I got my inspiration from some guys at the forum here, i saw two NES-PC projects, one from Slugpuppy and one from Robertwhamm, and i immediately thought to myself ''I need to make one, because this is awesome!''
, and so I started this project, for me this is only for the fun and the experience I get from making this.
Because I do not have that much money this will be a project that slowly progresses. I'm sorry.
I want this to be an Steam box of some sort, a Steam box that I can bring with me to LAN parties to play high-end games on.My Requirements:
Sorted by importance
- Make the Gaming PC fit in a NES case
- Don't make visible holes (No cutting in the NES from the front, the sides or the top)
- Make the system as powerful as possible without melting it
- Only use fans for cooling, that will be challenging for me
- Asus Maximus VI Impact Mini-ITX motherboard
- If it comes to the GPU I have 3 choices,
The AMD Radeon R7 260X, The EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC, or the Asus GTX 760 DirectCU Mini
- Intel Core i5 3340 CPU
- Scythe Big Shuriken 2 low profile CPU cooler
- Vengeance Low Profile 2x4 GB ram
- Lots of fans, a lot of them!
- 120 GB laptop harddisk Check!
- Lots of cables too
- 2x2 female USB 2.0/3.0 to male Sata
I will give updates as time passes, but for now that's it.
we'll see how it really turns out, i've seen a number these they usually wind up hacked up BUT, if you succeed it will be ONE SWEET nes pc. you also have accomplished something i've been wanting to do for years.
i suggest dual 350 watt PICO power supplies. sure their external. you could rubber band the the bricks together and and use some kind "jack" if they don't come with one. 1for the mobo and 1 gfx card and your pick of the two for the hdd and or ssd as well as fans. you'll be using an i5 so i might suggest under volting and clocking for the cpu.
edit i see you have decided on a single external power brick, how many connection does it require? i think the picos work like a laptop adapter, you could also paint what power brick/supply you decide on to match the NES.Edited by cdoublejj - 11/9/13 at 6:01pm
