Or buy a not much larger HP Microserver £121 after HP cashback
Not quite the same processor options but atleast it comes as a fully running PC/server

Good spec mobo and 80PLUS PSU with this!
Note that this doesn't have a dual gigabit NIC as stated, nor does it have an external sata power supply.

Part of the specification says:
Color slots/connectors design (Power switch, USB, PCIe, DDR3)
Supports 800, 1066, 1333 or 1600MHz front side bus (FSB) [Which would insinuate DDR3]

But another part said:

4 memory slots à 240 pins
Supports DDR2

Do you know which it is? DDR3 is much cheaper!

I like the HP server but they really are 2 different things. You could build a pretty powerful gaming rig with the Shuttle or an all round Home entertainment machine.

Yep, I agree.
While the micro-server could take a graphics card, that processor really isnt up-to much.

With this you could pop in even the quad extremes and have awesome gaming and overclocking potential.

jacksonliam - Specs below, looks like DDR2.

Am sorely tempted by this. Was going to build a Z68-based ITX Sandybridge box but I'd have to replace everything except the HDDs I have now. At least with this I can keep my CPU, RAM, GPU and downscale at the same time and finally sell my P182 :)

The build quality of Shuttles is great. A buddy of mine has one setup as a portable gaming rig, but I'd rather use one as a home theater PC.

@skyboat.

Agreed, also sorely tempted.

Although the i7 trounces LGA 775 core 2 in raw power in multimedia editing applications, there seems to be little other real world difference between an i7 and a Q9650 for other applications (because most software now is very poor at working with 8 threads, let alone 4). Maybe in two years time the differences will be apparent, but by then i7 will be as old hat as Core 2!


Updating myself, but thinking about getting one of these instead, or just transfering my q6600, old IDEs/DDR2 and old gfx into one of these, that way they dont sit on the top of the wardrobe gathering dust or go on ebay for pennies when it is all still very capable.

if looking at barebones:

Aria do this for £71.99 :
XPS 430 - Socket 775, 375W PSU

In all honesty there is a significant difference in size. A Shuttle PC is aimed at people that like a nice compact unit that is hardly noticeable. It has a different target audience to the product you are suggesting. I would choose Shuttle over Dell any day of the week. Also the power supplies in Shuttles are very well rated and far more capable than your average PSU.

Are these still noisey.Had one a few years ago and as they are so compact remember cooling was an issue?

For the size of that case I'd be no better off than sticking with my current Antec P182.

I wonder why SH55J2 might be less attractive? It's cheaper, supports DDR3 and 1156 processors (i3, i5, i7) and (presuming you get the right processor) the graphics ought to be OK. It has space for two drives (rather than 3), but otherwise looks OK. Obviously if you have a Core 2 and/or DDR2 memory then that changes the equation, but if you want to put together a new system I'm not sure what makes this one superior?
#14
The Shuttle SX48P2E has a 450 watt PSU for supporting meatier graphics cards, also has more space inside. Build quality is better too. The SH55J2 is a capable machine but feel it is aimed at the casual gamer or someone looking for a HTPC.
