Good day all,

 

Thought I would say Hi real quick and let you know my plans, I'm pretty sure I'm going to need your advice on a few things  :rolleyes:

 

I love to emulate old systems and currently do it all on my Alienware 14 laptop. But have now decided to to build my first desktop so I can start p[laying on the big screen and eventually build an arcade cabinet also. I'm going to start with a nice budget system and have been doing plenty of research on the best options for my needs, but have a few questions before I dive in.

 

Thanks for reading, I look forward to speaking with some of you soon.

 

Adam

Here is a great guide for your first build. I used it and I had no problems.
