Working on my latest cocktail cabinet and pretty happy with how things are coming, it's time for me to consider the PC specs as woodwork is almost done. Basically, this is going to be a MAME 0.148 only cabinet so I'm not interested in modern PC gaming. Here's the specs I'm looking but was hoping to get some advice.
AMD A10-5800K APU
ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4-M Motherboard
2x4GB DDR3 1600
450W Corsair Power Supply
I've heard some say that the Intel i3 (even lower clock) can handle MAME well but other insist that i5 is the best for MAME if going the Intel route. Anyways, would love to hear some feedback especially with MAME performance.
