Hello everyone,
With Valve recently announcing the Steam Box (they are calling it Steam Machines), there are a few interesting things that have come to our attention. First, they are releasing Steam OS to be installed on any computer. This means that you can build a custom "steam box," install Steam OS, and bang presto! Steam Box!

You can check out all the details of the announcement here:
Steam Machines: http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamMachines/
Steam OS: http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/
Steam Controller: http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamController/

With this in mind, it is very probable that building a steam box for yourself will deliver a much higher price/performance ratio, as well as greater customization options, than buying one from a manufacturer, just as with desktop computers. Now, there are people who would like this higher price/performance and customization, but aren't confident enough with handling the expensive components. That's where I come in.

What I would be offering are a few different "preset" levels (say about $350, $650, $950, this could change based on further details as they continue to release them), of steam boxes that I will build and ship to you for bitcoin. In addition, for a little bit extra we can customize it to your own liking.

So, who would be interested in this?

PRAISE BE TO HIGH LORD GABEN FOR HE HATH DELIVER US

Anyway, this sounds like a nice idea Smiley but would it not be better to wait and see what their preset modules are before offering a custom build?

Probably. This is just to see who might want one if it did happen. Couldn't really do it unless I had at least a few people who wanted one.
