    Small Form Factor PCs. Anyone got one?

    Hey,

    Just wondering what the general concensus on these mini-pcs were? I'm looking at them as a possible replacement for my PC because they are practically as fast as some of the other tower pcs on the market with the exception of fewer PCI slots and ram slots (only 2 gig max).

    As well I was wondering if anyone knew if these computers accept regular sized video cards.

    Thanks.

    I'm thinking of getting one of these too. Heard that cooling and ventilation can be a problem if your climate is warm. Any thoughts on it by users will be much appreciated

    They're funny little things. Heating is a problem if you run a lot of crazy intensive programs, but just changing some heatsinks usually reduces that. I'm quite sure that they can't take extended AGP or PCI cards though, so that rules out the high end cards, but for a normal replacement PC it should be just fine.

    Don't forget less empty space for DVD ROM, burner, hd... Most has one 5 1/4 slot and one 3 1/2 for a hd... so check this out.
    Heat can be a problem with the box full and a hot HD/graphic card SCSI is hot too, and network one too.
