never been near a SFF pc, but am very interested. My brother is turning 30 in August and I thought I'd like to buy/build him a SFF to replace his prehistoric stereo. it'd be an amazing surprise, and he'd be over the moon and it'd be a fun project.
Basically I need it to run iTunes, wireless g, with, say, a 120gb drive or so.
I've looked at the Shuttle wsite, and they are a little too expensive. I've been scoring newegg and I think I can come up with quite a reasonable machine for c. $500 (with 14"/15" LCD included). I'm sure I'd get away with integrated graphics and maybe 256 memory - he's not going to be playing games on it or anything...
Is it a good idea to build my own SFF from parts off newegg? (I've built regular PC's before). Could anyone suggest a good shopping list for the machine I've outlined? Bearing in mind I'm trying to hit a $500-$600 ceiling.
Any help would be mucho appreciated!!
Yes but wait until you see the full effect with the heump
