    ow i see, i just checked that site and tried to access that marketplace. Too bad the requirements are too strict to get instant access (need to do 50 posts at least and still have to wait 90 days).. Well, it does sound like a very good offer, still i think a GTX 1070 is a better Deal (i can get some for under 300) :D

    The price is good for a R9 Nano / Fury but you are right, a gtx 1070 is much more power for the value. ~300 is a really nice price.

    What operating system are you guys using for these? The Steam OS? Some other linux distro? Apparently if it's a 'Steam Machine', it's got Steam OS. I have some questions because I thought the best OS for gaming is Windows :\
    I'm also not sure what the benefit of having one of these over a desktop computer or gaming laptop is? Isn't a steam machine just a computer? (that is smaller with steam OS?)

    Most Guys would Chose Win 10 with Steam installed. Who wants to limit the Machine with Steam Exclusive Games? :p

    But originally yes, a Small Form factor Build able to compete with Xbox One, PS4 in price/performance/efficiency/flexibility

    Btw.. did you know why SteamOS was born and why it lost the players Interest? -> http://www.pcgamer.com/alienware-manager-on-steam-machines-lull-windows-10-changed-everything/

    Since the specification of the upcoming Scorpio ist released, anyone here has tried to reverse engineer a nearly identical System with PC components? This would bei exciting

    Should use this Console-like Case! It's awesome
