Does anyone have any experiences with Shuttle XPC systems for gaming? Good, bad, indifferent? Any suggestions? I am looking at the Shuttle XPC G4500.

im SO glad you asked this...
i just bought a shuttle, and within 1 week it broke 5 times... card reader 3 times, audio ports once, and monitor port once...
when i sent it back for a FULL refund, i couldnt get it to see the monitor.
i just got my refund YESTERDAY... 5 weeks after they recieved my computer. yeah, 5 weeks.... after 10+ phone calls, being told i would be called back and never being called back. being lied to over and over and told my refund was being processed.
i finally called up and said 'money by monday or i dispute the charges'... low and behold there was my money.
learn from my mistake, build your own....

I have already gone down the road of building your own pc. I have had nothing but headaches for over a year and a half now. I am fed up with troubleshooting and fixing it. I have spent more time RMAing parts and troubleshooting than playing my games. I just want to get a good gaming machine. If not a shuttle, then what would you suggest?

I just built a shuttle SK43G (see pic in user gallery) and it's been running beautifully. No problems what so ever. Though it does run quite hot, it idles at 50C (CPU) and 45C (case). A bit warm for my taste. But very stable and no problems what-so-ever. I ran prim95 overnight and this thing is just incredably stable. I would recommend one.
ajna_star: Did you buy your shuttle prebuilt? I bought the barebones from newegg and added my other hardware to it. Everything is running great.

i woudl suggest checking out monarchcomputer.com , thats where iw as gonna go before i decided to build my own
they will build you a custom system, or you can buy pre-builts... their prices are the same as newegg and the build fee is only 50$
they also have a 9.8 rating on resellerratings.com

when i was buillding my first computer i chose a cube...... I ALMOST SHOT MYSELF
the thing is such an annoyance cause you dont have ram plus the mobo sucked. after i got everything it and it started up something wasnt working right it just always shut off after awhile then we fixed that forgot how, then out the of the dark blue yonder the moboshorts out. i would recommend a atx or just a freakin normal case. or a lanboy from antec those are small not a shuttle but still good for carrying around. oh and if your wondering i returned the stupid shuttle and bought the case im currently using.
