Shuttle’s new Core 2 Duo SFF computer – P2 3700

Sleek, sexy, and powerful is what I would describe Shuttle’s new P2 3700 SFF. The P2 3700 uses Intel’s 975X chipset that support Core 2 Duo processors. Many gamers will be happy to know that the P2 3700 have two x16 PCI express slot to support Crossfire technology. The new SSF support up to 8GB RAM and four hard drives. One thing concern me about the P2 3700 is the power supply, it only comes with 400W PSU which I don’t think it will be enough to power everything if you loaded it up with dual high end video cards and four hard drives. The Shuttle P2 3700 system starts from $1450. Hope to see it as a barebone system soon!
