I have done this before. It takes alot of cuting, drilling, and about any thing els you can think of. But i will tell you this it is worth it in the end.

Yoshi's Box "G4 TV" is what made me do it.

 

This is somthing that may help you out it is pics and some info on yoshi's Boxx

I did not have any cooling probs when i done it. I used 2 80mm fans. I did add heat sinks to the cpus. But they come off of a Mac. I used them because they was the only heatsinks i had laying around that i could put an 80mm fan on.

I did not have my comp in the case. but i got a gameBox switch off of ebay that i mounted in the back of the case. I will try to find out the bran and let you know.

I have seen them at wall mart for like $30 bucks.

i cant help you when it comes to the nes, cause i never hade them apart. but that ribon cabel is no prob it will come off from the mobo, well mine did. go to a tech store or look around on line for the cabel that matches it. i dont remember how many pins it was, but you can count them. I got mine at best buy. good luck. i will keep looking at this thred so keep it updated.

 

How it is made will depend on when it was made. see sony changed the design about 1 year after the ps2 come out because they found a cheaper way to make the system.

let see your XBOX is between version 1.2-1.5, not liekly 1.6a/b bc if it was that new you prob wouldn't be ripping it apart :D

 

I would tell you the exact version but i cant tell what chips are on the bord from the picture.

 

Mine's the good old version 1.0, but i suppose with my screen name you would have guessed that...

 

Oh and why put a PC in an XBOX when you already have one inside...toss in an unlocked HDD and install Linux, works great or so i hear, the controller ports are USB, so no problems there.
