Hardware for a bartop arcade

  • Hi,

    It's been a while since I finished my gameboy zero project and I'd like to start a new one. I saw in the internet people making a arcade cabinet, my room is small so I prefer to make a bartop arcade cabinet, but that's not why I'm here.
    The thing is people use to say that raspberry pi 3 (model B I think) is the best system to emulate old videogames but I own an old PC with an Intel Core 2 Duo e7500 and a Geforce 9600GT (512Mb). I know it's old but in the raspberry pi 3 datasheet I realized it only has a 1.2 GHz processor with only 1Gb of RAM. Is my PC stronger to emulate SNES, Gameboy, maybe N64, Playstation... or by the other hand the Raspberry Pi 3 is better?

    Please help.

    I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

  • Hi @MichaelSmith
    As you already have your computer: just try with a USB stick, you'll get your answer under 10 minutes 🙂
    (according to me, you computer is better... may be laggy for GameCube and Wii ...)
