Default SFF Build Advice

I'm interested in trying something out for SFF that is portable to me, Not for anything intense gaming wise but I will be doing a lot of travelling come the Spring/Summertime so I'd like to have something to Lug around, and I've never been a Laptop Fan.

So, here is what I was thinking, feel free to critique.

NCIX.com - Buy Shuttle SA76G2 Black Barebones Mini PC AM2+/AM3 760G DDR2 PCI-E16 1PCI SATA DVI Sound GBLAN - SA76G2 In Canada.

Looks decent, not 100% whats included in it so feel free to correct me if I add something in my List that is.

NCIX.com - Buy AMD Phenom II X4 905E Energy Efficient Quad Core Processor Socket AM3 2.5GHZ 65W Retail Box - HD905EOCGIBOX In Canada.

Low Power Consumption Quad from AMD. Should do the trick really.

NCIX.com - Buy Western Digital WD5000AADS Caviar Green 500GB SATA 32MB 3.5IN Hard Drive OEM - WD5000AADS In Canada.

I don't need the speed of a black, nor anything past 500GB for my uses. Good price, again low power.

NCIX.com - Buy ASUS DVD-E818A6T 16X DVD-ROM Drive Black Internal SATA OEM - DVD-E818A6T In Canada.

CD's go in. Thats all it needs to do.

NCIX.com - Buy Corsair VS2GB800D2 PC2-6400 2GB 1X2GB DDR2-800 CL5 240PIN DIMM Memory - VS2GB800D2 In Canada.

MMMM nakkid Value Ram!

NCIX.com - Buy EVGA GeForce GT 240 Superclocked 550MHZ 512MB 3.588GHZ DDR5 PCI-E HDMI DVI-I VGA Video Card - 512-P3-1242-LR In Canada.

Should be able to play a few decent Games (No Crisis or anything that intense).
Low Power Requirement..


So , how does this look? Am I missing anything (Besides an OS, which I have plenty, and tonnes of Mice/Keyboards and my trust LG 15" Screen).

Cheaper is better , but I've got it at around $700 or so give or take a little.

Not quite sure as Tax Time decides everything for me.

How about a 5670, it cost less and it offer better performance.

NCIX.com - Buy Powercolor Radeon HD 5670 775MHZ 512MB GDDR5 4.0GHZ HDMI DVI VGA DIRECTX11 PCI-E Video Card - AX5670 512MD5-H In Canada.

If you don't need the mini-ITX FF, that looks like a winning combo...though I agree, a 5670 would be better.

I'm guessing ST will probably fold a tad so forget 5670.
