Hardware Analysis
01/26/18 12:56 AM


Hi.

I'm in the process of setting up my first MAME machine, and I'd like to get feedback on the hardware I currently have.

I have a standard sized arcade machine with JAMMA wiring.

Right now I'm in the process of attempting to get my CRT monitor that came with the arcade fixed, so I'm using a LCD.

If the CRT is fixed, I plan on putting it back in the arcade, if not, I'm going to look for a better LCD (less wide screen, better viewing angles, lower response time, etc).

Since the arcade has a JAMMA harness and wiring, I plan on using a j-pac.

I'd like to be able to run as many as possible arcade games; non-arcade games (console emulation) is not a priority for me.

Right now the computer I was going to use has the following specs:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 860 @ .80GHz, 2801 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
OS : Windows 10
RAM : 8GB
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 SE

Would the above specs be sufficient for playing arcade games with a Hyperspin front end?

I know that if I do end up using the CRT, I'll need to replace the video card as it's my understanding that the one I have isn't compatible with the required resolution.

If that's the case I will replace the card with one that supports emudriver.

Any thoughts on the above specs and suggestions for a video card replacement would be greatly appreciated.

TIA.
