This is my first post to the SPCR forums, I guess the promo was enough of an incentive for me to register. Anyway, here's some pics of a little project of mine:
it's a VIA mini-itx epia 800, a generic (lite-on i think?) laptop DVD-rom drive, fujitsu mhr2030at 30gb laptop hard drive, fanless internal/external power supply from a morex cubid case, and a bunch of extension adapters to route the cables to the outside of the NES case. The DVD drive sticks out the cartridge slot, video (composite connector) and audio (1/8" headphone jack) out the side, ethernet, power, and ps/2 keyboard out the back, and USB out the sides (I use USB mice). There are also working LED and power/reset buttons. I also hooked up the left NES port on the case up to the parallel port, so that I could use a working NES controller, a SNES or PSX controller with the help of some dongles, and 4 SNES controllers with the help of a dongle and multitap. I was going to add VGA or S-Video extension to the right controller port (via dongle), or I was thinking about putting the VGA through the recession out the back of the NES case, but i ended up taking the entire thing apart and my brother started using the epia for music stuff so he stuck it in an amp case. I've since purchased an epia-m, but the power connector is on a different side of the motherboard and i haven't yet spent the time to figure out how to fit everything properly in the case with the new positioning.
I have some more pictures around somewhere if anyone else is interested. I can also take some pictures of the amp case, or the quick and dirty poor man's EPIA-M case that I put together that I made out of the retail epia-m box itself because I had about 20 minutes to put the computer in something to bring to a friend's house and show a divx video. Only problem was that in such a tight case without any extra fans, I think the northbridge chip got too hot and was crashing the computer about a minute into entering windows xp, so I had to play the movie with the box opened on the top anyway for it to work properly.
