The J-Pac is for the controls and the AVGA is for the graphics - you'd need both.

HTH

Yup. The J-Pac handles the controls and physically connects the PC video to the monitor, but normal arcade monitors can't display PC video resolutions so you also need the ArcadeVGA.

Yes, but he can use soft15hz with a compatible video card. It's cheaper an has a better overall performance (at least if he wants to use modern/unmentionable arcadePC games).

+1. I used to be ArcadeVGA exclusive, but now I use Soft15Khz instead. Nearly every games comes up right away, a few had to be tweaked. I sync to monitor refresh (mame video option) and enable frameskipping and the result is perfect for scrolling games -- no tearing, looks as good as running the original PCB. Every once in a while it'll skip a frame due to the timing mismatch, but that's a small price to pay for very good emulation.
