Since some of you are at least a bit more experienced at custom computers than I am, could I get maybe a few suggestions or constructive criticisms?

At risk of seeming retarded I am looking at building this:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Buil...ntendo-NES-PC/
Sold a few revamped NES units last year but have some carcasses left over. Figured "Why not?".

Do any of you have experience with a Mini ITX motherboard?
Here: http://www.mini-itx.com/ I see someone in the comments suggested "Zotac IONITX-A-U motherboard" which they have.

I see the overall design and I like it but my only gripes are
1) Inadequate ventilation and cooling. I could fix the ventilation problem, but I don't know about that teeny tiny fan. Checking into options.

2) they put portable hard drive inside the darn thing which will already be hot and probably claustrophobic cuz it's so tight in there. I understand for portability sake and less hassle. Still kind of want to do that.

Guess I have tech pointers from instructables, but I'm wanting to know from more familiar crowds how picky a mini motherboard system can be, if there are any quirks to look out for. Stuff like that. And I guess your thoughts or suggestions on the NES PC in general.

looks awesome, but i've no experience with ITX mobos, so I have nothing useful to add, except to request pix when you finish your mod

Awesome plan, GTA! I have some tips on this if you don't mind hearing me ramble.

I was quite soured on mini mobos thanks to a project last year but most all of them should run any of the older emulators just fine. I was trying to push 1080p video with flash overlay out of them and most of them **** their pants on me. Aside from that some of them had weird boot glitches.

If I was doing this I would find a New/Used Acer REVO 1600 on ebay or similar model, rip the case off, mount in into the Nintendo housing, and run panel mount cable extensions to the sockets you'll cut into the case. This will be cheaper than the mini mobos, comes with the hard drive, has multiple fans, HDMI/VGA Output, and is fully capable of also functioning as a Hi Definition Media Box.

Bonus Tip: Using the money you saved, add in wireless dongles for the keyboard, mouse, and internet so you have to cut fewer holes in the case.

Hit me up on Skype sometime and we can mull things over.

Cool. Thanks.

Wow, looks like it isn't going to hurt nearly as bad as I thought it would.

Can it IEEE1394/firewire as well for a digital camcorder?

I like NFS: Shift... But that was a bit more of an attempt at a legitimate racing game than the traditional NFS "dash and bash" recipe.

Good to see you get into GTA IV, I loved the hell out of it. It's still to date the only GTA I've ever completed. Twice for that matter. As for the DLC, The Lost and the Damned is alright, but The Ballad of Gay Tony is fantastic. TLatD has some really unlikable main characters, and the story is told kind of lame at points, however TBoGT has extremely likable main characters, and the dynamic between your character, Luis, and Gay Tony is fantastic. I played through the whole DLC twice basically because of the challenge system it introduced, trying to 100% each level.

Makes me want to get a Blu-ray drive for my PC, now. I'll probably get one this week or next.

Acer AL2216W monitor. A simple but solid LCD monitor. (16:10, 1680x1050)

They're not being made anymore, but I got a used one for $102.50 on eBay. I got it because it's the monitor I'm using right now. Early next week I expect to be rocking a sweet dual-monitor set-up. I can't wait. :V

*5 seconds in Photoshop*
Show spoiler


Funny thing is, though. That a 30" $1200 behemoth monitor is 2560x1600, which is 4,096,000 pixels. 1680x1050 is 1,764,000 pixels. So even with two of them, it's still less pixel space at 3,528,000 pixels. D:

[Shameless plug] Yeah, so GameStop has a spiffy promotion where they give you an extra 50% on your trade ins. This ends on 3/6/11. That means even your old PS2 crap is worth something! [/shameless plug]

So that being said, this promotion came as a blessing in disguise as I was dumb enough to order Killzone 3, The Helghast Edition I am a HUGE fan of this series, so it was necessary.



I also got this:



And with the money I had left over...yes I had money left over! So I also got this!



Good times, good times!

I got this in the mail yesterday. I forgot it was coming out this month.



It's about 1,000 pages and like 2 inches thick.

If you haven't read The Name of the Wind, you should. And then read The Wise Man's Fear. They're both damn good books.

So I realize I am the last one to get on the boat with this damn system upgrade.

Two things holding me back. 1. Other than the noisy fan, my whitebox was working fine. 2. Could not get **** for credit if I traded my whitebox in.

