It's also a bit smaller and you get GF4MX instead of GF2 and dual head for programming bliss. Just my thoughts. NF2 vs. NF1 is a good thing I think.
HowardDrake wrote:The Soltek cube that you listed initially has a nForce chipset, not nForce2. So you don't get the same onboard graphics capacities. Now I know that it's not an enormous difference but there is some. That combined with the better audio of NF2 and dual-head would sway the decision for me.
EDIT: I looked at Soltek's manufacturer page and it is NF2, same core. My bad But I still like the Shuttles cooling system and dual monitor output
