    I've got an idea what I want for my new machine. BUT, now I've come across Shuttle SN25P (barebone system) which has caught my attention.
    I'm not familiar with barebone systems so could someone tell me what I need to purchase in addition to this system to get it fully up and running?

    Thanx in advance.

    Also a modem if you are on dial up and a floppy drive.
    These are fiddly to build but come with a brilliant set of instructions and if you follow these and take your time you get a very quiet and powerful computer.

    So barebone is basically the case+mobo+psu... costing upto £300?
    Kinda sux if you ask me... kinda tight on budget as it is... I don't really want to break the £600 budget I've set for my upgrade. :p

    All shuttles come with the PSU allready installed, they are generally 200 or 250watt.

    Just checking the specifications it has a 350 watt power supply.
