Epic! Ive been wanting to do this. Nice
It's definitely one of those builds that you should try. The NES is quite spacious compared to other consoles such as the PS2 or Xbox/360 which would allow the installation of low profile graphics cards if you can settle the motherboard in deeply enough into the bottom of the case. At the moment I haven't managed that and the graphics card is pushing the top half of the case up so that it won't close all the way.
I agree with Captain, have three NES's at my house, though it would be cool to do it with my SEGA gensis as well, and have been wanting to give it a try. You should consider doing a guide if you haven't already it would help me and probably quite a few other people, if you had the time.
Im jealous of the case
