http://www.rlsupplies.co.uk comes close with £203 for a 160gb hdd and different case. Hardest thing to find is a website that sells ITX cases Cheaply (Ebuyers £45 is about £20cheaper then anywhere else i could find) and sells the Atom 330 motherboard.

With the motherboard/case supporting 2.5 and 3.5 and ide and sata hdd's if you have one laying around you wouldn't need to buy one bring it down to £140

can you put a bluray drive in this and have enought processing power to play bluray movies?
#2
no we need to wait for a atom + ion motherboard to be able to support 1080p Blu ray

No, too underpowered. Will cope with some 720p files though.
#4
found 2gb of ram on ebay for £15 and a 160gb hdd for £25 on ebay both delivered

saving you £8 odd more and doubling the size of the hdd !!!!
#5
there not a case with a power brick so no fan needed?
#6

Thats true enough, although this site is actually (very) slightly cheaper for the case if thats all you are after.

As good as that deal is, and it is a good deal, especially with the Atom 330 included, Argos, bizarrely are doing the Asus eeebox for £199 + delivery - a little quidco.

http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Search?storeId=10001&catalogId=1500001501&langId=-1&searchTerms=eee+box

The advantage of this one is that there's no build for the technophobes and it's generally much smaller and looks better. The main advantage is that it comes with an operating system, XP Home. I know ubuntu etc. are all free and very good indeed, but the majority of people would prefer xp..

Argos is about the only place you can get them for this price for some mad reason.

The new eee boxes b204 and b206 are about to come here, but at a £100 premium above these, so grab em while you can guys!
#8
yeh thats a awesome price for the eeebox some pros and cons on both.

mine
has 2gb ram.
dual core atom
can pay 5-10pound more for a lot larger hdd

eeebox

has wireless card
has vesa sockets (tho most won't use this)
xp(worth £60 if brought sparately)
has keyboard, mouse
#9
also eeebox uses a lot less power!
#10
gary_rip
also eeebox uses a lot less power!


Not that much less.
#11
anyone know if this board will fit in a shuttle??
myshuttles just packed up shorting one of the pins in the 4 pin power supply
and melted the socket on the mobo.

For people who want Blueray support, use the same case, but substitute the mobo with

Also add

http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/AMD-Athlon-64-X2-5050e-Socket-AM2-Dual-Core-26GHz-512KB-x-2-Cache-Retail

And dont forget the motherboard above uses SODIMM so
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/2GB-DDR2-SO-DIMM-PC2-6400-(800)-200-Pin-Non-ECC-Unbuffered

Total comes to roughly
Case £45
Mobo £95
Proc £45
RAM £17
HDD £28
=£220 ish!!
For Blue ray drive, buy the external Blue ray drive on ebuyer for £65 odd..

yes it will run vista and office no problem.

i was tempted by ssd as well but something like that ssd only has read/write about same as a raptor.. which is alot cheaper per gb

think it be a while before ssd makes sense in desktops (laptops none moving parts, lower heat/watt usage would make sense though)

Can anyone say if this spec. is likely to be reasonably quiet?

Also according to the spec. for the motherboard it is not HDCP compatible. Won't this prevent it from playing blu-rays?

don't forget the free delivery from scan if ur a hexus member... i think it still works....!!

with free delivery from my orginal specs you could get scans 2gb ram = £17 and 160gb hdd for £30

the quietness really depends on the cooler you put on the cpu and the Case you choose.

Im pretty sure it must be hdcp compatible and that that is a typo... (i have a motherboard based on the previous generation to that motherboards chipset and that is hdcp compatible

Im voting the thread rather than the deal hot, as i think the eee box is probably a better buy...
#23
I always use Mini-itx.com, they have a massive range of cases and great customer service.

£170 for their Atom bundle... http://www.mini-itx.com/store/?c=44, nicer case but only the Atom 230.

I bought the Socket 775 bundle and added an E7400 Core2Duo CPU. It's wicked fast, quiet and TINY! :-D.

