NES turned into a full fledged PC

The NES is a rather hefty console by today’s standards, but an avid DIY-er has taken it apart and thrown in a full-fledged Windows-powered PC inside. Although the specifications aren’t on the high-end side of things (a 1GHz processor, 256MB RAM and a 40GB hard drive), it is good enough to run most game emulation software out there. This 625 Euro purchase will come with NES, SNES, N64 and PS2 controllers since it can handle games from all those consoles. The inclusion of a DVD drive also turns this into a living room movie player. This labor of love cost over $800 in parts and 50 hours to build – so head on to the auction page if you want this classic console that has been modified to play games up to the last generation.
