Purchasing the Parts
February 1, 2010
I have purchased some of the parts needed for the Machine.
Firstly I got the computer that will run MAME and the ROMs. I got a computer with the bare basic system requirements as you don’t need a lot to run MAME and the games.
The specs are:
Dell Optiplex GX270 P4 2.8GHz Desktop Computer
• Intel P4 2.8GHz processor
• 512MB DDR RAM
• 40GB hard drive
• DVD drive
• 64MB Integrated Intel 845 Graphics video
• Integrated audio
• Integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet
As for the Monitor I will be using an old Dell 17? CRT monitor temporarily until I can get a larger size monitor.
As for the controller I will be using the pre built X-Arcade Dual Tankstick controller. This controller has 2 tanksticks with Player 1 and 2 Buttons. Each player has 8 buttons with an additional 2 buttons on the sides for pinball games.
Pictures of the X-Arcade Controller will be added here when it is delivered.
