Intel based MAME Build. 1st timer!
01/15/14 05:22 PM


My build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/RAGMAN/saved/3rrA

Everything is going into a Data East 4-Player cabinet. I'll be running brand new Klipsch 2.1's and using a brand new ASUS 27" MX279H LED-lit monitor. It was the top rated monitor on DisplayLag.com's Input Lag Database list. This build is going in the cabinet and will only be used for my arcade.
My friend convinced me to stick with an Intel based CPU based on MAME's architecture and I beefed everything up considering how CPU intensive MAME is. The graphics card was to ensure that I wouldn't have frame rate issues with the 27" monitor. I'm sure my build is a bit overkill but I wanted to invest in a solid rig now so that I didn't have to upgrade in the not to distant future. My goal was $700 and with the rebates I meet that.
So, any thoughts? Any compatibility issues you folks see? This was my first build and it was a lot of fun!!

Thanks!
