  1. This is going to go perfectly with the Shield console that is being released this month. I think I might pick one up now.
  2. The only downside is the G3258 is only 2 cores. It smokes the 8-core FX-8350 @ 4.7GHz though so I think it'll do fine with Mortal Kombat X.
  3. It does doesn't it? I went with the G3258 after reading up on it for a few days. I watched a lot of videos on it too. From what I gathered it's the best performance for the price, especially when you overclock it(like it's made for). I've read when OCed to 4.4-4.5GHz it can stand up to the i7 4770K @ 4.4Ghz so it certainly seems like a great little chip considering the price difference between the two is $280 or an additional four G3258s. It really is a no brainer. Lol.
  4. Thanks man. Yeah that would've been a great build, I'm going to opt for a more budget friendly build though. I already built a $1000 PC last year. Appreciate the input though. Oh and I am going to use a Sammy SSD, just forgot to add it to the list at that time. I've read that if you were to use an AMD APU you should use an A10 6800K. I guess the 7700K and 7850K yeild problems with PC games and possibly some console games(?). The 6800K should be able to handle the DC and PS2. I've watch a few videos that had Dolphin running Mario Kart pretty well. That's because axed that build, great hardware just felt a bit overkill. I've been redoing the parts list. I stumbled upon a thread about the Pentium G3258 and saw it for $65 and decided that's a no brainer.The build I have parted out now is very similar to that of the parts list you posted. Actually, I did 3 parts lists(based off of my price range), a pure budget build, a mid-level build and mid/high-level build. Probably going to go with the G3258. AMD A10 6800K build Pentium G3258 build Core i5-4690K build
  5. Hi everyone, So basically I want to build a emulation only PC. I want to be able to play up to and including Dreamcast, PlayStation 2, GameCube and Wii. I've read lots of threads about the minimum requirements for these systems to work. I basically don't want to spend more money than I have to but I also don't want to skimp on anything that would be crucial for these systems to run the best they can. Anyways, here's what I have so far for a parts list. Any recommendations or insight as to whether this is overkill/underkill would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  6. My advice is to check out Simply Austin(austin585) on YouTube. His main goal was to make it for beginners so it's noob friendly. He has a dozen or so that walk you through how to setup HS/HL, HyperSync, Mame, RetroArch and the cores(more to come). Check him out, they're really good tutorials. Edit: I kind of feel stupid as I thought you were asking where to find a good guide for beginners. My Bad. But if someone is looking for videos, Austin is your man. By the way, great guide ouguitarman!
  7. I believe the only reasons people like the CRT TVs over LCD is because that gives you a more arcade feel to it and they work better with light guns. There are light guns that work with LCDs but they're more expensive. LCD will obviously look better and will be smaller(thinner) than a CRT TV. As for controls, I'm not sure as I've never bought any but I found this while doing a quick google search and it seems like a good place to start and maybe compare prices and check out reviews. At least until someone else that has bought controls before chimes in.
