Honestly the pentium D's are crap. If you go to tomshardware and look at the CPU chart you'll see. Athlon X2's are much better. Don't get a 4200 though. Get a 3800 because they can easily be overclocked to the speed a 4200.

Neilnpatel.... View my Sig... I am running a Shuttle SN25P have have had NO TROUBLE AT ALL with mine... based upon the responses that I have seen to your question, you would be better off at a diferent forum with a SFF PC questions....
HERE is MY preferred SFF forum at Sudhain / SFF Tech. Good luck in your quest to build a SFF PC. I want to note that my SN25P is DEAD silent... I leave it on all the time, and the only indication that it is on is the blue LED ring around the power button...

EDIT: Likely the only issue you will have to deal with is making DEAD SURE that the video card will work in the SFF PC. I am not sure about the card you listed, but I know that there were some fitment issues with LONG PCI-e cards when I got mine last July~August... Just check measurements and ask at the Sudhain forums if anyone is running a similar setup.

Sweet, Just finished reading the thread actually... Good to see ANOTHER happy SFF user... Not to attack anyone's age here, but I see that a VAST MAJORITY of the users that have replied to this are still in High School. I would be interested to know where they get their info from, and how they can judge the users of SFF Tech to be newbies based upon a single thread there.... Did any of them see the threads about watercooling SFF cases?
