More than meets the Eye - Barebone PC for Quad-Core and Crossfire

Large Cards Welcome

Shuttle XPC SX38P2Pro

The XPC SX38P2 Pro is large enough to house even large cards! It can handle either two CrossFire capable ATI cards or one single dual-slot graphics card, such as a GeForce 8800 GTX, for example.

    It's a great product in many ways I'd say comfining the potential of most decent gaming PCs to that size is an accomplishment.

    However I'm a strong proponent of quiet computing, and I normally believe tomshardware under estimates how loud some products they review are, if they say this is loud, then I'd probably want it set up in a different room to me while I'm using it. Personally if I was to get one, I'd try quietening it in any way possible, only use a dual core cpu, put a passively cooled 8800GT (if I could fit one). Or perhaps external watercooling would be ideal though it might contradict the point of space saving and would be inpractical for lan parties.