I've had a motherboard fail 11 months after puchase from them previously and they swapped it no questions - recommended!

Before christmas last year I built a cheap small media PC to watch HD content on and as there seems to be a few posts on HTPCs so this might be relevent to someone. I decided to build a Micro ATX setup in a super slim case as they're not thaaat much bigger than Mini ITX and "Nettop" setups but they're a lot cheaper and there's actually a little bit of room to add other components if needbe. Nettops have some novelty about them, they are tiny, and the Atom isn't a bad little CPU, but the problem with the Atom at the moment is that the graphics chipsets really let them down. Hopefully the ION will change that though!

So my HTPC setup... I managed to pick up a Gigabyte Micro ATX board with 780g integrated graphics, HDMI out and 4600+ AM2 CPU, blows away an atom and can playback all my HD content perfectly, also with a more conventional configuration like that there is a lot more upgradeability (there's a PCI-E port, AM2+ support, can take upto 16GB RAM etc). The case was a cheap Antec clone with a 220w PSU I found on ebay but in some respects was better than the official case and it's super tiny (smaller than most micro-atx HTPC cases) but can take a half height card if needbe, I replaced the PSU fan with a quieter one mind you. DVD Drive was a cheap ebay find and Hard Drive was a spare, these two parts didn't matter much since it's connected to a network. Whole setup consumes around 70w playing back HD video, if one opted for the energy efficient AM2 CPU this would be even less but power consumtion is not a big concern to me since it's not on all that much.

So the system looked like this:
4600+ AM2 CPU - £25
Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H Mobo - £60
2GB Patriot 6400 - £16
Slim Case + 220w PSU - £28
Sony DVD Rom Drive - £3
Hard Drive - £0 (Spare)
OS - Linux/XBMC

So about £130, and it's a pretty decent little system. I could have probably found the mobo a tad cheaper if I had gone for a second hand one. Point is if you can put a put a system together then shop around I guess and if not then shop around anyways, don't just rely on HUKD! As much as people seem to hate ebay here, check it out, along with trading forums because there are lots of places bargains can be had. :thumbsup:

The 780g is HDCP compliant. Everything with a HDMI port will be hdcp compliant.

And yes, will be quiet too, though not silent.

What about the OS, that is gonna add another £60-70 for Vista.

Voted Cold.

This is ludicrously expensive for such an under-powered machine.

DELL will sell you a prebuilt Vostro 220MT - Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5200 2.5GHz , Vista Home Basic, 1024MB, 160GB, Intel X4500, 16x DVD-ROM - for just £223 including VAT and delivery. eValue Code D032209.

The processor is much (much, MUCH !) quicker than the Atom system, as is the onboard Graphics (the Atom's Intel GMA945 is comically useless). And it includes an operating system, for just £50 more.
You'll want an additional 1GB of RAM to go inside it - http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/3274794/Kingston-KVR667D2N5-1G-Valueram-Computer-Memory-1GB-PC5300-DDR2-667MHz-240-Pin-Dimm/Product.html - for an extra £9.

Just to put things in perspective, the Atom chips perform comparibly to a 900MHz Celeron - a chip first onsale almost eight years ago ! They have no place in a desktop computer today.
#32
And the dimensions of the Dell are what exactly?

I think you miss the point big-time.
#33
pibpob
And the dimensions of the Dell are what exactly?

Irrelevent, because these are desktop machines, not laptops. Why would you want to decimate the machine's performance, just to save a few inches of space in your home !?

If you really really want a smaller-than-usual machine, then why put an Atom in it ? Grab yourself an Intel DG41MJ board http://www.kikatek.com/product_info.php?products_id=93972, and you've got Core2Duo and Core2Quad capability on a Mini-ITX board ... and funnily enough, it costs exactly the same as the ghetto-spec dual-core Atom board. You'll obviously need a CPU to go with it - but even the most basic £38 Dual Core Celeron - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/145259 - is an order of magnitude quicker than the Atom.

