Can you please link the designs you have found so that we can know exactly what you are talking about?

That way, helping you would be much easier and more convenient for us.

As for whether you do Lo-ROM or Hi-ROM, that depends on what games you want to reproduce, because both are very different.

If you want a more detailed thread about the differences between Lo- and Hi-ROM, here it is.

Muramasa Entertainment sells universal SFC/SNES shells as well as the American square ones. There are also various PCBs with support for Lo-ROM, Hi-ROM and battery-backed SRAM. I haven't tried them yet myself, so I can't say if they are any good or not.

They also have Famicom and NES PCBs with shells in various colours.

The Muramasa boards are pretty expensive though..... Mortoffgames.com will be offering a similar board for less overall costs soon (along with other accessories).
