Title: Arcade Cabinet
Post by: baldyhead on December 28, 2015, 02:48 pm
I want to build out a decent sized arcade cabinet that can play some decent MAME games.  Probably something running a Raspberry Pi should suffice.  I'd like to find a low power screen that will go to sleep mode without spending a lot of money.  If possible I may turn the cabinet into a NAS as well to make use of the storage space within the cabinet itself.

I would highly recommend visiting the MAME subreddit. There a lot of great guides, support, and information on what parts to get. Also helpful guides for setting up the software side of things such as Hyperspin.

An arcade cabinet sounds really neat. It sounds like something that would be fairly easy to use. I would have something like that if I had multiple games and gaming systems. It would be something that would keep my games easy to access and easy to display as well.