There are HDMI-equipped models too, if you're looking at video use - http://www.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/asmo-na/eng/385826.htm - but look at the approved chassis list before you begin - http://www.intel.com/cd/channel/reseller/asmo-na/eng/products/394803.htm

All these options make the Atom "Nettops" utterly redundant. They have no place on the desktop.
pibpob
I think you miss the point big-time.

That's exactly the case - there is no point in choosing an Atom for desktop use.

They have their place in Netbooks. I use an EEE 901 and the Atom is a perfect fit - it's tiny, light, and grants me have a 7 hour battery life ... and none of those things are remotely relevent for desktop use !
I repeat, why would you choose a desktop, offering performance comparible to an eight year old machine, when a modern system is just £50 more ?
(and if you place £50 on the value of the included Vista, then the modern system is the same price !!)

The single-core Atom can't even cope with YouTube's HQ clips - I think you underestimate how "well" it performs.
#34
hashman

No, not even close.

But see above - Intel make a bunch of Mini-ITX boards, and the HDMI equipped models are perfectly suited to HD playback.

Or, just buy yourself the £230 DELL above. Stick in a £30 graphics card with HD playback (any modern ATI or nVidia) and an HDMI output, and voila - HD powers.

Extremely slow. I'm running Vista and Office 2007 on my EEE 901, equipped with super-fast Runcore SSD and it's ... slow, but useable.

As above though, it's a silly compromise for a desktop - just put a proper processor in, for nominal extra cost.

So my HTPC setup... I managed to pick up a Gigabyte Micro ATX board with 780g integrated graphics, HDMI out and 4600+ AM2 CPU

Definitely the way to go :thumbsup:
Any "real" processor is a gazillion times more powerful than the Atom.

[*]Firstly a Cerleron 900mhz doesnt come close to a dual core atom, I know i have a 701 Asus EEE.

[*]Secondly yes a dual core atom has no problem with vista and office.
Saving space in the home is actually a great idea, have it sit under the monitor or under a tv set... I would love to see a Mid Tower(or even mini tower) sitting by someones home 40inch tv in living room would be comical.

[*]And Thridly this is a good deal as its competing against MSI and Asus Nettop not fully fledged desktop computers.

Hee Hee Vista on a SSD Atom bet you have indexing and restore and pagefile and auto save all turned on as well - Happy Computing:-D

There is a whole market out there for ATOM on the dekstop
Intel Atom is appearing in Keyboards etc etc etc

Just Because other people have different considerations from yourself it is no reason to dismiss a whole market.

Folks Like Quiet , Folks Like Robust , Folks Like Small , Folks like Good looking kit


The Intel atom is an everyday CPU for everyday task - Look at the impact it has had on the laptop market .

Are you telling me that it will have zero impact on the desktop market ?

You don't care - many do. Don't assume that your situation is the same as everyone else's - it's not.

Besides which, most computers are far over-specified for what they have to do. And for all those cases, they will work just as well as your Dell. The higher specification is the irrelevance, and a waste of energy.

Yep, I like exactly those things - and you can have them all with a proper processor !

The Intel atom is an everyday CPU for everyday task - Look at the impact it has had on the laptop market.

Everyday tasks ? The single-core Atom can't even cope with HQ YouTube clips, or the most basic of games. Hell even trivial tasks like the unzipping of files take huge amounts of time. Granted, the dual-core version is slightly more capable - but still an order of magnitude slower than even the most basic of today's dual-core Celerons !

I'm not sure what impact you think it's had on the laptop market ? It's certainly created a new class of Netbooks (and I love mine !), but Laptops are pretty much as they've always been - ultra-portables are still expensive, and basic machines (Dual Core, 2GB) are still cheap. Form factors haven't changed either.
I_SHOULD_COCO
Are you telling me that it will have zero impact on the desktop market ?

Yep, that's exactly what I'm saying. In a Netbook, it's brilliant - light weight, light consumption, low cost, small size, perfect.
In a Desktop, you can have all those things and have a proper processor too - so the Atom becomes somewhat pointless. If you can have your cake and eat it, then do so !
