Custom Built Nintendo NES PC

A long time ago, around 2007 I built an NES PC. This was when mini ITX form factor boards were a new thing and I instantly had the idea to put it into an NES and wire up all the connectors, reset button, power LED etc.

Sadly the work log is long gone but I do have a small number of remaining pictures of this machine.

It's spec was:

VIA CPU at 733Mhz
256MB DDR RAM
40GB 2.5 inch IDE drive
IDE CD rom from a laptop
PICO 90w PSU with external transformer

Playing NES emulators on this machine was fun! It was sold about a year later for a ton on eBay.
