I needed to get rid of my SN85G shuttle box for one that has a 3.5" bay... now I can't decide between the new NF3 250gb Soltek or the Shuttle KM800 box. Any one convince me one way or the other? I think the Shuttle looks way better aeshetically but I don't know all the much about he VIA KM800 chipset. Damn I wish the other SFF makers would stop making such FUGLY boxes!!!

That Antec Aria looks nice but no extra bay on it :( I think I'll go ahead and grab the soltek box even though its pretty butt ugly. I heard that the 250gb is optimized for GFX cards and since I got that flashed 5900 I might as well. Plus this is all just temp till i build my next WC box...just gotta finish my remodelling my kitchen first otherwise my wife will flip lol.

I need the extra bay for a device I use to grab data of a turbidity meter and inclinometer. I have it plugged into the floppy connector on the motherboard but that means I gotta leave the cover off which looks pretty ghetto. Hehe I'm a network admin at a large civil engineering firm that specializes in geotech stuff so I have a large assortment of totally proprietary and bizzare computer perihpherals :)

Eh, I don't know jack about A64 chipsets in SFF boxes, but, have you seen the MSI SFF's? I'm not sure if they are the same as they were earlier, but I thought they looked pretty good. You could also cut a hole in the back of your current case large enough for the floppy cable to get out, and then put the cover back on.
