 Intels graphics dissapoint me, i would've expected something better, but i can understand it, why put money in it when nobody uses it? and then im talking about the desktop users ofcourse

 I strongly disagree, Intel 4000 sucks for gaming (Think 5/10 for gaming at best) and that makes the i5 cpu overpriced, Might as well get a stripped down i3 if it just going to be a media server and overall it's too exspensive for what You get.

 You disagree with me? But you do agree with me...? And yeah you are right, youre just paying for crap you're not going to use. I mean, if you get the AMD Apu's, you actually get something that works in games

 Would this board and everything fit inside a n64?

 yes but so can an ITX board and a low profile GPU with angeled risers that would be much more powerful, believe me I've looked into it more than a couple times lol
