$100.00 Released January, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Comes with a good sound system built in, renders audio in high quality and surround sound. Works out of the box without any special configuration required. Easy to overclock, generally runs stable even when turned up.

The Cons:Lacks any RAID support, which is generally supported in several configurations in this range. Need to purchase an additional port to actually use the Firewire capability. Side facing SATA connectors make setup a little tricky.
