What all is involved in a DIY Arcade Cabinet? Suggestions?
I was browsing CL barters and noticed someone selling an old ratty cabinet that had emulators on it cheap and got me thinking about trying something like this.
I have a few spare laptops that should be able to support specs needed to run anything I would want to run. I have an extra 25" LCD computer monitor or extra 32" tv's I could use.
Some questions I have are more for the cabinet and PC specs.
More worth wild to try and build something to fit my monitors I have? Or buy prefabbed? Im not great with wood, but might be able to get someone to help or learn.
Next is on PC specs. Any outlandish video card specs needed? Or since 8-16bit graphics, could i run pretty much anything?
For sound since going through a PC, just run right off the internal video card and get PC speakers?
Any insight would be great on this so I know if this is worth dipping into or what to look for on older cabinets
