[SLUG] Multimedia machine (Shuttle)

Title: Multimedia machine (Shuttle)

About to embark on purchasing a little and quiet box for running my movies/music from I have come across the shuttle bar bones system and wondering what peoples experiences are with this.

My needs I think a fairly minimum

Good graphics card for displaying DVDs

Cpu power to handle the above

Room for 2 hard drives prefer sata but ide will do

10/100 on board

Small form factor and quiet power supply

Spif audio out ( and supported by alsa)

Need to be able to run linux.

I have also started to look at the mac mini, not bad on first look
