/pictures/100x150__img_030_2.jpg My hardware:
  • AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2500+
  • 256 MB ram
  • 40GB Maxtor disk
  • 40GB IBM disk
  • 250GB Maxtor disk
  • GeForce FX 5200
  • Hauppauge PVR-350

There are still some things that needs attention on this archade mashine, I need to hide the keyboard and mouse and set in the original controles. I would olso like to tribbel the amount of ram but the finances seems to be lacking. Futhermore I had to put foam on the inside of the archade box in order to minimize noice. That resultet in a heat problem. So I have som "outstandings" in order to make the archade mashine work as I would like, but as of now this works.

Hardware wish list:

  • 1GB ram
  • Wather cooling system
  • SCSI disk for recording and transcoding
