just a curious question, why not use the onboard NIC?

what OS are you running? looks like a nice budget rig as well, you could really pick some budget parts to make that a good all-around rig for the generic computer user while keeping up with speed.

makes me want an ITX rig >.<

It's only 10/100Mbps whereas my entire network is running on Gigabit.

That case is obscenely expensive. It's about 37000 Japanese Yen which translates into roughly $400. Take into account the fact that they're only available in Japan and you're gonna have to pay a couple hundred more on shipping if you want one... it's not an attractive proposition. Unfortunately.

Superb quality and craftsmanship, it's regrettable that Soldam chooses not to distribute their cases internationally. ;(

Absolutely nothing budget about that rig. :)

i meant to include aside from the case in there, guess i forgot.

that's the only thing i don't like about ITX...everything but the cases are becoming cheap.

Sweet case. If it were Micro-ATX or even ATX, I'd buy it instantly. $250 is a steal all things considered.
