what distro are you using? ive used ubuntu and some based on it and theyre pretty nice, with a small footprint of course. love the 3d desktop thingie, if the gpu can do it of course.

also, why the heck dont you get a ps04b hell even a ps05 if you dont plan on using large gpus? under 50 bucks pmed, looks like a much more expensive case if you ask me :)

Heh I highly doubt my friend would appreciate an open sourced OS like ubuntu.

With regards to the case, it looks pretty beast and the price makes it even beastier. But my friend seems quite fixed on the case, and thinks its the nicest case in the world atm :P haha

If you are going to get the Blue UV ones, please do yourself a favour and buy some decent fan screws for them. The included ones suck a$$. They strip really easily.
