Hardware Talk :: SFF Via & Intel Mobile boxes - cheap



Interesting discussion at Silent PC Review  Hard to beat the Via box for a small, budget HD/ODD DSL box.  (Sorry John & Robert  ;-)

Via 1GHz C7 processor, CN700 and VT8237R+ chipset barebones  -- USD$ 179.99 + S/H.  (Barebone = mobo, cpu, ps, case, no memory or disks.)  Case has 1 x 5.25 drive bay and 2 x 3.5 drive bays.  Accommodates 1 DIMM (240 pins/1.8V) for DDRII 533/400 MHz, up to 2GB.
