I have seen a lot of questions asking about what builds would be best to run hyperspin and emulators so I decided to come up with a list of a few builds at different price points. I am far from an expert in building computers but I have built a few in my life and thought I could help. I will go back and edit these builds based on comments or drastic changes in prices of parts. I am sticking with Intel builds (mostly due to their performance with emulators) but I welcome someone to message me some AMD builds at the different price points. The three price points I am going for are Under $200 (Can handle some Dolphin and PCSX2 with overclocking), Under $350 (Can be used up to and including ps2, dreamcast, gamecube, wii), Under $550 (should perform well with any system). I would like to add an ITX build to this as well, but would first like some feedback on these. Under $200 Build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Km3mt6 Under $350 Build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2wyqvK Under $550 Build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jjhmt6 Please note that I have not added more than 1 TB of storage in these builds since I assume that could be added after the build is made. I have also excluded a SSD to keep the overall cost as low as possible.
Hello everyone, I'm trying to get a new PC specifically for Hyperspin. My current Desktop just doesn't cut it, and honestly my end goal is to have a custom 'console' that runs all these games in one single streamlined interface where I never (or almost never) have to pull out a keyboard. Here is the specs I am currently running this on. CPU: AMD A8-5500 3.2GHZ GPU: AMD R7 260X 2GB RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) PSU: 600 Watt As you can no doubt tell, my CPU is not exactly top of the line. As result, what I've found is that while I can run 8, 16, 32, & 64 Bit consoles very well (pretty much everything from NES to PSX) Anything above that ends up in me giving me various problems (fps drops, etc), and I've recently learned that it's not just the CPU's GHZ that I need to focus on. I was told that "single-thread performance" is an important factor, and was pointed to a Intel G3258 processor. Now, obviously I can't just pop an Intel CPU in my motherboards AMD FM2 socket. So I'm thinking of just getting a new CPU all together, and I've been looking at these beautiful machines to fulfill my needs: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/landingpages/syber/ (Obviously the "Vapor One" line, and not the steam machines) So what configuration would be best for this sort of thing? Here's what I'm thinking: CPU: Intel® Pentium™ Anniversary Edition G3258 3.2 GHz 3MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1150 (All Venom OC Certified) (It's my understanding that it can be overclocked to 4.0Ghz, but I don't know how to do that or if it's necessary for this project, or would it be better 'bang for the buck' to get an i7-4790k?) GPU: AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 (I NEED an AMD GPU, because stereoscopic 3D is important to me, and AMD's method of doing it is vastly superior IMHO thanks to TriDef) RAM: 16GB (How many GBs you have is as far as my understanding of RAM goes, and I thought it'd be nice to double it) PSU: 450 Watts - Standard SFX 80 Plus Bronze Active PFC Power Supply According to the website, that's all I need, but it seems way too low, right? HDD: 1 TB 7200RPM SATA300 Hard Drive I would love a 2TB, but it's only listed as 5400RPM... does that even matter? So there you have it, the build I had in mind. Is that worth the 803$ that the above website is quoting me at? I guess I should also mention that I will be doing basic PC gaming on it as well, but everything I want to play (outside of the PC version of GTA V) runs very well on my current PC. Please let me know what you guys think, because after learning about single-threaded performance, I don't feel like I know half as much as I thought I did about PCs, and really don't want to spend a lot of money just to be disappointed. (I almost bought another AMD APU) lol so you know how bad I almost screwed up.
