I have another sn85g4 box. Works quite well, and hadn't experienced
any problem with the onboard ethernet port. Anyway, hd seems to get
quite hot (about 50 degrees). It is quite quiet (right now, with mi
window open(9th floor, just three or four cars on the street) i don't
hear the cooler).

I've also an ati 9600xt DON'T BUY ONE OF THESE! I would suggest not to
buy any ati as there's no support for amd64. Right now, my brother in
an old k7-500MHz has better 3D performance than me!! with an nvidia g

I would wait, i think a new shuttle barebone is on it's way, and it
will support the new unified amd socket for 64 bit processors.
