Buy one of these and mod it into a NES chassis:
You'll obviously need some RAM and probably a SSD to go with it.
It would be a fun project that would definitely set you apart from everybody else.
There's lots of guides out there from people that have done the same sort of thing.

thanks for link, i'll look into it. I thought about the NES chasis but i always preferred the look of the Master System for some reason. I'll probably just use an ITX case if i find one that looks nice.
SSD won't be necessary, i won't need the fastest loading, i was thinking of RT7lite of a windows 7 down to bare bones and just use Steam big screen mode to boot with...then i simply link games on steam to run their respective emulator and add my own image to display on Steam. That will take time to do for each game...but i think it's better than just opening an emulator then loading the game cause the requires a mouse, my way i won't need to use a mouse or keyboard once it's all setup. So Steam boots, i select Mario World or whatever with the gamepad and have it set to open in Snes emulator and voila. Plus Steam works with gamepads however i'm not sure if it works with any gamepad...still have to research more.
