Bespoke build - mini ITX build inside an old NES shell, perfect for some retro gaming (we've done this before with a USB hub and PS4 controllers using the included SNES, GBA, Mega Drive and more ROMs and emulators, see screenshots. retroarch installed to play the ROMs)

Original NES shell hollowed out to allow for a mini ITX board.

Motherboard: ASUS P8H61 revision 2.0
CPU: Intel core i3-3220 (stock cooler)
RAM: 8GB - 2x Corsair XMS3 4GB (1600mhz).
XMP enabled in BIOS
SSD: SanDisk 128GB
Graphics: Intel HD iGPU (on the i3-3220)
Some pictures show a Radeon HD5450 which I briefly used (not part of ad, for sale separately)
PSU: PicoPSU-150-XT (laptop style brick and cable) . Max 150W.
Windows 10 (fresh install)
Arctic F8 case fan (not essential for overall cooling).

Pictures taken show with and without the Radeon GPU. Performance screenshots shown.

Note: any monitor or TV in pictures are not included in sale.

Quirks of the build:
The Dremel work on the back and bottom of case isn't great and there's a small chip off the plastic in the front left corner (see pics). But it's structure is sound, especially if it's going to sit under a TV.

The extra (unnecessary) case fan isn't screwed into the case (it's just resting on the edge of other wires) so can be easily removed.

SSD isn't in a bracket.

Power on LED in place of original NES power on light.

Unfortunately the power button isn't wired up to the original NES power button (it's possible to do but you'll need a soldering iron).

Extra cables (SATA and molex) for up to 2 additional SSDs (if you don't use the GPU there's space for two more drives).

Netgear A6100 Wi-Fi USB adapter (5ghz/2.4Ghz)

I've long since misplaced the screws holding the two halves of the NES shell together. It hasn't bothered me as the halves slot together.

Making space as I'm building a new machine.

Logitech K400r included (the all white one in the pictures). This is a keyboard/track pad combo.

It probably can't play Crisis.

Any questions please ask. If you need me to run something to check just ask.

Collection or delivery on Bray. I don't think posting it is a good idea.
