[Novalug] Question about a Shuttle barebone system

I came across a Shuttle bare bones system on TigerDirect
(http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3247598&body=MAIN#detailspecs) It's the Shuttle SG33G5 Socket 775 Barebone - Intel G3#, Socket 775, SFF, Audio, Video, HDMI, PCI Express, Gigabit LAN, S/PDIF, USB 2.0, Firewire, eSATA & 250 Watt Power Supply. For $250, I could come up with a system but this is a Shuttle which I'd expect to be small & quiet yet functional.
My intent is to use this with Second Life under Linux. Has anyone used
this for 3D graphics? Is 384MB of shared memory sufficient for
performance?? I can get an SL recommended video card (8400GTS) at
Microcenter for $70. Would there be an issue with the power supply not
being sufficient? I chatted with Microcenter Tech Support & he pointed
out that each "rail" for power needs to be adequate. I am rather
limited in what I can find out on this - hence my question to the

Remember, all Windows machines are, by definition, fault tolerant.
They run Windows don't they!!
