Why would you want to do that?

Nice computer though. I particularly like the desktop image.

Fable looks a bit off screen, it might need repositioning for better results. Is the monitor actually a CRT (seems like on screens) and does it have any buttons for monitor menu to set the position of the screen, centering etc.? If it's a flat one that would be not the best choice for DosBox games different resolutions due to obvious reasons.
Otherwise nice build, does look good, though monitor in the center of the box instead of the edge would look a bit better I think.

I'm really no expert at all on this kind of thing, but do you have problems with cooling having that large area? I guess computers don't run as hot if your just running things like DOSBox though right?

Excellent work though. I love the idea of this. Especially for its showing off potential and portability

DOSBox doesn't use 3D acceleration, so the graphics card doesn't run too hot - but it's actually pretty CPU-intensive, so that and the motherboard does heat up quite a bit.
