    From what I can tell, a "barebones" system typically would include the SFF case/mobo, a (tiny) PSU, and (usually) the special HSF required to fit the case.

    You supply the RAM, CPU, optical drive ( only one&#33 and the HDD.

    They seem increasingly popular in the modding community.
    Mostly, I think, because they require so much work to make them run cool if you buy hot rod components.

    Have fun.

    You got me.

    I guess they are not, but I see more SFF versions since the required parts are so specific to that application.

    My bad.
