so I am an arcade fanatic and I found this and just had to have it.
mame cabinet with coin operation for 300

I drove over there and got it. I am going to put my sig rig in it and run it as a mame cabinet. I am buying a laptop for daily use.

I am not sure what 2 do with the old computer and monitor in it but o well

I figure the specs on this thing will be

a raptor hard drive for games, gtx 295, 780i ftw, custom lcs, and I am going to recess 2 dvd burners into the cabinet, 26+ lcd monitor

mods to it will be
external radiator..or fans to remove heat from the case
some cathodes to make it look ballin.
custom fabbed change catched since this one aint got one
brushed chrome vynil
possible make it a 2 player board by getting some new mdf and controls

heh cool stuff. one of my friends down in GT helped set up a MAME cabinet like that once.
really neat stuff, but for the effort I'd almost prefer having a PC with MAME on it + good monitor.

but for retro nostalgia, there's few things that top an old arcade box

yes very overkill... but then again isnt my rig already overkill? I want to just toss in new games and not even have to wait a second... boot and go

I am looking for a laptop to use while I have this pc in the mame... it runs any emulation so far without a hitch
