Modder “Tech by Matt” had an old Nintendo GameCube laying around, so why not turn it into something useful? That’s exactly what he did, by adding in a AMD Ryzen APU and other hardware components to transform it into a functional gaming PC. It features an AMD Ryzen 3 3200G processor, 16GB of SODIMM DDR4 RAM, a 500GB NVMe SSD, an A320 mini-STX motherboard, M.2 Wi-Fi card, 150W power brick, and a 50mm fractal design fan.

The GameCube was purchased off eBay, along with a generic USB Gamecube controller adapter and a Gamebit screwdriver to remove the console’s proprietary screws. In all, it cost him $420 to build this gaming PC, but for those interested in making their own, the Ryzen 3 CPU can be upgraded to a Ryzen 5, while the motherboard is compatible with a second SSD for additional storage.
