Shuttle's latest Small Formfactor PC is its XPC SN27P2
which is based around nVIDIA's
nForce 570 Ultra chipset and supports 940-pin socket AM2 Athlon64 X2/FX and Sempron processors. There are
a whopping four 240 pin DDR-2 DIMM slots, making this toaster capable
of supporting up to 8GB of memory (up to DDR2-800 RAM like this Twin2X-PC26400 modules from Corsair).
If that wasn't
enough already, the BTX-style motherboard layout means you can install a PCI
Express x16 videocard with a dual-slot heatsink! It's unheard of! If you
choose to do load up this socket AM2 powerhouse with an nVidia Geforce 7900GTX, the
dual-slot thermal package will block off the lone 32-PCI slot which is the computers only other expansion
possibility. Overall the Shuttle XPC SN27P2 Small Formfactor barebones PC is a nice package - it looks great and is built with reducing an impact both in the space it occupies, and in the amount of noise it generates.
