    Phil,

    For the sake of a few quid, I would avoid ebuyer and head over to www.kustompcs.co.uk

    Whilst they cannot offer you the kind of stack-it-high-sell-it-cheap prices that ebuyer do, Kustom do offer an excellent friendly service with customer support and service that is unsurpassed. They are frequently placed in the top three of online PC retailers which is pretty amazing considering they are relatively small but they do get a lot of support from their forums!!

    As for the Shuttle as your choice of HTPC, well you could do much worse but be aware that straight out of the box, the Shuttle is not the quietest of machines. Newer versions have a quieter (and more powerful) power supply so aim for this. Even so, you will still probably want to swap the stock 80mm cooling fan for a quieter version. Kustom stock lots of suitable candidates such as the Acoustifan or SilenX range. The swap is very easy as is building the PC itself.

    The main advantage of the Shuttle (in my opinion) is it’s ICE heatpipe cooling system which is unbelievably efficient and able to cooling high end CPUs with relatively low airflow.

    Kustom can sell you all the components you need and will probably offer you a good price on a complete system.

    Big A

    Kustom will also be able to advise on what components can be used with the Shuttle model you decide on. I've used them a couple of times and can confirm they are a good company to deal with.
