Sweet SFF case

Does this look like a nice case or what? Hey Damage with your positive review of the Sonata think Antec can send you a review unit if this case? :D

Nice looking case, but it looks like cabling it is a nightmare. Plus the inside is not as nice as the other SFF systems out there, as they put more thought into ergonomics.

Hey Howard,

Yeah, I actually considered picking this up since it will accomidate a mini ATX motherboard. I could pick up the Gigabyte GAVT800M Athlon 64 motherboard and still have all the functionallity of an SFF plus the ability to have 3 hard disks in this sucker. Oh, and the fact that it would have three pci slots isn't too shabby either. :) Between the cost of the motherboard and this SFF case, it would still be cheaper (About $100) than buying Shuttles NF150 chipset based unit. Also, a 300watt power supply would be nice...

BTW, just order the SilentX 250 Watt power supply for the SN45G. Will let you know how it goes once it's installed.

Slick case. I probably won't see it in Canada for a while.

That's the suck part - having to wait a few months for the products to reach Canada. Hopefully Tigerdirect will carry more SFF's since they have a good selection right now.

Ususally the good parts cost an arm, a leg, and a few more parts. I want to upgrade my RAM but all you see is OCZ and the good stuff is a small fortune. I need to talk to my vendor and see what they can get thier hands on.

The computer store I goto in Manitoba sold A64 chips for the longest time and they finally got the Asus K8T a few weeks ago. :roll:

Have you ever condiderd ordering online from somewhere else like from http://www.ncix.com or checking http://www.pricenetwork.ca. EVenthough you probably do get it cheaper from where you go now. I just started really checking pricenetwork and see alot of places with lower prices than my usual joints but have never ordered something online.

Yeah but I don't have a credit card and going to a store gives me an excuse to leave the house. I have priced out systems of the internet and priced out systems from stores and the difference is very small ($100?).
