Introduction
Today we'll be taking a look at the SB95P V2 XPC or otherwise known as a Small Form Factor PC. Shuttle has become the mainstream provider for small form factor PC's. The small form factor audience mainly consists of; Gamers - who want a very lightweight and compact box to take to and from LAN party's, Home Theater Users - who are looking to setup a full multimedia center, and then we have the other users such as the ones who are seeking to regain their desktop space. Whatever your genre is, Shuttle's XPC line is bound to have a box for your needs. The XPC model that we are looking at today shows off new technologies such as DDR2 and PCI Express.

We will be thoroughly testing the SB95P V2 and taking this review at an upgrade or comparison approach. We'll determine what benefits, if any, PCI Express offers us by testing two cards identical cards side by side - one being PCI Express and the other AGP. We'll also do a memory comparison to find out if DDR2 is really worth the upgrade. Let's go ahead and dig in to the review!
