Nintendo GameCube Turned Gaming PC
Gamer Preston Roberts, better known as ETA Prime online, transformed an old Nintendo GameCube console into a functional gaming PC. This game console, originally released in September 14, 2001 in Japan, may not have been a roaring success, or at least when compared to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, but it definitely held its own. For those who happen to come across a broken unit or even just a shell, here’s what you can do with it. Read more for the build video and to see it in-action.

It’s powered by by an 11th-generation Intel Core i5 Tiger Lake 1135G7 processor with built-in Iris Xe graphics, 16GB of 3200MHz DDR4 RAM, an 80mm low profile fan, and the option to add an external graphics card “eGPU” because it does have a Thunderbolt port. The finished product can basically be thought of as a sleeper GameCube that does so much more than just play games. As for retro gaming, it can handle just about any SEGA Dreamcast, GameCube, and Wii title at 4K resolution using the Dolphin emulator.
