The Tech Report was lucky enough to get SilverStone's newest Shuttle, the SN21G5.  While just as small as you would expect a Shuttle case to be, the amount of hardware they have managed to fit in is almost unbelievable.  This little barebones system could be a fairly powerful gaming machine, not just a SFF or HTPC with middle of the road performance.

"Fortunately, Shuttle hasn't completely forgotten about do-it-yourself PC builders. In fact, the company has just launched a new addition to its small form factor barebones lineup. The XPC SN21G5 packs NVIDIA's GeForce 6100 integrated graphics chipset, a carefully massaged ICE cooler, and room for a GeForce 7800 GTX into Shuttle's proven G5 chassis.

Can the diminutive SN21G5 keep up with the latest full-sized ATX motherboards? Perhaps more importantly, how does it compare with Shuttle's last cube with integrated graphics for the Athlon 64? Keep reading to find out. "
