In the next 6 months or so I'm going to build myself a new rig...I really want one of the shuttle small form factors but if you use a standard ATX board and a normal sized case and you have enough components you need a really powerful PSU. How come with the small form factor you can get away with such a small PSU in these things...Just wondering if anyone knows

maybe cause they dont have all those extra slots for adding more hard drives, cd-roms, etc. so you wont need that many watts, just a guess.

the lack of many drives, pci cards, and also fans helps reduce power consumption. besides, you'd be surprised what a 250watt power supply can run.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
