    I think you're referring to someone mounting a micro ITX with the VIA/Cyrix CPU's in an NES? Sure, you could mount one in anything if you can make it fit and fasten it to the chassis without any grounding issues.

    I kind of want to mount one in a toaster, I never got to own an Amiga :P

    Dude500, from the link you gave I'd follow what Ethyriel said. It should be possible to build a computer within a SNES if you buy small enough components, and then fit tham in.

    It will work, but you do not use the SNES components, you would use modern components which can fit within the snes case.

    The reason you can't use the SNES components is that they are not advanced enough to run an OS.

    Well you use modern equipment, but don't you have to use the outlets inside the system. Also, you could use some snes componets couldn't you

    I can see how you use the power outlets etc, but I can't see that you would use odl outdated SNES components since they wouldn't work.
