[QUOTE=Kurozumi;41669]@RainMK, i basically did it, because i have no space for a big BVM here. Thanks for the kudos . I think it’s cool, too, if you can use any digital display type in any size, and boom, it’s “right and works” . And lets face it, at some point in the future, the BVMs and PVMs will be worn out / dead, and you won’t be able to fix them …
@Bytestorm, i’m going for a “240p RA machine build”, too, but i got no idea which GPU i should use, too. AFAIK CRT-Royale needs a decent gpu to run, but i got no idea, what’s the smallest GPU it runs it flawlessly![/QUOTE]
I use the lowest end alienware alpha i3 from last year with 4gb of ram and the custom nvidia 2gb GPU. I think it’s a 860M. The model is “ASM100-1580”. It runs your shader very well at 1080p. I have no issues with the 5400 rpm stock drive. Bluetooth works great. The complete system can be had for around $300 usd on ebay. The system can also play dolphin Ishiiruka wii at full speed upressed to 1080p. I have not tried 5.0 yet.
I use this system with hard gpu sync on and Bsnes blanaced and it runs great.
I am always looking for the best small formfactor and affordable emulation box. So far, as the older alphas go down in price they still seem like a great option.
