Got the machine that is in the title, and i want to convert it into a mame cabinet. I havent actually got the cabinet yet. Very soon though..(saturday 20th)
I have been reading up on the controls, how to wire them up and that. But im confused when it comes to connect the arcade monitor to my pc.
At the moment (i havent tested this) i want to run MAME on a DELL Optiplex GX520 SFF
Pentium 4 HT 2.8Ghz
2GB ddr2 ram
Intel GMA 950 onboard graphics.
Firstly, will most games run fine? I have a few other pc's that i could use but the dell is pretty small and would fit nicely in the cabinet, without getting rid of the case.
So, secondly, i have read you have to splice the rgb, h sync, v sync and ground into a vga cable. Then that goes into a converter that converts the signal from the pc to 15KHz refresh rate.
Am i right in saying that? I also read you may need a vga signal booster?
It would be great if you people could help.
