New Project: Mame Arcade Multiplayer


Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

I'm starting a new project and developing my first MAME arcade machine. The cabinet I've selected to work with is a Williams NBA Jam cab. I do have some questions for folks who have developed their own MAME machines.

What is the best choice for a video card? I want to run games like Pac-man to more power hungry games such as Gauntlet Legends, or Mortal Kombat and modern games. I'm debating between building my own PC to power this cab.

Thanks for the input. Can someone tell me the difference between these two monitors when it comes to using them in a MAME Arcade solution? The guy i have building my cab for me isn't being very helpful when it comes to which monitor I should go with that would work best for old and new games.

I have a spare 27" LCD Acer monitor:


Could I use one as the arcade monitor or would the recommendation be to go with:

For sure the 27" LCD.. Basically the xgaming monitor has monitor mounts (direct mounting to arcade mounts built in the cab) and a cga connection for directly hooking up an arcade pcb or upgrading your arcade. Since you are using a computer all you need is vga and not the cga. Plus you can still easily mount the 27" lcd. And this will save you a ton of money. As long as the 27" has a remote and you dont cover up the sensor to turn it on or if it automatically turns on when it detects a signal then you will be fine. The arcade LCD looks no different in quality really, I have owned both.
