get aspire's 8800 GT for $175 in B/S/T unless you plan on using SLI in which case the 9600 GT is better

don't buy the shuttle crap, unless you plan on ditching the motherboard (for $400!?) you won't be able to overclock well with those generic brand motherboards...

is there any reason why your looking for SFF? HTPC?

also, Q6600 is $200 at microcenter if you have one near you

just pick up some crucial ballistix ram, however large a capacity you want, the PC2-6400 is a good price now ~30 after MIR's for 2 gigs

what do you mean new Q's? you mean new processors? unless your willing to pay 1k+ for a top of the line CPU, uhh... no?

I want Shuttle because they work good and I am tired of big tank. Want something small.

Many of my friends have shuttles and they work out pretty nice.

Abouts Q's
I mean Q9300 and Q9450

It would probably be a good idea to wait until july for the 9900 series. I'm sure there would be a price drop on the 8800gt and probably the 9600gt too. Though I would imagine you doesn't want to wait that long for what will probably be like $50 less.

Also you never mentioned if you had a monitor or not. Just wondering.

Nah.. Waiting till July is too long.
I already waited.

Then there will be something else coming out "really" soon.

Oh. No, I don't have.
But I plan to buy 24" maybe. I guess it will end up 300-400 for me.

If you really want 9600GT, then I recommend MSI 9600GT because it haswith higher clock speeds and a better fan

Newegg.com - MSI N9600GT 512M OC GeForce 9600GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Yes. It looks nice. But it taking two slots..
For small barebone like shuttle. I would want to save some space.
