bit cheaper but I'll get a 3,2 Northwood
                          That's the end of that!

                            You will like it. The Shuttle especially. They are great for lan parties. Make sure you spend the extra dollars and get a carrying case.
