Hey all, I am currently typing on my very shitty Vectra VL400. I 'think' the motherboard I have is ATX, so my case should fit a ATX board. Considering that I will never have enough money to buy myself a Shuttle XPC SN41G2, I could get a ~$100 ECS K7S5A 1800+ Tbred B combo (If I had abit more, maybe a Epox 8RDA+). I am a avid gamering, yes I know this isnt the ideal gaming machine, I am on a 850Mhz Celly, 384MB PC133 (1x128MB 1x256). So bear with me! Would it be a worthwhile upgrade? I would use the powersupply, assuming its enough. I have some generic CD-ROM Drive and a 18Gig SeaGate, and a Radeon 8500 64MB. Could it be done? As a Shuttle XPC SN41G2 has a 200w powersupply also, however it may be a very special one. :(

ECSk7s5a is known to need a good high quality 300w minimum power supply.

Agreed, the K7S5A is known to be very finicky about the power supply you use with it.

Yeps lots of ppl think since its low end you can go out and get a low end psu or a low votage wrong. I thought that about my shuttle ak32l. Just wait till all the lock ups you get and random reboot no worth it so you will have to get a better psu. Better buy an case only thats cheap w/ a PSU you get a better case and psu heh ur decsion
buh bye
