Why use one of the best PC cases when you can pack a gaming PC in the body of a Sega Dreamcast? That’s the question a modder named Temujin123 answers with his latest creation. Temujin123’s Dreamcast died about 10 years ago and they’ve decided to put it to good use instead of letting it become electronic waste (via Tom’s Hardware).

The custom PC runs on an AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 4650g APU, which means the modder didn’t have to find space for a dedicated GPU.

It’s not the most powerful gaming PC out there, but it’s still a fun project. The Samsung 970 EVO isn’t the best SSD anymore, but it’s still a good drive. More importantly, the custom PC can play games from DVDs, such as Supreme Commander.

The Dreamcast was ahead of its time in many ways, but it was ultimately a commercial failure. It was the last console Sega ever made, giving way to Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo in the console war.

Modders have found ways to pack PCs in all kinds of cases and cases, now including this custom Dreamcast version. The only question left is will it play Doom?
