This is what I did:

I bought a small set of bookcase speakers, and a cheap Audiosource Amp 100 drive them. (amp costs less than 100 dollars)

Computer sound card out to amp via Y splitter (mini single rca on one side to left and right RCA jacks.)

Speaker wires run to amp on speaker binding posts.

It is just for background music while you get drunk.

So just to clarify

I need a pretty low spec pc but with lots of space for music files
A sound card
A touchscreen (possibly refurbished from ebay)
Some software such as what you have described in this post

And away I go???

sounds almost too easy. Did I miss anything?

I do have one obvious question though with regard to speakers

I want this in a fairly small place and its going to be used for background music only rather that sitting down and 'listening' to it ,so I don't need lots and lots of power or audiophile reproduction.

So to keep cost (and space requirements down) would it be best to try out some decent PC speakers?

If I did go with traditional speakers how would I get the PC connected to them. With a receiver?

I'm just about finished with my jukebox project. When I built my theater room, I also installed 12 speakers in the ceiling throughout the basement. I ran RCA cables from the HT receiver (Zone 2) to a nearby computer. I picked up a 17" ELO Touch Screen monitor and am mounting it flush into a wall in the game room and running video/usb cables to the nearby computer.

I spent hours and hours testing jukebox software and I fount SilverJuke (silverjuke dot net) to be the best by far.

I also subscribe to Sirius radio in my cars so I can use it online through the computer and output it through the HT receiver into the basement.

I will have pics of the whole setup later this week and will post them up.

Did you have to buy each game separately because 20 to 30 dollars a game is quite a bit. Just curious because I was thinking of getting one of these for my bar.

I hope you purchased the games. As your picture caption states 'pirated games'

I recently took a hard drive out of the mega touch game machine I thought it would run on my PC but it doesn't it has all the software on the hard drive but it seems like I just can't access it from Windows 7
