I hooked up my Dell to my plasma this weekend after adding ATI AIW and Revolution cards and I must say I'm hooked. Has anyone found a good small form factor PC to use? Has anyone tried the Dell Optiplex (Small Form Factor or Small Desktop)? I'm having trouble finding something small that will allow a normal AGP card and at least a half length PCI audio card.

Shuttle makes the XPC line of systems that are great I think for this kind of use. Their newer systems can take up to the large Geforce cards and the Radeon 9700 and have a pretty accomidating space for long PCI cards too.


My only beef? The power supply fan can be a bit noisy at times depending on your tolerance for it. It was great in my office but it might be a bit high pitched for some in a HTPC environment. All a matter of taste though. If I had the cash I'd be getting another XPC for my HTPC set up.
