Shuttle ships gamer-friendly SFF PC

A well-specced XPC P2 3700G doesn't come cheap, though

Shuttle today said it had managed to squeeze all the components necessary for a top-of-the-line gaming machine into one of its XPC small form-factor PC cases, claiming the result to be the "performance winner". It should be, for the price...

The XPC P2 3700G is based on Shuttle's XPC Barebone SD37P2 chassis. It comes pre-installed with an Intel 975X-based motherboard, Core 2 Extreme X6800 CPU, 4GB of 667MHz DDR 2 SDRAM in dual-channel configuration, a 400GB Samsung SATA hard drive and a 14x DVD write with dual-layer media support.

Graphics come courtesy of an Nvidia GeForce 7950 GX2 dual-GPU board. Other refinements include a 22-in-one memory card reader and Gigabit Ethernet.

The whole lot costs a whopping €3,044 ($3,856/£2,043) - and that's before you've added local sales tax - so it's good to know you get a two-year collect-and-return warranty in the box.

Fortunately for folks on a budget, Shuttle is also offering the P2 3700G with a choice of lesser CPUs, GPUs, less capacious hard drives and smaller amounts of memory, pushing the price down to a baseline €1,163 ($1,473/£781). ®
