With the parts you're asking for and assuming you don't fry anything, I'd go with ~$70-$80. That's just my guess though. Maybe someone else can give you closer of an estimate.
Well thanks for that and your batteries. Any chance your going to have a pcb and smart charger for them batteries any time soon?
some of these are approximationsEDIT: I went through and have edited some of the above prices of what I have found to narrow it down. Also, can't I just use the 12v and step it down to the batterie voltage?
screen - $22
case - $10
n64 - $15
controller - $8
heatsinks - $10
resistor and capacitor for 3.3v - 50 cents
"some putty" - $8
and if you have extra parts lying around, you can usually scavenge for the capacitor, or the heatsinks, or whatever. and you probably have a n64 and controller.
and then basic tools, wire, solder, paint if you want it, etc. and probably other things i forgot to mention. so yeah, around $100 probably.
not to say you are going to fail right from the start, but it is almost guaranteed that you will end up frying something. the n64 is a particularly touchy piece of work. the key here is to not give up.
also craftsmenship is something that you want. It is what can separate a good portable from a bad one. it would be horrible to put so much hard work into making one of these things, and then do a sucky job on the case, which is what can be seen (obviously). If you wire the thing and then put it in a shoe box (lol), people will almost disregard your ability to make a handheld n64. just something to think about.
Thank you for your aproximations.
Well we'll have to see how much money I will turn out from my birthday, I still need to fix my DS Lite's top screen and been lurking different forums for a cheap screen.
And I will most definatly not be putting anything like an N64 in a shoebox, who do you think I am, I hobo sleeping in a cardboard box? Nah kidding, I'm using a ZN-45 case if that is the one most of us use for portables from polycase.com.
Thank for your posts guys and I'll be back on July the 18th with how much money I got, (won't be much I think...)
