I just bought a cube.

But, it's not the shuttles. Over at coolerguys they have a p4 cube w/ agp and usb 2.0 for 199.00.... figured at that price, the cost difference between xp and p4 would be neglible, and I can get a 2.2 p4 for about the same price as a 2200 XP, figured the p4 would be better for heat.

I'll let you all know how I like it when I get it ( and the proc ... hmmm ).

I actually saw one of these in a local shop, pretty sweet looking little box. Most importantly, though, it has a handle!

Handle= cool. :)

Now I need to find a good p4, hopefully one that will kick up to 133. :)

But, what's going to be the true advantage to a Nforce2 cube?

This is a price that is hard to beat.....

That price would tempt me too if I wasn't out of money and I had a legitimate use for it.

I had a legitimate use for it.


Since when does anyone need an excuse? :D

And I'm fickle.

I decided that if I was going to buy a cube, I might as well go with one that is more future proof than this one. The cost is quite a bit more, but I figure the added benefit of not having to upgrade for quite a while is worth it. So I decided to go with the SB51g.
