Nice. A little machine for your kidz to prat about with. Could even stick some cheap new parts in it or just use it to surf the web \ download stuff without risking your main computer.

Personally it might be a nice little machine to mess about with Linux on.

Pity it's a hot p4 in such a small case.
You can't fit any other m/b in the shuttle cases either, can you?

The only downsides are - agp not pci-e, SATA 150 not 300, the energy usage and the graphics wont play any decent high res video, which eliminates its use as a HTPC as they describe it in the advert.

I had a 3.4 Extreme Edition in mine..with a uprated PSU and a half decent graphics card, it did get a little warm in summer! In fact I think it's in the loft and this proves its not worth selling.

And you need to add a hard drive, keyboard, mouse and windows licence(or linux for free), might be cheaper to buy a full machine from SCHTRADE or ebay for £50-£60

Like this http://www.schtrade.co.uk/prod/dell-optiplex-745-core-2-duo-186ghz-1gb-80gb-grade-b-price-drop/

45 day warranty
Dell OptiPlex 745 - Core 2 Duo, 1.86GHz, 1GB, 80GB, DVD-ROM

For £53

Or for the same price - HP Compaq Business Desktop Dc7700 - Core 2 Duo, 1.86GHz, 3GB, 80GB

I gave away an old AMD one of these last month, had a barton 2500+ in it. Was a great machine in its day but I just couldn't find a use for it anymore.

i have a old agp card laying about half tempted to buy one for my nan whack in the geforce 5900 and see if it runs netflix lol

Great pieces of kit but as it's a P4 you may not be able to use Windows 8 on it.

I'm sure your nan would just love an old hot power-hungry P4 machine with an old hot power-hungry high end graphics card installed. The poor womans power bills would probably double. Machines like this and graphics cards like that just need to disappear, it's just no longer viable to run them.

On the plus side, it would keep her nice & warm during this extended nuclear winter . . .

I run a shuttle PC as a media PC connected to my TV, it must be 5 years old now but has been rock solid, nice small design - I'm a big fan of them.

What a bargain, even just for the case.

WOW! Pentium 4.
Perfect for cold winter as now.

This is cheap, you could probably mod the case to fit an ITX board without much trouble. First thing I would do with one is check the board and power supply for bad caps.

P4’s aren’t that useless, I was using an 775 P4 3.2Ghz with Win7 until recently and it was fine for net browsing and general use…….it did pump out the heat though lol.

Why on earth would you want to ?

I've a couple of shuttles still in working order including a cedar mill P4 version running @ 4.5Ghz - Now that gets hot
