    Default Websites with high resolution Famicom game covers?

    I was just looking through Mobygames and stumbled across their NES/Famicom section. I had a look at their Megaman entries and discovered the awesomeness of the Famicom box art. Looking at other NES games gave me the same result. Pretty much all the Famicom versions of box art were miles better than their western counterparts.

    An example is just looking at the original Megaman

    US version (ugh, what were they thinking)- http://www.mobygames.com/game/nes/me...CoverId,39984/

    Japanese version (awesome) - http://www.mobygames.com/game/nes/me...overId,228537/

    Does anyone know of a website that has a collection of high quality famicom box art? Mobygames is ok, but putting their mark on the bottom of the image ruins it, and the images are not exactly high resolution. I would like to collect some to use as desktop backgrounds.
