Re: $6,000 Gaming PC that can play every game in MAME at full speed

Hi RB,

Assuming you are going to build an arcade cabinet (which I am - introducing the youngest kid plus my first MAME cab was pretty severely damaged in a move and has never been quite right since), then you wouldn't even need a case, just snap all that stuff together mounted to the cab. Can you imagine any pitfalls doing this?

I only ask because I'm in the process of gathering and researching materials for my next build. My previous cabs I've always just used old tower PC's from the house (didn't even buy new stuff), but I figured assembling a computer can't be all that hard, so I decided to start with new this time, and just to assemble my own on this build.

So far I'm looking at (from Newegg)

Core i7-6700K link $309

ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming/AURA LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Motherboard link $154

HyperX Fury 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz DRAM link $104

EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GAMING Graphics card link $139

HGST Deskstar NAS 3.5" 4TB 7200 RPM (I assume 4T is enough) link $149

Rosewill ARC-450, ARC Series 450W Power Supply link $39

So then, I was planning Windows OS just due to familiarity. $100

Skipping any optical drive, and no additional fans since everything that needs one seems to comes with one, bringing my grand total to $994, about half of what it would be in a Dell case, for example.

Opinions?

[edit to add: I don't know brands from Adam, so I'm not married to any of the above, if there are better reputed components to consider.]
