I've read of at least one person over at vpforums that is using the integrated graphics.  I'd go ahead and give it a try and if you have problems you can always upgrade later.  I went with a Radeon R7 250E and haven't had any issues.  cost me around $70 on sale with a rebate.

Having a dedicated video card is preferred, but I think it will depend on what software you are going to run. If anything will run with onboard graphics I'm guessing it will be Visual Pinball.

To be honest, I didn't even try to run my setup without a video card, so I don't really know what performance will be like  :dunno

I picked up a used GeForce GTX460 for my build. There are plenty of these under $100 (and that's probably overpriced). I have had no problem running Visual Pinball, Future Pinball or Pinball FX2.

Keep up the good work! Your cab looks amazing so far  :applaud:

The other thing to consider is the resolution of the tables you want to run.

For higher resolution tables, onboard video may not be able to keep up.  I had to upgrade from onboard video to an Evga GeForce GT 430 card to keep the Doctor Who backglass from looking like Tom Baker's scarf.  :laugh2:

okok....i understand...i will Keep the Level high but not to expensive...is an Asus-Nvidia-GeForce-GTX750 a good choice to go with? ist not so expensive and i hope it fits well on vp/fp and emulators...?
At the moment my  piggy bank is a little bit empty and the mb desaster was a little bit unexpectedly - but now i will benefit to come to an upgrade. MB, Processor are ordered now... only a new graficcard is missing

There are some closely-numbered EVGA cards in the 700 series with a huge difference in specs.

The GTX 750 looks great (80GB/s Memory Bandwidth), but the GT 740 next to it isn't nearly as good. (28.5GB/s Memory Bandwidth)   :o

The easiest way is to check out the specs on this page then use the part number to price-check the exact model (01G-P4-2751-KR for the GTX 750 linked above) at the vendor of your choice.

You may also want to look at their 600 series cards like the GT 630 (01G-P3-2632-KR) since budget is an issue.   ;D

Sorry for that.... I would also do more and faster on the cab, but now I will build the pc system up and running well. I know, I have too less time that I need for that at the moment - sorry :(

Thanks @Superfrog...i would go a similar way with an emulator for mame and so on too. What was your way with the frontends? I use for the pinballpart PinaballX but to include a Dreamcast Emulator like Nulldc it is very hard to work with it. Which frontend is your first to wake up after an PowerON? And also to use as an Musicbox with the cabinet...it's tricky...i didnt get it which is the best way to include all

My first frontend was HyperSpin and from the menu base ( Mame / Snes/ Megadrive / Pinball ) I let start PinballX after you select the option Pinball.

Good luck

ps: Personal, I fond HyperSpin a pain in the Ass to config, I did use the latest versions.
Youtube did show me how to do some stuff  :banghead:

The front of this cab still looks amazing.  A question on the lock down bar piece.  It seems like on the sides it's a pretty big lip.  How does that feel on your hands/wrists when pressing the flipper buttons?  The way I rest my hands when playing it seems like it would get in the way.

ohh...i know it looks a little bit unusual, but ist very comfortly . The main thing about this piece of lip is there comes a controllerpart in it ;) - I would like to integrate an controller for playing "crazy taxi" or something like this with the dreamcast emulation. When it's really uncomfortly then i work on a pinballonlylockdownbar for changing... i will see - On my first design it had an spinner for Arkanoid-like-games too  ;D

Sorry, but allways too less time for this project... :( ...but i have now an eye on the controls at the lockdownbar -  i must rethink and customize all for this little size ...sidearts...puuhh....i was thinking a very long time to decide now..  None (or very small) side arts -  the most space i need for  the side "art" is to illuminate a white plexi that will be covered with the black/white  taxi Patterns ;)
