PostSubject: NES Case Mod   Mon Mar 07, 2011 11:34 pm

So relatively soon I plan to build a computer inside a Nintendo Entertainment System case. I have the broken NES here and this is what i plan to put in it. I have already done a shit ton of research and this will be capable of any hd video, even streaming, will run emulators with ease, and can even play CSS on high and get 95fps. All at an average output of only 38 watts. What think?

couldnt find right psu except on amazon:

will cost me roughly 250 and i got a hdd lying around to put in it.

I look forward to seeing the results. Just read a review on the mobo and it looked good.

Two points-

1-I would put 2x4GB of RAM in it.

2-You don't need that many fans.

Go to-

http://www.silentpcreview.com/

and check out the reviews on fans. Get the largest fan you can fit as an intake and have some exhaust holes and you are done. The money you will save on fans will almost cover the extra memory.

Good luck Smile

I don't think he needs 8GB of RAM, 4GB will be sufficient, and 2GB will be a bit laggy. I only have 4GB in my PC and it plays games flawlessly.

As for the fans, do you have reason to believe that this case will get VERY hot? The Atoms are cool anyhow compared to other chip.

Can't wait to see pictures of this Very Happy

Glad you caught that. I did mean 2X2GB not 2X4GB.

/g/ said for video playback 2 gb was sufficient, i might nix some fans tho. this isnt going to be for gaming foremost, just hd video playback and emulators. its benchmarks are good for a mobile platform nonetheless so i would take it to lan parties where all we play are css and battlefield and sins of a solar empire. one question here, is why would the thing support 8gb of ram if the zacate is an x86? is it show as dual cpu so 4 gigs per core or...?

Even if it was 32bit and dual core it doesn't mean it's 32 + 32 = 64 Very Happy You should know that!

2GB may not be enough for mutlitasking and if you plan to run Windows 7 or an emulator it might be a little less smooth. 4GB is the sweet spot.

yeah i know lol i just remember dual cpu computers(powermac comes to mind) had two 32 bit cpus with up to 4 gigs to use per cpu so 8 gb total, but yeah i might do 4 gigs of ram, depends on the cash flow, im selling one of my 360s and some music equipment for this, and maybe my beloved trs1000 tandy personal computer and its working dotmatrix printer.

if it works, since all of my research concludes my nes would be one of the better designs out there, i would like to locally offer it as a service i do in addition to my xbox, zune, ipod, and pc repair and building. might get more clients