My buddy who runs the store down the street from me, won a contest and all the employees in the store won 4GB Kinect Bundles. However, since they all already had systems, they traded them in for store credit. My store used the opportunity to upgrade our systems...

GameStop was finally offering $100 credit on a wireless 360 system as long as you were a power up platinum member. Traded in LBP2, Halo Reach, Bulletstorm, and of course all my accessories for my old whitebox. After all was said and done I paid $34.43 out of my pocket for a 250GB hard drive.

I been trying to keep my upgrade down below $100. I figured this was my last chance. So basically I bought a never been used system, at a used price. I like the way it looks at sounds, but transferring the junk off my old hard drive, to the new hard drive, was a bigger pain in the ass than I bargained for.

Yeah, I got the new 360 250GB and Kinect when it came out as a bundle deal for the kids from Christmas, and transferring over all the stuff from the old harddrive via a flash drive was a pita, it took ages, and then you have to go on xbox.com and transfer over all the licences which takes ages too. It was worth is though, I do like the new xbox, looks good and it is quiet as hell, and now I don't have to worry about running out of space anymore.

Catching up with Legacy...

Are the whiteboxes worth getting? I really want a 360, but is it worth waiting to save up enough for the newer models? I also don't know if its worth getting one now or if I should just wait until these are more obsolete in a few years.

They all play the exact same library (sans Kinect) of games. I have an original PS3 and Xbox 360. I've never felt the need to get a slim (ie nerfed) PS3 or upgrade to a 360 with a bigger hard drive and built-in wireless n adapter.

Have not seen the kinects in action long enough to say anything--though my pal's dad got one and seems to be doing well enough for a guy in his 50's reliving his military days after work. The newer generations of white 360s and the elites seem less prone to the RROD problem.

If you should happen to get an older white one for super cheap or free as gift you may want to know:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Fix-...ithout-towels/
Also If the fans inside it are dying, replace only with exact ones. Otherwise the bios will pick up different fans consuming different power levels than set in bios and the console will be banned from XBL.

PS3...was awesome. Even slim. At least what little I played of it while my pal still had it before his now ex decided to steal it from him.
If this says anything about how good a PS3 is: She took the kids, the jewelry, and the PS3 little else. Left behind the kids' toys and care items and pretty much all the stuff she bought over their 7 year relationship. She owned 80% of what was in the house and a car.

There is a false premise that everyone keeps falling for. Let me clarify.

1. The white box WILL play kinect games. You simply have to buy the kinect that comes with a power adapter. If you buy the stand alone Kinect bundle: , you will have everything you need.

2. The new "slim" 360's have a dedicated port in the back which will power the kinect without a separate power adapter. After the upgrade, all this meant for me, was chucking the power adapter into the closet.

Also want to throw this out there. Kinect is a great time at parties, but on the downside, unless you want to spend your days and nights dancing and exercising until you drop... there is a rather poor selection of software for this thing. Right now I only found two games out of the dozen that launched that I like. The one it comes with Kinect Adventures, and Kinect Sports, which is basically Microsoft's version of Wii Sports. (but the bowling game is better...trust me!)

I would probably not purchase a Kinect right now. The only reason I have one, is because Microsoft gave GameStop managers one as a holiday gift this past Christmas. I am hanging on to it, and hoping they come up with something that isn't another spin off of Dance Freaking Central, or another gimmicky exercise game.

Rented this one from work:



Not bad for a system devoid of new ideas. However, I have to say that the ability to post videos to your FaceBook is more trouble than it is worth.

The plus side, is you really get to pick the scenes, and just freestyle with them as I had hoped.

The scoring is based on timing of delivery of the lines, which is a bit punishable even for scenes depicting Arnold in a police station.

I would still recommend this joint as a good party game. Of course the Kinect Menu is still kinda bothersome here, but the selection is good, and the game is not terrible.



I know I have been ranting about this movie for many years on LF now, and I doubt any of you even give a crap.

Forbidden Planet is a sci-fi flick ahead of it's time in many, many ways.

In the case of the this Blu-Ray edition, it features a quite nifty documentary that includes: Stephen Speilberg, George Lucas, James Cameron, and Ridley Scott all talking about they're favorite sci-fi films as kids growing up. You should buy this movie for this reason alone. At $14.99 you get an amazing print of the movie, you get all the extra content, you even get an extra movie inside that includes Robbie The Robot who was the start of Forbidden Planet.

This movie inspired Star Trek, which Gene Roddenberry admitted. Just watch the film once, and judge later if you will.
