"I'm building an Arcade Machine, please give me your input"
I'm at the very basics right now. Planning out the cabnit design, which type of monitor to use, sound placement, control route, yata yata yata. Basically what I'm hoping to get from you guys is your strategy for building a computer only for running arcade games. Now, the library's over 1500 games but they're mostly 1980's era. I can't afford to buy the ones that aren't given free yet (and I'm wanting to keep this copyright legal if I can). I mainly want your input so I'm not killing a fly with a bazooka. I want it to run fast but I know it doesn't require a quad core processor, as much as I would like to say that I run pac man on one
So have at it, give me your opinion on what kind of system would be solid enough to do this.
