    Retrocade - bartop

    Ha ha.. tell me about it... It even prompted me to dig out the beast and Fire it up again.. But it looks like the processor has died.. (poor thermal contact from cheap paste) so I've had to pick up a replacement I3 2120 from Amazon for the princely sum of £24 🤣 I've noticed a couple of requests and pm for the artwork, so ill be digging that out and posting links shortly.

    How to speed up my...

    yes, basically on nvidia cards the first number is the series and the second is the model in the range, so the higher the better on both. aim for at least a 50 card or better on any series (4-10)

    How to speed up my...

    as stated above.. add an additional 4gb ram and up the gfx card to at least a 750ti a mixture of ssd and hdd will suffice (main o/s and preview vids on the ssd)

    Noise through Speakers

    glad to have been of some help...

    Noise through Speakers

    the volume discrepancy between the 2 speakers will be a problem. The 8 ohm speaker will take most of the power and the 16 ohm speaker will be much quieter. In general it's not a good idea. you could probably get it to work if you ran 2x 16ohm in series with an 8ohm in parallel. (per channel) or you could just get some decent full range speakers... just google speaker impedance and read the multiple threads on the subject...

    Richie, I've always found those amps to be frankly rubbish... (what do you expect for £10..) try one of these instead

    LEGO Batpin Build Blog (46/19/32)

    hi, you will find that a lot of the info on Degor's build is quite out of date. it can still be built, but you would be better off looking at a force feedback package from ZebsBoards

    Need Opinions on Computer Build

    you would only need 1 card - a gtx 750ti will run Hyperpin, VP & FP on 2 screens with no issues, unless you're looking to run a 4k play field, so the gtx 960 you have specced would be fine..

    Choosing the right games for your project

    I've found that you only probably need 150 - 200 mame games at most, my current system has 175 games on it the other 18,000+ you will never touch and are a waste of space. its the same with console systems as well.. i tend to limit them to the 40-50 games you are likely to play per system, rather than having scroll through thousands of games to find the one you actually want to play.
