I'm considering another project soon. A few years back, I built a couple 6 foot cabinets with stereo sound, amps, computer boards, drives, large 21 in. Crt monitors, ipac USB boards and full stick and button controls. Used to hit some pretty good bass with the audio especially on fighting games like the King of Fighters series. I think I'm about ready to do another one. Might do a table version as well. More to come when I start these. Full pictures and step by steps.

Unfortunately no. Haven't had the time really and on top of that, I'll probably be moving in a month or so. What I have managed to set up is a pretty nice desktop unit with approximately 10,000 games running without issues. I may end up making a coffee table style 4 player control deck with happ controls and led lighting. My desktop is connected to a full sound system by Pioneer. I'll get some pics up of what I have and what I plan to do. This is also connected to a 32 inch LCD monitor.

What all did it take to build the system..? I want to build a multi game upright.

Nothing really. I'll try to get some pics in a day a day or so. I was fortunate enough to find a desktop adequate enough to run pretty much everything. Right now just using standard USB game pad. I also have an adaptor Which connects via USB and has a port for gamecube, xbox, and playstation.
