Rig Spotlight: The GTXbox
With the Xbox One X set to launch in just a few weeks, GeForce Garage veteran Lee Harrington of PCJunkieMods wanted to make his own console-sized 4K gaming machine. So he took a mini-ITX GTX 1060 and an i5 processor and elegantly shoved everything into an Xbox One shell he picked up from ebay for $15.
Sure it's slightly larger and more expensive than the actual console ($900 in hardware alone vs. $500), the specs are pretty comparable and it definitely looks killer with the custom waterloop and window. Plus it runs full Windows OS so you have complete access to all your Steam games.
