As I was doing all of that research on FreeNas yesterday I came across a very cool DIY build project. Basically the build guide shows you how to turn an old NES case into a very cool little HTPC. You can also run an emulator on this little guy and play almost any old console game you like.

If you like the idea but don’t want to spend the time an effort on the build, you can find them depending on the specs. That’s a about $200 more then the price of the hardware, but it would save you from putting your old NES box under the knife.
